We are an American couple in our late 30s looking for a tropical destination with a great nightlife. We really enjoyed Aruba, St Martin, Cabo, Key West, Atlantis in the Bahamas etc and are looking for something similar. We don't like to keep going back to the same places so we're looking for something similar, but different. I love boutique shopping, but I know that's uncommon in the Caribbean. We basically want to know if Barbados has a good nightlife and great food and where we should stay. What are some of the nicer places near the action (if there's action). We also love to gamble, but I'm not sure if Barbados has casinos or not yet. We love a good piano bar, live music, karaoke, DJs but doing the day we like to lounge around and relax. Our needs are pretty basic since we don't do too many excursions. Is Barbados a good choice or can you suggest another island? We're planning to come in late March or early April. Should we rent a car? Any tips would be great!!!
