Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda are Caribbean islands located in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are rich in history and you'll find a unique mixture of British and West Indian tradition.

The official language is English, although there are also some local dialects.

Antigua and Barbuda are located in the middle of the Lesser Antilles with the island of Guadeloupe to the south, Montserrat to the southwest, Saint Kitts and Nevis to the west and Saint Bartholemy (also known as Saint Barts, Saint Barths, or Saint Barth) to the northwest.

The islands have a warm and dry tropical climate. They are blessed with some of the best weather in the Caribbean, with an average temperature of 25° C, the climate is close to perfect year round. Soaked with tropical sun almost every day and cooled by the trade winds, scented with jasmine and low humidity year round. The hot season is between May to November with average temperature ranges from 21 degrees Celsius (70° F) to 30 degrees Celsius (86° F).

Antigua Carnival

One of the most famed West Indian festivals is the raucous Antigua Carnival, which begins every year in late July and pounds out reggae and calypso rhythms for 10 days. The carnival ends with a parade - your chance to toast the event's Carnival Queen and Calypso King - and final "street jump" on the first Tuesday of August.

Revelers who tire of steel bands and rum may seek quiet on Antigua's near-undeveloped sister island Barbuda, about 50 km south, where ship-wrecks and reefs offer spectacular diving zones; the island's northwestern lagoon features a sanctuary housing more than 5,000 elegant Fregata magnificens (frigate birds).
