Local Insights: Susan Coulton


When it comes to getting to know Anguilla’s must-see spots and local hangouts, it’s hard to beat the insight that a local can share with you.  We’re continuing our ‘Local Insights’ series by talking with our staff members individually to get their thoughts on the Frangipani, island secrets, must-try dining and favorite experiences. This week, we’re stepping outside of our on-site staff pool and chatting with Susan Coulton, our East Coast-based marketing rep who’s been enjoying all that Anguilla has to offer for over fifteen years. As a regular visitor, Susan’s sharing her thoughts and insight on making a trip to Anguilla spectacular.
