A Tuk Tuk is a three-wheeled minitaxi nominally seating three passengers and a driver, it is a faster and cheaper way of transportation in Antigua (quite an adventure).  You can catch a Tuk Tuk at almost every corner. They cost approx Q15 to go anywhere within Antigua (about $2) but, make sure to agree the price with the driver before you board, and again, it’s OK to bargain.  Expect to pay little more, after dark and during the holidays.

Be advised that Tuk Tuks are not allowed to drive near Central Park, so you have to walk a couple of blocks to catch one. If the Central Park is your destination, they will leave you a couple of blocks away. Tuk-Tuks can be found anywhere from 3rd Ave/3rd Calle  and 6th  Ave / 6th  Calle).

Have a nice Trip!
