Be sure and go to Shirley Heights on Sunday evening for the big BBQ and music party.

Don't go horseback riding anywhere except at the professional stable near Falmouth Harbor.

BoTours does a fabulous job.

Eat at least one dinner at the Home Restaurant.

HAVE FUN!

I suggest dickenson beach on the north coast. Go for lunch or maybe dinner at Miller's By The Sea - not far from St. Johns. You have got to go to Falmouth Harbour and see some of the best yachts in the world. We sat on the dock and just listened to the private steel bands playing for the royalty as they feasted on their boat - with the full moon shining and the music playing- - i could have sworn i was in paradise

I am looking into Antigua and have looked into The Siboney as well. Would love to hear your reactions to this resort during/after your stay there. Please get back to me at some point, SOON!
Thanks!

I will definitely post a trip report upon my return. I still can't believe I'm going since we just planned this trip 2 days ago!

Marta, I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but if I were you I would
cancel Siboney & book somewhere else.
Siboney has a very interesting restaurant at water's egde but the accomodations are basic at best,
cramped and unattractive at worst. We had planned to stay there a couple of years ago but checked out after one night b/c we hated the place! There is virtually no beach in front of Siboney.
You have to go farther north on Dickenson Bay to have beachfront. The pool at Siboney was so gross & dirty that our 4 year old wouldn't go near it! We drove all ovet the island in a taxi looking for alternate accomodation but almost everything was fully booked. I am sure that if you check around you will find something that is a lot nicer than Siboney! In the end, you will have a great holiday...the sunsets on Dickenson
Bay are spectacular!
