This drive along this road through the rain forest is awesome, the road is a little bumpy and are all the roads in Antigua, however they are all do-able, but this one is a must!!!!

If you are in Antigua, make the time to take Fig Tree Drive; it is truly a must-see/do. The scenery is spectacular as you drive through the rainforest and alongst the coast. Quick fact, figs are SMALL BANANAS so dont panic if you dont see fig trees

In Antigua 'fig' means banana which was slightly confusing at the start. We enjoyed trying to spot all of the trees although it was difficult as the road winds a bit.
