    Island Safari

    by duet62 Written Jul 10, 2006

    This is a tour of the island which is fantastic if you dont hire a mote. It is not for the faint hearted though and if you have back or heart problems would suggest something other than this. They take you all across the island which takes all day on road and off road. The guides are brilliant and really take care of you ;.............by filling your glass with rum punch and then taking you on the bumpy off road ride..........be prepared wear appropriate clothing and shoes not flip flops. The tour guides have funny names....ours was TAZ and was competing with others to get into the lead ( they always put safety first though)

    Great experience a must, your will see a fantistic views

    The Catamaran Trip

    by duet62 Written Jul 10, 2006

    The trip on the Cat is fantastic, you spend most of the day on it and it sails the length of the island. You stop and do so snorkelling which is fantastic, got to swim with the turtles and various fish.........what an experience. The crew are brilliant and treat you really well, always filling your glass or plate. The views from this is fantastic so take a camera and a waterproof one too.

    Keep cool

    by duet62 Written Jul 10, 2006

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather is very humid.........dress appropriatley light like linen or cotton, even at night it is cooler but still very humid

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Do not bother trying to take straightners, the humidity just turn your hair wavey. Also nail varnish is really hard to put on unless you do it in the fridge but still takes forever, get them done before you go

    Hi I am a single Mum taking her 2 children to Barbados for a 2 week holiday next week. Can you tell me if there any night time shows or activities that is suitable and safe for us to go to as although I do not want to go to bars I do not want to spend every night in the hotel room. There is no night time entertainment in my hotel. Any advice welcome on any part of the staying safe and having fun! Thanks.
