Renowned for its breath-taking beaches and secluded coves, the island of Antigua is home to a stunning coastline. There’s a temptation to spend all day basking in the sun and catching some rays, but this Caribbean island has so much more to offer. You can mix with the locals and visit some of Antigua’s charming villages, learning more about the island’s heritage and the rich history that lies beyond the sun loungers!
Unfortunately, there have been reported cases of holidaymakers contracting infections such as Hepatitis A and Typhoid after consuming contaminated food and water, which has then lead to severe dehydration.
It has also been known for holidaymakers to fall ill after being served contaminated water at all-inclusive hotels. In addition to this, cases of people being served food that hasn’t been cooked properly or has been kept in unsanitary conditions have been known and have been the cause of travellers’ diarrhoea.
Whilst popular, large, buffet-style restaurants in all-inclusive resorts can also be a problem as food is sometimes not stored at the correct temperature, is sometimes kept in unclean conditions and is sometimes exposed to cross-contamination.
