Shopping in Barbados

Barbados bids a diverse experience. As a tax-free island, costs are usually 30 to 50 percent less than in Europe and North America. Customers must have their passport when buying from duty-free. Largely, the duty-free shops are great as are the shopping centers filled with goods and outstanding service. Head down to Broad Street in Bridgetown to find some of the best shops. Here you can purchase everything from designer dresses to gold and silver jewelry. Prevalent mementos contain native handicrafts, such as straw bags, batiks, paintings, rum, and woodwork. Area of expertise craft and gift shops can be found in Pelican Village, outside Bridgetown, as well as Holetown, Speightstown, and St Lawrence Gap. The Crane Village on the southeast shore is the newest premium shopping destination, which contains tax-free shops.

Bajan life

No stay in barbados is complete without trying the local food and there are a whole host of famous restaurants serving up some of the finest cuisines the Caribbean has to offer. You've got to try the national dish Cou Cou and Flying fish, a creamy blend of okra and cornmeal. But beware Caribbean dishes usually come packed with a punch of hot Bajan sauce leaving a delightful sizzle on your tastebuds! A great eatery enjoyed by locals and tourists alike is the famous Friday night Oistins fish fry. Sample the catch of the day and dance the evening away to the lilting beats of the Caribbean. this is a great place to mix with the friendly locals who are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Food and drink in Barbados

Eating out in Barbados is costlier compared to other Caribbean islands but nothing above or beyond what we'd expect here in the UK. There is an endless choice of food outlets, with everything from international gastronomy served in smooth, world-renowned bistros to street food found in the markets. A smoking prohibition in public places is imposed and anyone caught violating it might face a fine or imprisonment. Oddly, drinking and driving is still authorized.

When to Go to Barbados

Barbados wet period tracks from June through November, and the dry season is December through to May. The best time to visit Barbados is mid-December through to April, though it is particularly busy with tourists. Storms seldom knockout Barbados as it is located on the margin of most hurricane paths, but rain and storms can still be common throughout those months.

Transportation

Bajan's like the UK drive on the correct side of the road, on the left. The bus service is widespread and regular, inexpensive and fast if you are directed to anywhere on the key route, but a car is the best way to appreciate many of the remote wonders. There are also more than sufficient taxis to take you everywhere you want to go on the island for nominal prices.
