1st time to Barbados

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have been vacationing in the Caribbean for the last 30 years. We have been to Grenada for the last 7 years and thought we would try a new destination this year. Then the hurricanes hit eliminating a number of potential destinations. We are not interested in Mexico or the Dominican Republic.

I have started to research Barbados. From what I have read the West coast may be best for the calmer waters we like but the South coast seems to have a number of positive reviews too. The hotels I have reviewed on the West coast seem awfully expensive for what we would need. We are not interested in all-inclusive resorts.

We will be travelling from Ottawa through Toronto. We would prefer accommodation with a kitchenette. We'd like to be on the beach within walking distance of town so we can venture out for meals and such. I'd prefer not to exceed $250 US/night.

Any suggestions for tours or sites of interest would also be appreciated.
