: Originally a celebration of emancipation, the carnival in Antigua and Barbuda has become one of the best in the Caribbean. This beautiful celebration is worth experiencing on your own. Filled with typical dances, colorful dresses and traditional music, the carnival consists of two main parades. The first one is the children’s carnival parade where children of all ages dress in colorful outfits and do modern and traditional dance choreographies. Then there is the adult carnival where you can see lots of beautiful dancers and listen to great music (calypso and zouk) played with steel drums, a traditional instrument for the islands.
Come and visit Antigua and Barbuda, a group of beautiful islands surrounded by crystal blue waters and 365 white sandy beaches! Come visit the Frigate bird Sanctuary in Barbuda, The Obama Mountain, Taste the black pineapple in Antigua, rest and meet their friendly local people!
