Is it safe for travel?
Travel in this Caribbean country is very safe. It is always advisable that volunteers dress modestly and leave any valuables at home.

What immunizations do I need to have?
Since immunization recommendations are ever changing and everyone’s personal health history is different we strongly recommend that you consult a travel clinic 6 weeks before travelling so that you can be up to date on all of your immunizations.
