Antigua and Barbuda is composed of two islands in the northeastern end of the Lesser Antilles. Antigua is the larger of the two islands and sits about 50 kilometers to the south of Barbuda.
Away from the beach and Mount Obama, there are plenty of great spots for horseback riding on the two islands.
Among the many other options is riding from St John’s the capital, up the coast to Fort James. Along with taking in the gorgeous views, learn a bit more about the island’s rich and colorful history.
From here, it is also possible to continue riding north until you arrive at Runaway beach. Cool off in the Caribbean after a hot afternoon of riding and make your way back to St John’s as the sunsets over the sea. What could be better?
During the winter and spring, average daily temperatures in Antigua and Barbuda range from 25 °C to 30 °C (77 °F to 86 °F). From January to April, Antigua and Barbuda is mostly dry with low humidity.
Any trip to Antigua and Barbuda begins with a flight into V. C. Bird International Airport (ANU), in St John’s on Antigua. Most guides will meet you here or in the capital, which is easily reached by bus from the airport.
