Barbados is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea near Saint Lucia and the independent State of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Bridgetown is the capital and the largest city. Barbados was a British colony and preserved traditions of those years — five o'clock tea, golf, cricket, and polo. It's not for nothing that the island is still called "Little England." You can't come to Barbados without tasting the local light rum and coconut "Malibu" liqueur. There's even a museum dedicated to the pirates' favorite drink. Like many Caribbean resorts, this island is famous for its tropical beaches with palm trees and white sand. The wildlife sanctuary is renowned for its collection of animals and plants. Here you can see unique green monkeys, red deer, caymans, turtles, raccoons, pelicans, etc. In Barbados, there are many colonial buildings, where there were plantations and shelters for pirates.
