You can now listen to Antigua News articles!
Antigua and Barbuda has been recognized as one of the most secure and highly sought-after destinations for Caribbean travelers.
The United States government has recently warned its residents to reconsider traveling to Jamaica, a popular destination for spring breakers.
However, if you are looking for a tropical Caribbean getaway, plenty of options remain available. Despite the government’s warning, Jamaica is just one of many beautiful islands in the Caribbean that you can choose from.
The Bahamas is also included in the list of countries where the government advises travelers to exercise increased caution, often due to crime.
However, it is important to remember that these Caribbean islands fall under the government’s “level one” travel advisory, meaning that travelers are only encouraged to exercise the normal cautions they would take on any trip.
In other words, while it’s always important to be aware of your surroundings and take precautions when traveling, you can still enjoy a safe and enjoyable trip to the Caribbean. So if you’re in need of some sun, sand, and relaxation, don’t let the government’s warning deter you from considering a trip to this beautiful region of the world
