The Lowdown on Limbo in Barbados and Other Ways to Have a Blast
2. Try limbo dancing. Reassuringly, the dancers are highly professional and will not let you get smaller than it is possible to, nor put ladies where audiences can spy up skirts. They’ll even catch you if you fall over. So do it! All you have to lose is a few dignity, and in the Caribbean, who cares? Limbo dancing is above all dancing, so it will be huge fun and laughs. And while the dancers are showing you ways it’s done, you’ll marvel at their incredible athleticism.
3. Try a nearby rum! We’re convinced that rum was invented here (Mount Gay contains the oldest proven claim), and it’s been improving since that time. There are several local brands, each of which have their distinctive taste and strength. Want more information? Ask your friendly bartender or please take a rum tour! Mount Gay has a superb one (you are able to participate in the tasting), as does Foursquare Rum Factory. Call them for details and educate your palate.
4. Get lost. Rent an automobile, have a map, and head off for adventure! Many visitors have a very ball just tooling around Barbados’ good roads, trying bluetooth speaker with microphone

Fortunately, the region remains in the safest places in the world (but please make use of your wise practice), and locals friendly – though their directions can be somewhat confusing from time to time. Truth is, you’re never more than ten mins from your coast, a beach or possibly a landmark, then there is always a shop or store to buy water, food or something like that stronger. So let your wanderlust loose!
5. Walk the beach. Barbados is blessed with dozens of wonderful, white-sand beaches with traces of pink in them (those are seams of coral), all well suited for sunning, playing or just walking. One of the area favourites could be the mile-long Carlisle Bay beach, between Bridgetown and the Hilton Hotel. It’s a wonderful place to stroll up and down, letting your thinking wander since the surf laps at the feet. Best times are day or sunset, in the event the light is just amazing. But of course, anywhere in the world, avoid deserted beaches, especially in the evening.
