Bummed Out on Barbados

Never let it be said that you can please all the people all of the time...but you certainly can please some of the people some of the time

Tampa Exotic Travel Examiner: "While I wouldn’t recommend Barbados for travelers on a budget or as a one-day wonder, its west-coast resorts are great for an extended stay. The pink- and white-sand beaches are world class, and most hotels offer outstanding cuisine with top-notch (and expensive) restaurants available via cab on a reservation basis. My wife Kelly and I stayed for three nights at the lovely Treasure Beach Hotel (www.treasurebeachhotel.com) about two years ago. Our villa faced a pool shaded by gorgeous trees, and only a few feet beyond the beach and Caribbean Sea. During our stay we enjoyed golf, fishing and trying new cuisine such as a flying fish sandwich (I didn’t like it).

By all means consider Barbados in a Caribbean itinerary, but I’d pass unless it’s part of a package deal that includes a few more interesting locations (like St. Thomas and Antigua)."

One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'. In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections; The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los B
