Pavilion information: Antigua and Barbuda is an archipelagic island nation at the northern end of the Eastern Caribbean archipelago, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Its total area is 443 Square kilometres (km²), consisting of two major inhabited islands Antigua and Barbuda, 43 km apart, as well as several smaller, uninhabited islands and low-elevation, coral reef islets known as Cays. The climate is tropical, and over the course of a typical year, ambient temperature varies from 23⁰Celsius (⁰C) to 31⁰C. Average precipitation is about 114 centimetres per year and the rainfall pattern varies considerably from the dry season (December-April) to the rainy season (June-November). The islands are generally low-lying, except for the south-western quadrant of Antigua. This is more mountainous terrain, rising to a peak of 402metres at Mount Obama (formerly Boggy Peak), the remnant of an extinct volcanic crater. The island of Barbuda is entirely low-lying. There are no permanent rivers any where in the country.
