Transportation to a resort from airport

I am flying into Antigua for my wedding/honeymoon. Only my fiance and I will be transported at that time. Do you have any recommendations of ways to get transported from the airport to Grand Pineapple Beach resort? Most cost effective? Most visually pleasing?

mostly likely you'll be going by taxi, it's going to be the cost effective and gives you a chance to see the island, your probably looking at a 30 minute ride max, relax and enjoy the sights

We've been to many Caribbean islands, all with a different way of working. This thread really helped me understand how it works in Antigua:


Good luck, and have a great weddingmoon.

I think there are three ways for you to get from the airport:

Go to the taxi dispatcher as you leave the customs hall, she will allocate you a taxi (minivan) and hand you a paper with the cost. You pay the driver on arrival at GPB. You may have to share the taxi with others going to the same hotel. This is often a great way to meet people.

Arrange a limo/taxi service to pick you up

Hire a car from the airport if you are going to hire one for the duration of your stay you can pick one up just outside the customs hall.

Hope this helps
