  • Description
    Those Cuban rafters who leave from the south side of the island often wash up in the Cayman Islands. A refugee camp existed in the Cayman Islands during the 1990s and held almost 2,000 Cuban rafters at its peak in 1994-1995. Most were transferred to Guantánamo or allowed to repair their rafts and head back to sea. Those who continued their journey and survived, generally landed in Honduras. Local newspapers and magazines in the Caymans often published stories about the rafters.
