Tamarind on Barbados adds activities, menus, elegance

The Boston Globe: "

Take advantage of free water sports, including water skiing, most unusual for a resort that is not an all-inclusive.

Give the local fish a taste at 246 Restaurant, so named for the island area code.

Visit the new spa where they use things such as Bajan sea salt and Barbadian Moscovado brown sugar for treatments.

And if it rains, never stand under a machineel tree on the beach. This most poisonous of trees exudes a sap so strong it blisters skin. Native Carib Indians used it to poison their arrows and in 1521, Ponce de Leon died after being wounded by one during a Florida expedition.

But it doesn’t rain much in Barbados."
