Barbados

Just as colorful as it is gracious, Barbados has a character unlike any other destination in the world. It is 166 square miles, completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and is the only coral island in the region. The locals, called Bajans, say that every day in Barbados is a celebration of life. Known as the birthplace of rum, first made over 370 years ago, one of the best ways to celebrate this unique island is with a Rum Punch.
