      About this St. John's tour

      Christopher Columbus may have "discovered" Antigua in 1493, but it was the Brits who were the first Europeans to settle on the island. Sir Christopher Codrington made Antigua Britain's "Gateway to the Caribbean" in 1632, taking advantage of its natural resources – particularly sugar – to make it a profitable colony for the Crown.

      It's not difficult imagining Codrington and his compatriots exploring Antigua and getting lost in its beauty. Nor would it be a stretch to picture them living off the bountiful fruits and vegetables that grow there. You could live quite well off the mangoes, pineapples, bananas, passion fruit, cashews, and other edible plants found in the rainforest. It's a veritable buffet. Of course, driving through Antigua's only tropical rainforest in a 4x4 would make it a drive-thru.

      But the real fruits of this trip are the views you will see as you blaze past Body Ponds on your way to Wallings Dam.  Built around the turn of the last century, the water it holds has created a lush and tranquil paradise in the mountains of Antigua.  So soak it all in before you head to down to Morris Bay for some other kind of soaking.  It will all make you much more jolly before you head back to the ship. 

      The sour legacy that built Antigua

      When Christopher Codrington settled on Antigua, he brought the latest sugar-growing technology and created the island's first large-scale sugar plantation. Tobacco planters soon switched to sugar, but needed more laborers to work the fields. After locals succumbed by the thousands to disease or hardship, the colonists began importing slaves from Africa, and sugar became the engine of the island's economy.
