The Lowdown on Limbo in Barbados and Other Ways to Have a Blast
2. Try limbo dancing. Reassuringly, the dancers are highly professional and does not permit you to go lower than you can, nor put ladies where audiences can spy up skirts. They’ll even catch you in the event you fall over. So do it! All you have to lose is a dignity, and in the Caribbean, who cares? Limbo dancing is first of all dancing, so it will be huge fun and laughs. And while the dancers are showing you the way it’s done, you’ll marvel at their incredible athleticism.
3. Try the area rum! We’re convinced that rum was invented here (Mount Gay gets the oldest proven claim), and been improving ever since. There are several local brands, each of which has its own distinctive taste and strength. Want more information? Ask your friendly bartender or please take a rum tour! Mount Gay has a superb one (you can take part in the tasting), as also does Foursquare Rum Factory. Call them for details and educate your palate.
4. Get lost. Rent an automobile, require a map, and head off for adventure! Many visitors have a very ball just tooling around Barbados’ good roads, searching for spots. Fortunately, this tropical isle remains with the safest places in the world (but please use your good sense), and locals friendly – though their directions could be a little confusing at times. Truth is, you’re never more than ten minutes coming from a coast, the seaside or a landmark, as there are always a shop or store to get water, food as well stronger. So let your wanderlust loose!
5. Walk the beach. Barbados is blessed with a large number of wonderful, white-sand beaches with

One of a nearby favourites is the mile-long Carlisle Bay beach, between Bridgetown and the Hilton Hotel. It’s a wonderful spot to stroll down and up, letting your thinking wander since the surf laps your feet. Best times are morning or sunset, in the event the light is just amazing. But of course, anywhere on earth, avoid deserted beaches, especially in the evening.
