trip report

we spent one week on the island.

as I like the caribbean calmer waters I chose to stay in the west coast(but I found on july that the south coast beaches were pretty calm).opted to stay in the Beach View hotel to do some self-catering.it was fantastic making some rum cocktails while enjoying the sea view from our roomy balcony.I may declare it is a real smart choice on the WC hotels.

transportation:first we tried the yellow buses enjoying the loud music,then we toured the north and east coast with sanjay(taxicabby),reliable and knowledgeable.then we hired a car

for three days(driving on the left hand side was much easier than I

inicially thought).the only downside was that I missed more sidewalks.

supermarkets:we went to jordans and super center both near our hotel.at SC we found better variety and bought delicious rotis.

restaurants and bars:we went to the cliff just to appreciate the

setting and atmosphere where we drank pina coladas.we enjoyed

a great dinner at the Beach House restaurant,went to Cutters, a cozy place,Shoreside bar for good rum punches and so on...

we snorkelled near the Beach View hotel and was amazing.

I do not want to annoy you extending too much this report.

I would like to express my gratitude to all TA members that provided

us a wealth of information.adorable holidays! cheers! David,Sao Paulo.

I'm really glad to see you had a great holiday here. Authorities here are working extremely hard to market Barbados in Brazil thanks to the GOL weekly service. Hopefully you'll spread the good news to your friends at home and encourage them to visit as well.

Yes, from Beach View you can walk to places such as Scarlet, Daphne's, Roti Den, Mr. Vic's etc. Others are just a short bus ride away in Holetown.
