In the English port is the Nelson Dock Yard. The British used it to manage their trade in the Caribbean a few centuries ago. The harbor is well protected in a bay. That’s how I imagine the Caribbean.
The capital Saint John is located in the northwest of the island and the Museum of Antigua & Barbuda was interesting. I snorkeled on several beaches and there were a few fish to discover.
I found the most budget accommodation on AirBNB.
I can recommend as location the capital Saint John. It’s centrally located and you can explore the rest of the island cost-effective with buses.
I stayed in an AirBNB with a 30-minute walk to the central bus station. Around the corner were a mini market and a 15-minute walk a larger supermarket. It had AC, a fan, a fridge, a microwave, and cutlery. In the microwave, I made myself warm coffee for breakfast and oatmeal porridge.
There is an international airport.
Budget transport from the airport to the city:
At the airport are only taxis and no public transport.
The road to Saint John is a few minutes walk away. I wait for about 1 hour for the next bus, probably I had just missed the other.
Budget transport on Antigua:
There are larger buses, all of which have a number.
