My wife and I have our first trip to Anguilla coming up quickly now and I could use a few pointers. Hope some of you might be able to share your insight!
First, we're going to be arriving mid-afternoon on Saturday May 7th. When we visited Barbados a couple years ago we happened to be arriving on National Heroes day in that country. This left us scavenging a bit for resources since we were self catering. We ended up resorting to picking up snacks and drinks at a petrol station to get us through day one.
We're self catering in Anguilla so my two part question is, should we expect any issues around 4:00 Saturday May 7th as we attempt to stock our condo when we arrive?
Secondly, can you suggest somewhere we should go relatively near the Turtles' Nest Condos or the Meads Bay area in general? We'll have a rental vehicle awaiting our arrival but after a long flight to St Maarten and a ride to our condo any time saved by knowing where to go ahead of time would be a great help!
Also, concerning that taxi ride to our condo, should we expect that our driver will accept American dollars? Or should I be prepared with some local currency on hand before we arrive?
Thanks a ton! I'm sure you'll hear more from us as these last couple weeks roll by!
