has anyone been to both? I have but I honestly can't remember Antigua as well as I remember Aruba. Plus I went to Antigua with my father and Aruba with my husband, so different experiences...Anyways, is the water in Antigua as clear as I remember it being in Aruba? Are there fun day trip to take yourself in Antigua? We only left the resort (Jolly Harbour) once to go shopping in St. John. In Aruba my DH and I really enjoyed renting a car and driving around to check out the island ourselves. Is that something that is enjoyable in Antigua as well?
I am considering Antigua for next vacation and showed my DH some pictures online but he thinks the water looks cloudy compared to Aruba.
