Where would you rather spend your vacation? Inside a hotel room where the rates are probably burning holes in your pockets? Or in a spacious villa for long term rental in Antigua?
These days, people are looking for alternatives in order to get the most out of their vacation. Sure, all inclusive resorts can be great value for a Caribbean vacation, but in more laidback islands like Antigua and Barbuda, you can't find those anywhere. Your only option, therefore, is to stay in some cramped space (if you're on budget) or spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to stay in a hotel with a minimum number of amenities.
There isn't much choice in there, right? Or is there?
