Antigua Travel Guide | Visiting During Antigua Sailing Week Video Transcript:

In today’s video, we’re taking you to a little island in the Caribbean: Antigua!

It had been a few years since we last travelled to the Caribbean, so to say we were excited was an understatement! AND because our visit also happened to coincide with Antigua Sailing Week, there was quite literally even more reason to celebrate.

So in this video we’re going to show you some fun things to do in Antigua and taking you along to some of Sailing Week related activities.

Antigua Sailing Week started back in 1968 when a group of friends decided to hold a regatta. Because quite a few in the group worked in the tourism industry, the objective of the regatta was to extend the winter season by getting people to stay on the island just a little bit longer. And well, today it’s become one of the biggest events of the year!

And because the Sailing Week celebrations were happening, we also got to enjoy Reggae in the Park featuring international artists.

It’s no secret that we love to eat, so we were very excited to learn how to prepare a few Caribbean dishes – all of them featuring rum.

And in between all the cooking, there was also time for a rum tasting, which was a pleasant surprise!

The meal turned out wonderful and we really enjoyed getting to share it with other travellers. We had seconds, thirds, and then it was time for a mouthwatering cake!

And last but least, we made some time to visit the capital of Antigua: St John’s.

Initially, our plan had been to try and find some Caribbean food in town, but everyone kept suggesting Big Banana, so that’s where we ended up.

And that’s a wrap for Antigua!

We hope you guys enjoyed exploring this Caribbean island with us, and be sure to let us know what island you’d like to see us explore next!

Wishing you happy travels and see you in the next video.
