Shop Antigua: Our Guide To Souvenirs


Every vacation requires its souvenirs. Maybe something to take you instantly back to sunnier climes when you’re staring through a rainy window on a Monday morning. Or a substantial gift for that amazing relative who has dog-sat for you for two weeks.

Antigua is a wonderful place to visit.  It’s a treasure trove for take-home treats but sometimes those picks are hard to find. So our Visitor & Volunteer Coordinator, Susan is opening up the world behind those colourful Unseco heritage doors and bringing you our pick of the best.
