Barbados Tries To Sell You On Its Five Big Festivals For 2010

Jaunted: "As the year comes to a close and you start thinking about vacations for 2010, the Barbados Tourism Authority wants travelers to know that Barbados isn't just a Caribbean beach destination. Sure, the sand and ocean make for sexy scenery, but the island doesn't want to rest on its beauty. The Tourism Authority released a schedule of events for '10 to show it's got some substance, or at least some cool festivals and events."

Barbados: Something for Everyone!

..::Black PR Wire, Inc.: "The people of Barbados, who’ve nicknamed themselves “Bajans,” are predominantly of African descent and speak English as the official language. There are other ethnic groups as well, including British, Celtic, Asian and Middle Eastern Bajans.

If sunny beaches aren’t your thing, maybe you’d prefer the underground scene… literally. Harrison’s Cave in St. Thomas Parish is a natural subterranean cave where visitors can see stalactites, stalagmites, pools and waterfalls. An electric tram ride gives visitors an up-close view of these unique passages of rock formations."
