A New Way to Explore Antigua

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 13, 2021

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has launched a new mobile app to help travelers discover the destination. 

It’s called Explore Antigua, and it’s joined by a new interactive map for tourists. 

The free app, developed by Hashtag Communications, features hotels, restaurants, bars and other popular attractions on the islands. 

It will also include all ports of entry, car rental companies and other locations, with easy access via a QR code scan. 

 “The Covid-19 pandemic called for our tourism sector stakeholders to quickly adapt their business, and make the most of digital technology in order to safely communicate their messages to travelers,” said Colin James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority. “We congratulate Hashtag Communications on the development of this app, which will impact the way travelers navigate the country now and post pandemic.”

Antigua reopened for tourism in June 2020, and has seen a steady climb in tourism arrivals in the last seven months.
