Wonderful Vacation Houses For Rent Around The World
This pear shaped island with gently rolling hills is 21 miles
long and is 100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles Island chain
that arcs from the Virgin Islands to Trinidad. Because of the
very successful sugar cane business (in the 18th century 26
forts guarded the 21 miles of coastline), the island has
marvelous old plantations and mysterious ruins to explore.
Barbados is also a wonderful mix of British tradition and
Caribbean style. Bajans still loves cricket, rugby, afternoon
tea and polo. And while people tend to dress for dinner in many
restaurants and hotels, Barbados is hardly stuffy. Bars and
nightclubs dot the island, serving of course, the favorite local
rum, Mount Gay.
