    Not really a trap, but when calling home don't buy a telephone card just to be able to say a half sentence. Just dial 0 to the operator and they'll guide you to make a collect call.
    Took me a week to understand that local calls are free. So just pick any phone.

    Crane Beach - Said to be one of the most beautiful places in the world but, I didn't think so. Very nice but, the public access was closed and you had to go through the resort to get to the beach which meant paying. You got the money back in the form of a free soft drink at the bar. Nice place but, Barbados has much better and there was nothing else in the area to look at.

    Harbour Master - Tour 'boat'...

    Harbour Master - Tour 'boat' with three floors (the bottom floor is underwater and provides the fish with something to look at). Such a big boat can only berth at specific places and these are well known to the locals. The sheer size of the boat and the number of people it could get on board puts me off.

    I wouldn't stay in Sam Lord's Castle. It is not near anything else and is on the rough, windy, wavy eastern side of the island. I suppose it is okay if you just want to stay in one place and not go anywhere for dining oir sightseeing, but that's not my idea of a good vacation.

    There are MANY beach vendors selling sarongs, necklaces, Bajan 'art' and other things ... including dope (Ganja) or other drugs. By all means, buy what you like and spend what you want but they are a bit of a rip off but can save you going to the shops! Remember that buying drugs (this is not a lecture ... use what you want) increases demand to use local fields and resources for drug plants rather than natural flora. This damages the eco-system and can lead to destruction of natural habitats for local animals and people too!

    caves are wack

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the trip is so long yet when you get there it is so short. They do not show you all of the cave either. I've seen better elsewhere

    Unique Suggestions: notice the scenery on your way there.

    Fun Alternatives: Go to the beach

    Animal flower cave. This is a cave with some very small fossils in it not worth paying for it. This is from inside the cave which is located at the most Northern point of the island.

    The Nature Reserve is good if you have small children. Otherwise it's not worth the effort to get there. There's only a few types of animals.

    Jolly Roger - Great for what it is. A trip out to sea with as much cheap beer and rum as you can drink, crowded to the rafters, loud music and a paper pirates hat.
