About the location

Antigua, home to one beach for everyday of the year. At least that is what they say, I have not counted them all and I doubt anyone else has. What this previously British Royal Navy strong hold does have is a storied history that involves natives being pushed out by Amazonians, being found and left alone by Christopher Columbus, and then Brittan taking over the island, bringing thousands of slaves from Africa. It is a gorgeous Caribbean island with breathtaking views, lots of history, and great food.

Guide Summary

This guide is based on someone coming to the island on a cruise or at least not staying very long. I visited the island on a cruise so I have used my first had experience and knowledge to tailor this itinerary to a cruiser's needs, wants, and requirements. Topics covered are COVD, excursions, what to see, packing, and more. If you are headed to the island on a cruise, you need this guide!
