Antigua and Barbuda Holidays
While it’s true that Antigua’s beaches are without parallel in the world of seaside resorts, there is much more to this locale than turquoise waters and dazzling sunsets. This Caribbean nation is bursting with culture and has a rich history behind it. Consider Antigua and Barbuda holidays for an amazing time.
Though economic activity was introduced to the locale in the 17th century by Sir Christopher Codrington when he set up several sugarcane plantations and sugar processing windmills, they estimate habitation here to have begun as early as 2400B.C. Evidence of these settlements and activities are available today. Plenty of cultural events and activities await visitors besides the warm smiles of the Antiguans.
