Following the Caribbean's severe hurricane season, the Martinique Tourism Authority and the Tourism Board of the Islands of Guadeloupe reported that both destinations emerged totally unscathed from the powerful storms Harvey and Irma.

Both French Caribbean islands were able to welcome visitors right after the storms with all businesses up-and-running, including hotels, B&Bs and villas as well as restaurants and tourist sites. Normal operations on the islands resumed less than 24 hours after the hurricanes passed near their Atlantic coasts. The hurricanes left no infrastructural damage. The islands' cruise ports and the international airports of Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe, and the international airport Aime Cesaire of Martinique were fully operational shortly after the storms.

"Hotels did not interrupt their services and suffered no damage. The National Park has been cleared and is now open to the public," said Sandra Venite, USA director for the Guadeloupe Islands Tourism Board.

Norwegian Air actually increased its 2017 seasonal air service and added new routes to both Martinique and the Guadeloupe Islands following two successful winter seasons.

With more flights and departure cities from the US, festive events and happenings, Martinique and the Guadeloupe Islands will welcome with open arms the growing number of American visitors.

Mousseau added: "All our hoteliers, services and magnificent sites are ready and eager to welcome our American guests. We are dedicated to offer each of our guests a fabulous and authentic French Caribbean experience."
