Antigua... The Gateway To Tropical Paridise

Since that faithful journey of discovery by Christopher Columbus of a place called Antigua, named after the Spanish icon, Santa Maria de la Antigua, visitors have flocked to its shores in their thousands. History has it that it was Columbus, who discovered this beautiful island, but I beg to differ, you cannot discover something that someone else knows about, surely the inhabitants of the Island knew their land and what a gem it was. However Mr. Columbus was sent on a voyage to discover the best holiday hotspots, and alas! He stumbled across this Pearl of a Caribbean Island the place where residents of the northern hemisphere regularly pilgrimage to have their holiday to escape the inclement weather. Antigua and Barbuda are islands in the West Indies in the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean region. I would describe it as the gateway to paradise, no matter where you go in Antigua, you  won't be far from beautiful Beaches, good accommodation, and a fascinating history
