The Perfect Vacation in Barbados

I am always looking for a fun vacation spot to add to my list of places to visit. I have heard so many great things about the beautiful island of Barbados. There are gorgeous beaches, terrific weather and lively nightlife.

Barbados is in the eastern part of the Caribbean. The weather is pleasant most of the time with temperatures usually between 70 to 88 degrees year round. The dry season is from December to May and this tends to be the most popular season for tourists. Barbados sees more rainfall during the wet season from June to November. Earthquakes, hurricanes and landslides are rare, but can happen. As long as you are prepared, then you do not need to stress.

The official language is English and I hear the locals (called Barbadians) are super nice. The citizens of Barbados are known to be very friendly and always willing to show tourists the best spots to go. A famous celebrity that is a native to Barbados is Rihanna, so you may even run into her!

Sports are pretty popular in Barbados. Common sports on the island are cricket, polo, volleyball, basketball and horse racing. There is a lot more to do on the island besides sports. Tourists can go on submarine adventures, attend entertaining dinner shows or enjoy the rocking nightlife. Barbados is home to a lot of clubs and other great entertainment.

Of course, you cannot miss the breathtaking beaches. If you are looking for an intimate beach, Head to Ragged North Coast of Barbados. It has amazing panoramic views and private coves. If you are more into water sports, head on over to Sandy South Coast of Barbados. It is a great beach for surfing, boarding and windsurfing.

Barbados offers everything you need to have a complete, amazing vacation. From the gorgeous weather to the relaxing beaches, the island has it all. There is plenty to do for families or for a getaway with your friends. No matter what, Barbados is sure to be a great time.
