I donâ€™t know what to tell you about
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 didnâ€™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 Eliâ€™s Eco Tour. It really was incredible. I will tour with Eli again, only next time weâ€™ll do the Circum-Nav.
Highlights (other than Eli) include the little bit of shopping I was able to do. Now, if youâ€™ve read my other blogs (especially my cruise blogs â€“ the Legend was an AWESOME cruise â€“ check it out), or you know me personally, you know Iâ€™m not a â€śshopperâ€ť by any means. However, I had a hard time passing up the clothes in the shop Exotica Antigua (again more risquĂ© sounding than it really is). There were NICE menâ€™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. Iâ€™m not a jewelry and handbag person, so I canâ€™t help you out there; but we were able to get some unique things for CHEAP on
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
