With part Creole culture and part British, the Barbados Island is one of the most popular destinations for our British friends. Their tea customs mixed with their Caribbean music give the British a sense of foreign comfort and any traveler the exotic experience of a culture mix.

St. Lucia

An island for the nature wanderers, St. Lucia offers its tourist a part of the island where you can shop and dine for hours.
