Barbuda: there are at least three or four new hotel projects heading to this island and eight cruise ship calls will be made in Barbuda this year – the most it has ever received. This Caribbean island that has not conquered the tourism infrastructure and is still an “island experience”. Watch for some smaller planes, possibly a smaller, local airport to be built. Wouldn’t one small airport in Barbuda go well with one small airport in Antigua and add shuttles between them? Make a wish! Water Island: is the fourth official and most recently acquired island in the USVI.
