Caribbean tourism strategy getting more inclusive

Ministers of tourism for Caribbean nations are meeting in Freeport, Bahamas on shared issues. From Travel Weekly: "On the hotel front, a certification program for disabled-friendly hotels will include ratings for properties 'to help the physically challenged identify properties catering to their specific needs,' the minister said."
That's a welcomed development, and evidence of the growing trend of including people with disabilities in tourism's mainstream.
