    My Trip to Barbados 2013

    I truly loved my time in Barbados and reall7 enjoyed the tradewind that were present for most of my stay. Some basci facts about Barbados are:

    Barbados has over 65 miles of gorgeous beaches.  There are coral reefs with sunken ships for snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts. There are beautiful golf courses and hiking trails. The National sport is Polo. They also have the Mount Gay Rum distillery with tours and The Caribbean Cigar Company.

     

    One of my favorite things about Barbados was how clean and beautiful the entire island is.  The Barbadians are very friendly and helpful.  Barbados has a very high literacy rate and standard of living. And last but not least, my resort-The Crane.  Not only was it beautiful, but I had my own washer and dryer in my suite!

     

    One of our days in Barbados was spent visiting some of their Historical sights, and they have many.  We went to the Garrison Historic District (A Unesco World Heritage Site) and saw the changing of the guards and visited the house George Washington stayed in for 6 weeks during 1751as a young man visiting his sick brother.  It was Washington’s only trip outside the continental US.  Then we went and saw the garrison itself, St Annes Garrison built by the British in 1789.  In November of 1966, when Barbados achieved its full Independence from Britain the Garrison raised the Barbados Flag. They have a very large collection of historical cannons preserved at the fort.

     

    On another day we went to the Barbados Concorde Experience, which frankly I wasn’t too excited about.  But I was wrong.  In addition to having the original jet, (that flew from London to Barbados) all set up to tour, they also had a mockup of the waiting lounge and the cockpit.  I was both educational and fun.  That same day, a small group of us went to Harrisons Cave.  Another awe inspiring excursion.  You ride down into these massive caverns, covered with stalagmites and stalactites that are breathtaking, little rivers and pools dotting the areas.  While on the tour they explain how the island was formed, and where their water supply comes from.

     

    That night we went to Oistins fish Fry.  Every kind of food under the sun, live bands, with dance floors set up and all types of local crafts, jewelry and toys for sale in little booths.  For more upscale restaurants and clubs, you can’t go wrong with St Lawrence Gap.  There are also some awesome shopping opportunities on Barbados.

     

    There truly is something for everyone in the family on this Island.  There are some all inclusive resorts here and some adults only resorts too, As a matter of fact, Barbados is the location of the newest Sandals resort!

    Tulum was an ancient Mayan fortress city that rose to power toward the end of the Classic period. The most iconic of its structures, the Castillo, is perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the clear turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean. The cliff-top Castillo, with its beachfront location and lush green landscape, is the image most often associated with the Mayan Riviera.

    Mazatlan-

    I have been studying and testing on Mazatlan recently and was fascinated by what I learned so I thought I’d share a little.  They call it the Colonial City on the Beach because it was founded in the late 1500’s and they have recently restored their downtown area to its former glory. It’s all 19th century Spanish architecture and has shops, restaurants, museums and a theater arts Center.  Also, Mazatlan has a pre-lenten Carnaval week long street party in addition to gorgeous beaches, sport fishing, zip lining, surfing and 4 golf courses. Mazatlan also has excursions to old mining towns and a tequila plantation!  It really seems to have something for everyone and has the benefit of being really affordable as a destination.
