Sorry, I know these questions usually annoy the regulars- but we are trying to decide between St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbados for a week next November....!
There is no doubt that St. Lucia looks by far the most stunning but living in Ireland, I know only too well that there's a reason for all the greenery - it's called rain! We went to the British Virgin Islands in September a couple of years ago and despite loving Tortola, did get rained out quite badly... so that is something we are trying to avoid this time, especially as we'll only have a week and the sunshine will have to get us through the UK/Irish winter!
Having looked at climate charts, Antigua looks a bit drier than the other two, is that correct?
In terms of things to do, apart from relaxing we always enjoy doing a day-trip or two - are there enough places to explore (historical towns, plantation houses, nature reserves etc.) in any of the three islands?
Otherwise, we like it nice and quiet - preferrably adults only - but I know that depends on the resort we pick (and avoiding any half-term and Thanksgiving holidays, of course). Antigua seems to offer more all-inclusive options than the other two, not a must at all but it obviously does help when trying to estimate the overall cost...
Any advice would be most appreciated!
