  • A nice park in Antigua. Just find yourself a place to sit and enjoy the daily life as it goes on. Lots of students use the par to relax and socialize.
  • This is a very fascinating place! At first you may wonder why the buildings are all old and ancient looking and then you realize that it was intentional so that you can have that colonial feel without losing the modern touch (Dominoes and Burger Kings are still inside :D ) This place is a really perfect mix of the past and the present while offering some really scenic views
