Barbados Awards Belong to!

My favorite rum in the world is Mount Gay. When I visited Barbados last year and found the Mt Gay Rum Factory was selling the Extra Old 1.75ml bottles for just $30, I had to check my pulse to see if I'd died and gone to heaven. But in a way I was in heaven because Barbados has just as many heavenly restaurants, beaches, and maybe best of all more Mt Gay XO rum than any of the 20+ islands I've been to! Perhaps that's why customers love Barbados so much. In fact, this past year we once again sent thousands upon thousands of customers to the point we won the Barbados Tourism's Top Tour Operator Award for the year, the third year in a row we've brought back some hardware from Barbados!

I'm sure our customers have plenty of favorites of their own, but mine are:

Top restaurant: Scarlet, just across from "The House" Hotel. Be sure to have the cheeseburger sliders and of course a Mt Gay Grand Martini which has quite the kick!Also, The Tides just up the road from Scarlet is perfect when you're ready to spend a bit more than you'd like, but get much more in return. Be sure to request a table by the water!

Top beach: The Crane. If you've never been there, breathless will be the only way to describe the first impression of the cliffs overlooking the incredible shades of blue. A surfer's delight! Be sure to see Shawn "The Sheriff" on Crane Beach who makes the best rum punch I've ever had!

Top attraction: What else, the Mount Gay Rum factory! It's not what I thought in terms of wandering a big factory floor, etc. but more of a historical look back via video and interactive displays which take you back to 1703 when the rum was first made. The free tastings at the end always lead to another drink, so plan accordingly! :)

So much more to see and do on Barbados. Think about a trip on your stay in the islands, especially since has the best prices as always around!
