WASHINGTON — The Caribbean is a top international destination for travelers in the majority of U.S. states and that includes those from both Maryland and Virginia.

Trip insurance company InsureMyTrip.com said travelers in 26 states rank the Caribbean as No. 1. The information is based on travel insurance purchased on the site in 2017.

In Maryland and Virginia, the Caribbean is followed by the United Kingdom and Italy.

When compared to its neighboring states, District residents diverge from the East Coast’s love of sun and sand, preferring to head east, rather than south.

The top three international destinations for D.C. travelers are the UK, Italy and France.

InsureMyTrip.com said New York, Maine and Connecticut report the highest percentage of trips to Italy.

Travelers in Hawaii pick Japan as a favorite destination.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
