While residents of the Virgin Islands may not be able to vote in the upcoming presidential election, they can cast their ballots in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Caribbean Vacations List. And the territory’s Tourism Department hopes you’ll vote for the U.S. Virgin Island, it indicated in a press release issued Friday
According to U.S. News & World Report, “Your expectations for the perfect Caribbean getaway can fade fast without proper research and planning. Many islands boast the stereotypical ocean breezes, warm white sand and crystal clear water of postcard lore. But some have limited activities away from the resorts and beaches that are too jam-packed to enjoy. Let our research help you pick the best and most affordable Caribbean vacation for any time.”
Voters must decide whether the Caribbean destinations belong on the list. They’re then ranked according to the number of votes they receive.
On Friday evening, St. Martin/St. Maarten was leading the list with 1,149 “yes, belongs on the list” votes. The U.S. Virgin Islands was fifth with 645 yes votes.
Each island comes with a travel guide that includes things to do, hotels, photos, and more.
