In fear of the Zika Virus, a lot of travelers changed itineraries and avoided the countries included in list issued by The Centers for Disease Control which covered places all over the world.
"When it comes to Zika, if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, those are the buckets the CDC recommends you don't travel to a Zika-infected area. Otherwise, you're safe to go, just bring your bug repellent", as reported by CBS Chicago.
Areas located in Central and South America, Caribbean, or Asia were comprised on the list of potential Zika outbreak. So, the CNTraveler shared some Zika-free destinations that people can still enjoy despite the health scare. Here they are:
It is a British colony in the North Atlantic Ocean where the oldest British town, St. George, in the New World is located. The town was also officially recognized by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site. The island is known for its pink beaches and colorful homes.
An "estancia" which is a working ranch embodies the guacho life, which is where people ideally stay when in Uruguay. You'll enjoy the beautiful Art Deco buildings and museums running through Ciudad Vieja.
This country has a lot to offer despite its narrow strip as a land. Activities ranging from skiing at the Andes to trekking in Patagonia. You'll never run out of things to do when you visit this South American country.
4. St. Kitts and Nevis
If you're looking for the Caribbean experience, then we suggest for you to visit these islands. True island vibe screams in this country with reggae music festival in June where you can expect Damien Marley and Tarrus Riley to play.
Of course, safety and security should be a top priority and so, availing a travel insurance will always make everything less stressful. Just be sure to purchase the one with "cancel for any reason policy" to cover trip cancellation due to Zika outburst, as stated by Kedra Thornton of Royal Travel & Tours.
