One of the most popular islands in the Caribbean, Barbados has miles of fine white sand with towering palms and turquoise waters.
Away from the beach are hills with stunning plantation houses and tropical vegetation, not to mention the fields of sugar cane used extensively for locally produced rum. There are ample opportunities to play tennis, explore the island on foot and even play golf on one of several courses of international standing. For those who prefer to spectate, Barbados has a racecourse and is home to the Kensington Oval – a must for cricket fans. The parish of St.Peter is also home to the Wildlife Reserve and is one of the best places to see the Barbados Green Monkey in its natural environment.
Currency: Barbados Dollars (US. Dollars are also readily accepted in many establishments).
Banking: Full banking facilities are readily available on the island, with ATMs.
Motto: “Pride and Industry”.
