Ever wondered what England would be like with perpetual summers—Barbados is the answer.

Of all the Caribbean islands, Barbados has most retained the trappings of its colonial past. So entrenched is the English flair of the island that it is often called "Little England." Cavers will find a number of caves spread across the island to satisfy their appetite, with Harrison’s Cave being the best known. It is truly one of the world's natural wonders. The majestic stalagmites that adorn the cave’s floor are still growing. Barbadians take pride in their two baobab trees, which were apparently imported from Guinea, Africa, in 1738. One of the trees is in Queens Park, Bridgetown, and the other is on Warren’s Road, St. Michael; visitors are often seen trying to span its width -- it takes 15 adults joining with outstretched arms to cover its circumference. Nature tours allow visitors to get up close and personal to the island’s fauna and flora. A visit to Ocean Park promises to be an unforgettable experience, where the beauty of sea is displayed in all its glory.

  • Hi All, Just wanted to share my recent experience in Barbados. I have been to the Caribbean but most of the time i stayed in Big Resorts that would tell you what to do where to do it and when to eat and where to eat. This time i opted for a more laid back experience by Booking a Boutique Hotel. I arrived in Paynes bay ready to check into the St James Hotel and it turns out i wasn't the only one who was ready, the entire staff was there to greet me with a very friendly attitude and smiling faces. Let me just say The St James Hotel is a great value for your money, the rooms have evrything you need and then some (satelite TV, wifi, fully equipped kitchens ....etc) I managed to get a discount since the hotel is relatively unknown still! Overall it was a great experience that i would recommend to families with children, couples who want a romantic escape or even solo travelers such as myself.All the best on your travels, if you would like to look into the St James Hotel here is where i got started.
