|Plug Types||A||A, B|
|Frequency of electrical current||60Hz||60Hz|
Mexico uses Plug Type A.
In Antigua there's more than one socket type in use.
You will need this adaptor:
Socket Type A
(Mexico) to Plug Type B
Antigua also uses Socket Type A, which is used in Mexico. If using an appliance that has a Type A Plug in the Type A Sockets of Antigua, you will not need an adaptor.
The voltages found in Mexico and Antigua are significantly different.
Some appliances are compatible with multiple voltages. To find out if your appliance is one of them, check the appliance label and/or instruction booklet.
Is your appliance compatible with the voltage used in Antigua (230V)?
If your appliance is not compatible with multiple voltages, you will need a transformer to adjust the voltage input when using your appliance in Antigua.
The frequency found in Mexico and Antigua is exactly the same (60Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
