Dario Item - SAFETY TIPS FOR TOURISTS IN ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA

  1. 1. SAFETY TIPS FOR TOURISTS IN ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA Frank Gallien Antigua and Barbuda is a peaceful country. It recorded only 8 cases of assault and 88 cases of robbery in 2018. It only recorded 4 cases of murder in 2019. It also recorded only 16 cases of murder in 2021. Crime rate is lower in Antigua and Barbuda when compared with crime rates in most other countries. For example, in 2019, Russia had a homicide rate of 5 in every 100,000 population while Antigua and Barbuda had a total of 3 homicide cases. Nevertheless, there's a need for tourists to adhere to some safety measures. We asked Dr. Dario Item, Permanent Representative of Antigua and Barbuda to the UNWTO, to provide us with some travel tips, here are a few: o Walking during the day is preferable to late-night walks as tourists will get to properly view the country and its inviting ambience during the day. o Tourists should get travel medical insurance when travelling to Antigua and Barbuda. This would cater for any urgent medical demands that may arise during the visit.
  2. 2. o Also, tourists can opt for group tours rather than solo tours. Group tours would allow bonding more with loved ones. Having a group tour is a good way to rekindle friendship. o Because of the country's tropical marine climate, the country may be hot during some periods of the year. However, all tourists have to do is to put on their hats and sunglasses. Any time of the year is fine to visit the country. Preferably, tourists can visit during the dry season, which is December-April. o Tourists should exercise proper hygienic attitude during their visit and should always dispose of dirt. Tourists should ensure carrying out the required medical tests before visiting the country. o Ambassador Dario Item told us furthermore that tourists should not take their travel documents or any other important documents to the beach. This is to avoid misplacing them. Rather, they can keep their documents in the provided secured box. o Whenever any tourist visits any beach, he or she should look out for flags denoting the safety of the beach for swimming. Tourists should also comply with directives given at the beach. Beaches in the country are however generally safe for swimming, says Ambassador Dario Item o Preferably, tourists should always use a licensed taxi in the country, and ensure to see the rate card before hopping in the taxi. o If a tourist will be visiting any of the isolated beaches, it's preferable to go on a group tour. o Tourists should ensure to drink plenty water and should carry enough water with them while on tour. o Ambassador Dario Item told us that tourists should avoid getting drunk, otherwise, they might become vulnerable and constitute nuisance. A tourist should not complain if he or she gets drunk at night in an isolated area and wakes up the next day maybe with his or her phone missing. o During their visit, tourists should comply with the rules and regulations of the country. Tourists should not involve in any form of homosexuality or any act that gives an impression of homosexuality. Also, tourists should not put on camouflage clothes in the country.
