Barbados Tourism

The Caribbean has its own flurry of islands, most exuding a relaxed vibe and an unaffected bonhomie for playing and partying. Barbados offers the extra facilities, the perfect resting place between the day you spend at the beach, the colourful party evening and the day after. There are rooms you can book, from the real cheap to the luxurious. Also note that the country is among the most developed ones in the Caribbean, so expect no gap in all the home requirements. There is no question of dearth here. 

Post colonization, the Spanish took over Barbados in the later period of the 15th century. The Portuguese did arrive at the island in 1536 but did not go for ownership. The English arrived by ship in 1624, and promptly took possession, turning it to a colony. By 1966, Barbados achieved its independence, and in the following years gradually became a preferred place for tourists.

Be it in administration, public communications or any public service mediums, English is the most preferred and official language. A variant of the language, Bajan is also widely spoken by the locals. About 95% of the total population are Christians, other religions followed include Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. Seafood is a major part of the country’s cuisine, apart from dessert. Fish & chips is a popular dish, so are fish dishes that feature swordfish, marlin, shark and kingfish.

Comparatively flat and a gem of the Atlantic Ocean, Barbados has two prime seasons, from the really wet rainy season to the dry summer season.
