Your vacation in Barbados – Five Do’s and Five Don’ts


The Englishman is on a plane approaching Barbados; goes on vacation to an island paradise. As the plane approaches the island, the Englishman looks out the window. And look, glistening in the clear aquarium Caribbean Sea around Barbados, the wedding ring he lost last year.

It’s an urban myth, but who knows? Sea around Barbados is incredibly and brilliantly clear. You will see for yourself when you visit. And when you do, please watch out for these actions and not:

Don’t underestimate yourself The price dispute is not part of Barbadian culture. Pay the price the seller asks for or does not buy. Also, ask the price of a taxi ride before getting into a taxi – then accept the price or take a bus.

Do not drive on the right side of the road We ride like Bits: on the left. This means the steering wheel is on the right and, if you have a manual transmission, you will be driving with your left hand. It’s a little practice of tapping your head rubbing your belly until you get used to it.

Don’t go to the beaches at night This applies to any beach anywhere in the world. The crime rate in Barbados is low, but make sense.

Don’t drink too much rum Rum is a religion in Barbados; in fact, Barbados is believed to be the place where rum was first developed. The problem is that rum goes down easily, especially in the ubiquitous island drink, rum punch. So while you enjoy your exaltation, keep in mind that it exists rum in that blow.

Do not stay in a hotel if it is raining Even during the rainy season of Barbados in the fall, the island very rarely rains. And the hurricane hasn’t been seen since 1955. So the chances of great weather are huge. Still, if it rains, plan indoor activities like a visit to George Washington’s house (yes, George Washington lived in Barbados for a short time) or a tour of the Mount Gay rum factory.

Eat flying fish Flying fish is for Barbados what salmon is for Alaska. You will find flying fish fried, grilled, prepared with Creole sauce and placed in sandwiches (called “cutters”). Be sure to head to Oistins, on the south coast, on Friday night: freshly caught flying fish is cooking on the beach, music is playing, and parents and children are having a great time.

Go on a catamaran cruise This is the best way to experience the Caribbean Sea, see the famous platinum coast of Barbados and swim with our gentle giant sea turtles.

Do Swim! But know where you can and where you can’t. Dive into the sea anywhere along the west coast of Barbados where the Caribbean Sea lures with clear, gentle water. And most of the south coast offers beautiful swimming. Yes it is not swim along the east coast of the island, where the Atlantic Ocean is flooded

If you cover the street vendors in St. Lawrence Gapu The salespeople are kind and relaxed, but they take their business seriously; many have been selling along St. Louis for ten years or more. Lawrence Gapa.

Bring your family Barbados is not just for couples on their honeymoon, although we have a lot of lovers. The island is also a fantastic place for a family vacation, with mild sea that has no sharks or sea creatures and lots of land activities. In fact, take the Island Safari with all-wheel drive – kids love it! Children of all ages, that’s ….
