Life in Antigua and Barbuda is living on the beach: a soft, pink-tinged sand that hugs the waters teeming with coral reefs. There are no bad beaches; all are hypnotic strips of pristine white sands, ideal for walking, swimming, lounging and eating.
There is no public transportation in Barbuda, but Antigua has an acceptable network of vans and small private buses. Both Antigua and Barbuda have government regulated rates, but it is best to confirm this with the driver before boarding.
That is why we recommend you rent the new Hyundai Tucson 2021.
When we speak of the Hyundai Tucson without a doubt, we are making it one of the models that has allowed Hyundai to establish itself in the American and European markets. This is the ideal vehicle for you to go with your family or friends to explore the islands and meet such special places as:
Fort James, a small fort on the north shore of Saint John’s harbor, dates from 1706, but most of what you see was built in 1739. Some of its 36 guns, a powder magazine and part of its wall are still intact. The decadent, seldom-frequented place is very evocative. Fort Bay, a narrow tree-sheltered beach that runs north of the fort, is popular with natives but has no services.
Over time, like a good wine, the Hyundai Tucson has only improved: a spacious and comfortable cabin, which can easily accommodate four adults. Especially good is the habitability in the rear seats, in terms of legroom and headroom.
Thus, with your vehicle full of all your friends you can enter more interesting places such as Old Road, a village that combines a humble and simple community with two luxury resorts (Curtain Bluff and Carlisle Bay), it is the beginning of the Fig Tree Drive, 8 km of poorly paved road in the middle of a tropical forest, among old mangoes and bananas with giant leaves with stalls selling fruit, jam and juices.
The 90-minute journey through the tropical forest entitles you to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in Antigua. Being difficult to access, it is usually deserted. The path is not marked, so you have to ask your neighbors for precise directions or hire a guide.
