Good morning dreamers! Back at it again! Here we are on another #traveltuesday…one of my favorite days. For some reason, it gets me thinking about “Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego”. NO idea why….but that’s how I feel about picking a place to write about. I might start just throwing a dart on the map of the world and see where it lands (hopefully I can actually get it on the map).
Anyways, enough for a morning rant. Today, I want to focus on Barbados. Yes, famous Rihanna is from there (and I’m sure some other people are as well), but this is one of my parents favorite spots. They love the culture, people, and of course, location. There is also TONS of things to do here…and I mean tons! What I love about this place is that there literally is an activity for anyone. If you want to do nothing and relax, stay at the hotel. If you want to float in the ocean, be my guest. If you want to explore, there are lots of places to explore. See what I mean?
So, where to stay? I recommend Crystal Cove Resort. Number one, it’s all inclusive (sorry not sorry but you can’t go wrong doing all inclusive). Yes, it’s a pretty penny worth, but come on, it’s vacation right? And with all inclusive, you don’t have to worry about food, drinks, or tips (hello open bar). Also not to mention, you can literally watch the waves crash from the pool, while sipping a cocktail. I’m in.
Like I mentioned earlier, there literally are so many things you can do here. First stop, Harrison’s Cave. Yes, it’s an actual cave. If you’re into adventure, exploring, and thrill seeking, this is definitely an option for you! You’ll enjoy the limestone caves all from a tram that takes you through them with a guide and story. As this is only an hour adventure, you’ll have plenty of time to lay by the pool and relax after.
Next, who doesn’t love exploring the forest? Ummmm hello Jungle Book! Hunte’s Garden is a tropical paradise….literally. Filled with thousands of different flora and fauna, it’s definitely a sight for sore eyes. Also, you can spend as much or as little time there as you want. Be on your own island time (my fave). There are also local forests that aren’t as well known, if you dare.
Last but not least, Animal Flower Cave. What a name right? You don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into with a diverse name like that. But, don’t be fooled. It got it’s name from the anemones that are in the pools. The cave itself looks directly into the Atlantic Ocean, with pools inside the cave that are deep enough to swim. While you’re there, be sure to stop at the Clifftop Bar and Restaurant for the world famous lemonade.
SO, as you can see, lots and lots to do here! Have you been? Where did you stay? Any other must do’s while you’re here?
