Antigua has been a favorite of sailors ever since Columbus’ day.

Posted on January 17th, 2013

So close to South America that you might even see it from the island’s southeast coast, Aruba lies safely south of the hurricane belt, so it’s a tropical island you visit in late-summer and fall without getting midnight phone calls from anxious relatives.
