The Barbados guide

Latest articles

Barbados is the quintessential Caribbean island. A warm tropical climate is tempered by trade winds that blow in from off the Atlantic, and miles of sun kissed beaches surround this paradise on earth. The golden sands of the beaches give way to inland areas which are dotted by sugarcane plantations and tropical forests. A land of diversity, this island may be small in area but large on hospitality.

Barbados is a Commonwealth state in the Caribbean, which gained its independence from Great Britain in 1966.
