Breathtaking Views well worth a visit. Visited New Years Day so it was pretty quiet. Booked Scenic Antigua Tours which was excellent.

Great music, from steel band to rock music. The food and atmosphere excellent on a Sunday (party night). Get there early to get a seat. The views are really good.

Utterly gorgeous views. Unmissable. Really gives you a sense of perspective and history. A guide is not necessary.

We visited during the day and for the Sunday evening barbeque. The gift shop was open both times, but there were far more vendors Sunday evening. Sorry, but we missed seeing the museum.
