I haven’t been on this island too long but it’s quite interesting to me to be in a place that depends so heavily on tourism.
When I spoke to my taxi driver from the airport he mentioned how much the natives love tourists; tourism is the main source of income in the country and without it many people would be unemployed.
The only interactions I’ve had with locals have been with my taxi drivers (3 total) and they can all agree on two things:
- Without tourism the country wouldn’t exist
- They absolutely love living in this country
