The Mrs and I are considering Barbados for a winter vacation. Rough dates are 19-27 December. Christmas in the Caribbean!!
We're not total tightwads but would definitely like to get the best hotel we can for our money. We'd very much like something on or near the beach. Perhaps not the cheapest hotel there is, but reasonably priced. I realize that we're travelling at probably the peak of the season.
Doing a little research on the island, it seems the best places to stay are either South or West coast.
Are there any particular towns/hotels recommended? Any advice on vehicle rental?
Our budget is semi flexible - but $3500 to include airfare is where we'd like to stay close to.
Thank you all for your help in advance and for your time.
Approx. $3000 to include airfare if possible.
