      Caribbean leads in environmentally- conscious tourism

      Sunday, February 1, 2004

      SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico: The Caribbean is the region that holds the
      highest number of Green Globe certified hotels worldwide, with more
      than 50 properties fulfilling Green Globe's demanding requirements
      for environmentally- conscious management and practices.

      The trend is growing at a fast pace, with an expected 20 independent
      Caribbean properties that will receive certification by the end of
      2004, as a result of a close cooperation with the Caribbean Alliance
      for Sustainable Tourism (CAST).

      Under an agreement between CAST and Green Globe Asia Pacific, signed
      in October 2003 in Barbados, CAST is providing technical support and
      advice to these properties and showing them the way towards best
      practices and management standards promoted by Green Globe.

      Properties in the Caribbean are becoming increasingly aware that
      sound environmental practices not only preserve the natural resources
      surrounding them, but it also allows substantial savings on
      operational costs and, perhaps most important of all, gives them an
      additional marketing tool to target the ever-growing number of
      environmentally-conscious vacationers.

      For more information about Green Globe certification, contact
