At first glance, Barbados looks just like any other Caribbean island. However, when you look a bit closer, you'll find some differences. For example, Barbados is one of the most developed islands in the Caribbean; literacy rates are almost at 100 percent and the economy is booming. Barbados is a surprisingly historical island; you'll find that plenty of remnants of Barbados' colonial past have survived in the form of museums and plantations. If you're more interested in spending time outdoors, Barbados is an excellent destination for sports the likes of hiking, diving and wind-surfing.

When to book your Barbados flights
Barbados airfare is popular throughout the year thanks to the country's excellent weather. High season for tickets to Barbados is from late December to mid-April; visitors invade Barbados en masse in order to get away from the cold weather up north. Shoulder season takes place from late April to mid-June and late October to mid-December. Low season is from late June to mid-October. Some people try to avoid Barbados during the summer because it is the rainiest season of the year. However, don't let the rain discourage you from visiting during low season; even the rainiest of days has a fair share of sunshine.
