I live in Barbados and it is a great place to live and work. For the visitor, accommodation can be expensive but if you choose accommodation on the East side of the island, where there are beautiful beaches but not too much tourists, it can be very affordable. Barbadian are very friendly and willing to help. You will never feel lost because you can stop at any Rum shop, church, market, business or home and ask for help and Barbadian are very accommodating. My best beach for visitors is Brown's Beach which is found opposite the Prime Minister's Office.
