  • Another beautiful spot in Antigua. Top of the mountain, great music ๐ŸŽถ and cold drinks. Its $10 US admission fee per person. Then you can enjoy the stunning views of the English harbor and Nelson stockyards, while you have some delicious BBQ'd jerked chicken or burgers, hot dogs or ribs. We tried the chicken ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ— and ribs and it was fantastic. Definitely worth the short drive.
  • A must do in Antigua. I think is the most touristic place all over the island, but is definitely worth it. Either you can book in advance or do walk in entrance (10USD). Live music on Sunday evening. There is a bar and a restaurant inside from where you can order drinks and food (which are not included in the ticket hence you have to pay for them). Amazing views and music! Well done to the bands and the singers.
