Like the Cool Kids

With the heat ramping up on what’s going to be the next best Caribbean holiday destination, Antigua and Barbuda are way ahead of the game with a host of summer holiday savings now on until September.

If you want to lay back and soak up the deliciously warm tropical sun on some of the best pink and white beaches, then this gorgeous twin-island destination is perfect for you and loved ones. With great savings on airfare and accommodation, your dream vacation just got a little closer to becoming a reality.

Not into lounging all day on a sandy beach? Then grab one of the summer steals on tickers for tours, attractions and restaurants. Nature lovers are in for a treat as the Adventure Tour and Hiking Summer Savings deal gets you all the fun of a group hike without the fuss. Enjoy a 15 per cent discount on tickets and all you have to do is show up. The tour company takes care of the rest. Want even more of a thrill? Then absolutely look into the Rainforest Canopy Tour and the zip line and rope adventure tour through the heart of the rainforest. Reservations are strongly recommended, but have none when you get there.

If you’re looking to experience a real Caribbean vibe, nab a party cricket ticket, we suggest taking a few snacks with you, and watch as the world’s best cricket players hit ‘em for six. If you think you’re ready for it, go brave and book tickets to any of the pre-Carnival fetes (parties) slated every weekend until the end of August.

We haven’t forgotten you foodies either. If you’re in town in September, be on the lookout for the Francis Nunes Jr. Memorial Fishing Tournament & Seafood Festival on through 27th September and 28th September 2019. Never fear though, as fresh seafood and fantastic local fare are available year-round. Some of our favourite spots include Ana’s Restaurant and Art Gallery, an easy to spot restaurant by its signature hot pink doors; this is one of Antigua and Barbuda’s go-to spots.

For a local experience, visit the Atlantic View Restaurant and enjoy the uninterrupted views away from busy St. John’s. Created by culinary students, each course is prepared with an international edge without losing its Caribbean appeal. For an Indian and Caribbean fusion dining experience by the beachside, check out Castaways for lunch or a cosy cocktail. You can even rent a beach chair and umbrella if you feel like sipping by the shore side.

For the romantics, we’ve got you covered as Antigua and Barbuda are among the best places to get married. Whether you’re planning a summer wedding with friends and family, or a cheeky ceremony for a few year-round, the top-notch on and off beach venues will please any couple. With convenient legal and planning services, couples can relax and enjoy their time without the stress of wedding planning.

Visiting Antigua and Barbuda during any time of the year just got easier. But with these great #WhatCoolLooksLike Summer Campaign specials, you and your loved ones have even more incentive to take advantage of the many discounts available through May to September. Just remember, when you get to the islands, you become a member of the Cool Club one time! For more information head on over to
