Vertical Magazine - Over Tropical Waters
Throughout the tropical blue/green waters of the Caribbean there are thousands of individual islands. Some are tiny, undeveloped outposts of natural habitat. Others are quite large with vibrant population and business centers, and alluring beach resorts that attract visitors from around the globe. Many islands are governed as territories of foreign countries; others have formed their own governments to establish themselves as sovereign island nations. But common among almost all is their dependence on the almighty tourist dollar to create jobs and sustain their economies.
