ANTIGUA

I don’t know what to tell you about Antigua other than it’s an incredible place with friendly people.  When I win the lottery, I’m buying a nice house on a nice beach and you’re all invited.

 

The island boasts 366 beaches (one for every day of the year and an additional just in case.)  From what I could tell, every one is absolutely gorgeous.  We didn’t spend any time on a beach, but we were in the water and on a boat the whole time.  Check out the review of Eli’s Eco Tour.  It really was incredible.  I will tour with Eli again, only next time we’ll do the Circum-Nav.

Okay, there's a giant moray eel hiding in these rocks. I saw him, but he's camera shy so you'll just have to believe me.

 

Highlights (other than Eli) include the little bit of shopping I was able to do.  Now, if you’ve read my other blogs (especially my cruise blogs – the Legend was an AWESOME cruise – check it out), or you know me personally, you know I’m not a “shopper” by any means.  However, I had a hard time passing up the clothes in the shop Exotica Antigua (again more risqué sounding than it really is).  There were NICE men’s linen shirts for $30 (as opposed to around $95 in the states for a similar shirt.)  I was able to get a couple shirts and a dress for less than $20.  Almost everything in there was under $15 US and it was all incredibly UNIQUE!  The other shops and straw market were well priced.  I’m not a jewelry and handbag person, so I can’t help you out there; but we were able to get some unique things for CHEAP on Antigua.

 

If I had to rank these islands, I would put this one near the top.  The people were friendly, the island was beautiful, the snorkeling was fantastic, and Eli was AWESOME!  Look out Antigua, I’ll be back!
