Hi
Just found out that we will be going to Antigua instead of St Maarten because of the hurricane damage to St Maarten. Going on cruise Oct/17.

Have been to the island twice as a couple but this time taking our 9 year granddaughter. I don't think the stingrays would be for her but would love some other ideas.

I have rented a car just in case but am open to other ideas or ideas of where to go with the car rental.

Thanks Karen

Found the donkey sanctuary http://www.antiguaanimals.com/donkey/ I think that would be an interesting experience for her. Then on to Dockyard and then a beach maybe Pigeon Beach?

Anyone been to the donkey sanctuary? Thoughts

We have the same issue, but going in November with an 8 and 3 year old. I am booking with Lawrence of Antigua for an island tour and beach break. I asked him about stopping about the Donkey Sanctuary for the kids and he said it was not good. So I have not been, but from a person who lives there sayings its not good means something to me.
