What’s up with Antigua? Sandals Closing!!!


Sandals Antigua Closing!

An excellent vlog on some inherent problems with Antigua from Eli Fuller- Resident and business man owner of tours such as the Antigua Adventure Tour and the only Antigua Eco Tour. I understand and agree with pretty much everything that he says here but it’s a good video because he talks about the risks of allowing complacency to creep in. Here what is wrong with Antigua is years of complaicancy. The tourist board is shockingly bad and the investment in Antigua over the years has been mostly from external private businessmen like Eli and the resorts themselves.

Wake up Antigua! Start to support your own best asset. Yes the beaches are amazing but they are no longer enough. Cuba, Dom Rep, St Lucia the list goes on…why is Antigua so much more expensive and in some cases not as good. Do you think people just need a beach? Did you buy your latest mobile phone without a camera, without a flashlight? Tourism moves on and you have to keep up.

Hey Asshole. Who is the asshole? The asshole in my opinion is the man or woman who keeps increasing the airport taxes (in the name of security) like we don’t notice. It certainly isn’t the guy you can see here but you puts the word asshole and a picture of a guy together and decided for a moment didn’t you!

Eli is responding to a lot of chatter about Sandals Grande closing in Antigua. This is a big deal it doesn’t appear to be for just refurbishment though no one is entirely clear on why it is either and that in an online world is dangerous. If you don’t say why the internet decides for you in opinion- FAKE NEWS hello! You need to come out spokesmen and be clear on why you are doing something.
In short Eli has a brilliant take on it and you should watch if you are interested in tourism not just Antigua tourism he speaks a lot of sense.

Your Caribbean Property Dream | Luxury Antigua Property


There are a lot of islands in the Caribbean and they fall into 4 flavours mostly and then they are all of course unique. The 5 flavours in no particular order are English, French, Spanish, U.S. and Dutch.
If you were to pick 2 English islands you might take the Turks and Caicos and Antigua, 2 French- Guadeloupe and St Martin. US islands like the United States Virgin Islands or the dry Dutch ABC’s Aruba Bonaire and Curacao and the Latin countries who speak Spanish like Dominican Republic and Cuba.
That broad clarification is going to impact greatly your property buying decision. You will maybe already have some idea of a favourite island. Some represent great value as they may be deficient in infrastructure and have little tourism others are politically unique and we all watch Cuba intently. Others are too exclusive and expensive representing exclusivity like St Barts or the Turks and Caicos. Many islands have a great mix but there is one clear winner for me, Antigua. Buying property in Antigua is straightforward but it pays to have the experience of perhaps the best realtors on the island Luxury Property and Villas in Antigua. Make sure you call Antigua Estates!

Oh to just cruise around on a boat the whole of the Caribbean, well for some they do for a while but many settle for an island.

Antigua Property

Antigua has a lot going for it. A stable government modelled on the British Westminster system. A tourism industry and the island infrastructure are being heavily invested in (New Antigua Airport and Port) while at the same time the growth is controlled and measured. There are no ugly developments. You can find property at the lower end (under $300k USD) and plots of land ready to home your dream home. The properties go all the way up into million-dollar luxury beachside and ocean view villas you might expect in a bond film. Antigua is also well served by airlines from Canada the USA and Europe.
