The thing is the list is not a numerical order --it is a quality rating--highest is 94.

All USVI locations were given poor ratings. In particular they said that St. Thomas residents were "rude".

Default Proud that Tobago made the list

Thank you Phil&Liz for that link........

I 'm so proud to see Tobago made it.....I must admit.it deserved the ratings that it got......there's still alot of work to be done for it to be ranked higher...our government has some work to do to lure tourist like urslef to our beautiful country.

I'm from Trinidad & Tobago by the way. Really from the islad of Trinidad, however it's one country.

Do you notice a common thread among the negative reports? Those rotten cruise ships are the cause of their low marks. I understand the sentiment and wish it was not so, but alas, we do arrive by the thousands every day. On a positive note, it is also the means of survival on many of the islands. I will continue to visit the islands via cruise ship but hope to remain respectful of the local culture, and sensitive to the environment.
