    April showers brings May flowers, and baskets of suntan lotion and English Harbour Sherry Cask rum. All you must do is book a flight and catch a tailwind down to Antigua and Barbuda.

    April brings Sailing Week (April 30-May 8), 80-degree days, 366 beaches, and fantastic resorts with a wide range of beach and water activities.

    So, what might your sun and surf itinerary look like?
    Sun lounger. Paperback. Relaxation.

    And then...
    Swim solo, or swim with the stingrays. Go horseback riding. Charter a fishing boat and try your luck
    reeling in mahi-mahi, king fish, or tuna.

    Kayaking and paddle boarding provide a great opportunity to explore Antigua and Barbuda's mangroves and waterways. Keep your eyes peeled for West Indian Whistling ducks, Caribbean Coots, and other waterbirds.

    Featuring over 100 miles of coastline, the twin-island paradise is an ideal place to snorkel and dive. There are several easily accessible coral reefs to explore (Cadres Reef is a popular site for beginners) as well as 122 documented sunken ships offshore. If you're a Mel Fisher, treasure hunting sort of holidaymaker, then don't miss the Andes shipwreck. It's located off the beach of Deep Bay.

    Or perhaps you're the type who wants a challenge. A hike up Antigua's Boggy Peak (aka Mount Obama) is the answer. Or, if your sense of challenge and adventure boarders on a Free Solo-need for adrenaline, then tackle the five-peak challenge: hike to the highest points on Antigua.

    A different kind of challenge, maybe? How about a trip to Nobody Knows, Hammock Cove resort's signature rum bar? It’s there where you'll find a diverse selection of the Caribbean's best rums: Havana Club, Abuelo, Mount Gay, El Dorado and English Harbour, to name a few.

    And if you need a space that's not in the sun or water (but less prone to causing dry mouth and a headache), there's always pickleball. Yes, Antigua has officially been crowned the Caribbean Capital of Pickleball.

    Whether you book now for now or buy for later, now is the time to save. There are great deals (air + resort) for romantic, family, or multi-generational stays. Plan now for Mother's Day. Visit
