Great trip to Barbuda on the Barbuda express. Very friendly staff, great vibes. A bit of a bumpy ride as the ocean was wavy but still nice. In Barbuda there are donkeys on the street, they are everywhere and they are super cute.

The sea was a little bit choppy on the day we went but this turned out to our advantage, as there were only three of us on the tour. The trip to Barbuda takes an hour and a half and wasn't the most comfortable but...More

You can take a taxi from the hotel to the dock, it's about a 20 minute ride.
