Easy to get from the airport to city center on the local bus for those who prefer to. One is not bombarded by time share salesmen which is a nice relief. The cost of living on Barbados is high even tho' the currency is 2 for 1. Shopping by the pier is OK altho touristy. The city shops are a good walk away, but most of the walk is by the ocean on a nice path in the shade.
The sand is nice and white..the sea a beautiful shade of blue. English is spoken so getting anything is easy. There are many banks so getting cash from a bank ATM is easy.
This was a 4 hour stop but there was not much to do here. We walked to the town, basically just took a look around and walked back. There were some planned trips to a park and a waterfall but we did not sign up.
This was a beautiful little Island...WE had heard this was the Island for model ship building so we set out to find the shops. We found 3 and yes , they do wonderful work. We watched and got a few tips on the kind of wood they use and the tools. Then we met the man that paints them. Since my husband is a wood carver this stop was particularly rewarding.
