Barbados - All Inclusive

What first comes to mind when one thinks of Barbados is the beautiful sun-drenched palm-adorned beaches and translucent azure waters. However the island offers much more, in both local culture and scenic beauty.

Rich in history and culture, this small island has its own distinctive identity, passionately expressed through its local customs, traditions, art, lively music and exceptional cuisine. As the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” Barbados brings together the influences of African, Caribbean, West Indian and European delights to create a unique culinary experience. Of course fish is a mainstay, including Flying Fish - a national symbol of Barbados.

Sightseeing on the island is a pleasure with many unique natural phenomena, historic UNESCO World Heritage sites and rich cultural attractions, but it is the friendliness of the people that will leave a lasting impression.

Our hotel during our stay is The Barbados Beach Club - a great-value, moderate All-Inclusive resort located on the south coast in laidback Maxwell Gap. The hotel is ideally situated on the beachfront, steps away from the inviting white sands and turquoise sea. You may prefer to lounge by the beachfront poolside with a rum punch in hand. This is also the spot for an early morning dip or or to join a water aerobics class. Enjoy the water toys such as kayaks, paddle boats and snorkeling equipment - available onsite and included in your All-Inclusive stay. Within walking distance or a short taxi ride away is bustling St. Lawrence Gap with its many restaurants including karaoke venues, sports bars and classic old rum shops.

3 meals daily, afternoon tea and unlimited beverages (soft drinks, juice, beer, wine, local spirits, cocktails and smoothies) are all included during your stay. At the hotel you can choose from two on-site restaurants offering an array of local and international cuisine throughout the day. There is local entertainment during the evenings.

Hotel guestrooms are simply furnished and include individual air conditioning, safe, mini-fridge, complimentary WiFi and private balcony.

1. Island Tour

This tour, which takes us all around the island, begins with a visit to Oistins - once a major seaport and now home to one of the world’s best open-air parties. Then we visit the historic capital, Bridgetown, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, where we see the 19th century Parliament Buildings and a synagogue (with attached museum) built in 1654 (one of the oldest Synagogues in the Western Hemisphere). On the West Coast we’ll stop in Holetown - the landing site of the first British settlers in 1627. On the rugged east coast we’ll see the roaring waves pounding the shore, carving out natural pools in the coral. Lunch is included at a scenic spot on the east coast.

2. Gardens and Abbey Tour

We first visit the important historical site of St. Nicholas Abbey Great House and Distillery. Built almost 350 years ago, this sugar plantation is well maintained and has retained its architectural beauty. The distillery here produces award-winning rums, and our local guide will educate us on the history and rum making process at the Abbey. We will take a ride on a steam locomotive through the plantation fields and mahogany woods, ending with a breathtaking view from Cherry Tree Hill of the rugged East Coast and Scotland District. Our last stop will be at the Flower Forest Botanical Gardens, 53 acres of tropical trees and flowering plants which bloom year-round.

3. Caves and Critters

Our first visit is the geological wonder of Harrison’s Cave. We’ll board the electric trams and travel underground to discover the stalactites and stalagmites in their quirky formations, naturally flowing waterfalls and crystal-clear pools. We then visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve and stroll through the four acres of forest, looking out for the famous Barbadian Green Monkey, deer, tortoise and beautiful peacocks roaming the grounds. The aviary here features briliantly coloured parrots and macaws.

4. Catamaran Cruise

We enjoy a scenic catamaran cruise along the stunning coast of Barbados. There will be several stops for a chance to swim in a tranquil secluded bay, snorkel at a sunken shipwreck and an opportunity to see the incredible sea turtles that inhabit these waters! An on-board lunch of local specialties and drinks is included.
