In 1989, Hurricane Hugo, struck Montserrat with full force, producing sustained winds of 140 miles per hour. It damaged more than 90 percent of the structures on the island. The tourist economy was virtually wiped out. Within a few years, the island had recovered considerably, only to be damaged again, and even more severely by volcanic activity that started in 1995.
Tourists are returning to Montserrat and a number of enterprising hotels and villas have opened recently. Contact these courageous businesses for room and villa rentals: Tropical Mansion Suites, Montserrat Enterprises, Montserrat Villas and Tradewinds Real Estate.
