Getting Around Antigua

While there are plenty of taxis available on the island, rates can be steep. If you’re going to want to go out to dinner and to beaches or other towns, we recommend renting a vehicle for at least part of your stay.

American drivers will have to get used to driving on the “wrong,” or left, side of the road. Driving at night can be particularly challenging, with cows, goats, and speed bumps on the roads. By paying careful attention, you’ll get the hang of it. Roads can be windy, so be very cautious, and try not to pass if it’s at all possible.

To get the most out of your Antigua vacation, we recommend renting a car before you arrive (especially during high season, Sailing Week in April, and August Carnival). Our villa specialists are happy to help you arrange your car rental.
