Antigua and Barbuda

Though Antigua is a very safe place, secure your purses and wallets. Walk only with the necessary money, avoid street urchins and vagrants and don't be afraid to ask for help. If you rent a car, park in a well-lit area.

Avoid taking unusual risks, eat more from packaged goods. However the public market is a great place to mingle and get inexpensive provisions.

There are some signs on the road of St. John's, providing you with the ten principles of healthy living:

Breathe deeply

Drink water

Sleep peacefully

Eat nutritiously

Enjoy activity

Give and receive love

Be forgiving

Practice gratitude

Be accepting

Take your time


Languages spoken are English official and local dialects. There is also an expanding Spanish-speaking migrant population.

The locals are very friendly and respectable. Approach them in a courteous manner and it will undoubtedly be returned to you. Approach them with a smile and remember please, thank you, good afternoon.
