Bridgetown, BB11000, Barbados

Barbados is the most easterly island in the chain of Caribbean islands.   The island enjoys a mild and pleasant tropical climate all year  round. 

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine yearly, the weather is almost always sunny and warm, cooled by the constant northeast trade winds. The average daytime temperature ranges between 84–88 degrees Fahrenheit, 29–31 degrees Celsius. Summer temperatures rarely exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius).

Barbados is surrounded by white  sandy beaches and has an excellent infrastructure with an extensive network of  surfaced roads and a good internal and external telecommunication system,  including internet access. There are  also good airport and seaport facilities with daily connections to countries  of North and South America, Europe and most Caribbean  countries.  The country maintains a high  standard of health care which is easily accessible to all.  The main hospital is the Queen Elizabeth   Hospital, and there are a  number of Polyclinics which also provide free secondary health care. 

Barbados is both a solace for relaxation and a virtual mecca for  active lifestyles and cultural pursuits. Far beyond stretches of sublime beach,  our warm hospitality extends to splendid cultural events, sporting activities  and historic attractions.
