Barbados is a hot destination among tourists for more reasons than just beautiful beaches, great people and duty-free shopping! Here’s a quick guide on how to make the most of your Caribbean holiday.
Day 1: Explore
What better way to start off your Caribbean escapade with the Best of Barbados Tour? Journey through Harrison’s Cave to the island’s rolling green hills and get treated to the beautiful landscapes and sights that make Barbados a perfect holiday destination. After a quick local lunch, continue on to the wildlife reserve where you’ll have a chance to see and feed the island’s famous green tail monkeys. Finish the day with a relaxing sail down the crystal waters of the west coast where you can snorkel with native green sea turtles and explore colorful coral reefs and shipwrecks.
Day 2: Cultural Extravaganza
Immerse yourself in Barbadian culture on the Just BIM Tour. Your tour begins at a local pottery shop where you learn about the many arts and crafts unique to Barbados. Next, walk though the tropical splendor of Flower Forest before embarking on a scenic drive ending at Bathsheba. After an exciting lunch, the tour continues to historical stops like the plantation at St. Nicholas Abbey (which maybe the last authentic 17th century house in North America) and the six-acre Andromeda Botanical Gardens, home to over 600 different species of flora.
Day 3: Sun, Sand, Sea…
On your third day in Barbados it’s time to venture into the water! Experience the mystery of the deep seas from the comfort of the Atlantis Submarine Expedition. The submarine descends up to 150 feet under water to reveal mystifying corals, marine life and shipwrecks as your knowledgeable pilot narrates tales of days gone by. Spend the evening relaxing on Brandons beach on the outskirts of Bridgetown where you can watch the sun melt into the turquoise seas or even tour the local rum factory.
