January 2023 is Wellness Month in Antigua and Barbuda 

From a beach workout, to a plant-based brunch in an herbal garden, to a meditative yoga experience in the countryside and hiking on a range of trails, the new Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month taking place right now showcases a spectrum of wellness experiences available in Antigua and Barbuda. 

“Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month aims to bring greater awareness to many of our destination’s wellness offerings,” says Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s Wellness Pillar Lead and Director of Tourism (Ag) Canada, Tameka Wharton.

Launching the Wellness Month, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority hosted an online mocktail-making session introducing online viewers to a refreshing pomegranate cocktail for those participating in ‘Dry January.’ You’ll find a recipe for Pomegranate Mocktail here. They have another mocktail session scheduled for Jan 30th  (Follow the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism social media pages for more info.)
