Every year on January 21st, we celebrate the life of Errol Walton Barrow and one of his pastimes, yachting. This year was no different, as the annual Mount Gay Round the Island Race took place. This year, sailors took to the high seas in an anti-clockwise direction, to circumnavigate Barbados, which is a departure from previous years. As usual, there were windsurfers, kite-surfers and sail boats of various kinds making the journey. A popular activity on this day is to track the boats along the coast and cheer them on from close vantage points. A hired car like the Suzuki Jimny, Vitara or other SUV types are perfect for this great island adventure. In St. Lucy, the focal point this month’s We Gatherin’ Barbados 2020, a nice drive up in your rental car would’ve provided sweeping views for long distances at one of the more challenging parts of the race. The rounding of the north. With many other activities taking place on dry land, you could also stop by the new memorial for Mr. Barrow close to his birthplace. Follow this up with a scoot down the west coast in your rental car of choice and meet up with the sailors at the world-famous Carlisle Bay. They’re adventures like this to be had every day in Barbados; it is just up to you to rent a car and make the most of your island vacation.   
The north of the island is one of the more undeveloped parts of Barbados. St. Lucy is our most northern parish (they’re 11 in total) and does not feature any hotels or much by way of big business. This makes it one of the most authentic stops on an island tour in your hired car. The rugged beauty of this flat parish allows for stunning vistas, especially at sunrise and sunset which can both be viewed over the mighty Atlantic Ocean, as there are both eastern and western coastlines. Some say that this is the crown of the island.  We Gatherin’ Barbados 2020 highlights this part of the island this month and is bringing an enhanced focus and activity to the area. There’s a Food & Rum Festival Barbados pop-up this weekend, special church services, cookouts and fish fries, and even some sanctioned drag racing. There’s so much to see and do this month, so stay tuned. It is definitely worth getting a rental car for your visit to make the frequent trips required to really take in the splendor of St. Lucy. Driving up to the north is one of the longer drives you’ll likely take on your vacation, so a nice air-conditioned hired car may be your speed, or you can take it in in one of our open Kia Mokes with the roof off. There are stunning photo opportunities in areas like Cove Bay, Middle Bay, Cuckold Point, the old Harrison Point Lighthouse, the former US naval base. Make the drive up in your rental and make a day of it each time, taking in the authentic Bajan dishes from a plethora of rum shops along the way. Make your Barbados experience authentic in one of the true outposts of the island. Book your rental car today. Remember, there’s no winter in Barbados!  
As we open the new year, we wish everyone a happy and healthy 2020. This year Barbados is focused on an initiative to have our citizens return to the island for vacation, investment or retirement; and to offer targeted tourism related events by parish. This month We Gatherin’ Barbados 2020 highlights our northern most parish St. Lucy. This part of the island is one of natural unspoilt beauty, as there are plenty of open spaces and no major towns or hotel products. It is really great for those looking for a bit of authentic Bajan life. To truly explore its charm, one needs to have a hired car. The attractions of note include the picturesque River Bay inlet and rugged cliffs of North Point. The Animal Flower Cave is another unique attraction which offers visitors the chance to go into the belly of a cliff into a series natural cavernous pockets featuring pools filled with sea flora. A short drive in your hired car will get you up into the north to begin your adventure. The very flat terrain offers sweeping vistas perfect for sight seeing and photography and makes it very easy to navigate by sight. We recommend any visitor to take the drive up to this naturally beautiful parish. Whether you’re gathering with friends and family or visiting the island as a part of your annual pilgrimage or first-time visit, we suggest a GPS equipped hired car is the way to have an authentic Barbados experience. Leave the drudge of northern winter behind and enjoy the cool tropical breezes of our island! Make your car rental reservation here.
In addition to the religious significance of Christmas, Barbados celebrates with food. Traditional Christmas meals include ham, leg pork, turkey and stuffing, jug-jug, pigeon peas and rice, macaroni pie and coleslaw. Each household or establishment claims to have the best of one of these dishes and Bajans and you can enjoy driving from place to place to sample this fare. You hired car can be your passport to culinary delight, as you wind your way around the countryside. As a multi-cultural society there is also a plethora of adopted delicacies from around the Caribbean. A short trip in your rental car can take you to a Trini restaurant for pastelles or a little garlic pork, or a Guyanese spot for a dash of pepperpot and rice. Ham cutters, traditional fresh cooked ham in a Bajan salt bread, available at most rum shops around the island also seem to taste better at Christmas time. Let your travels take you from shop to shop to conduct your own tests!  Wash it all down with a cold glass of sorrel. Just be careful, as some of them can be fermented and driving your rental car may have to be turned over to your designated driver. However, you celebrate the holidays, we hope you do it in Barbados with a hired car from us. Barbados can always serve up a special experience, but we happen to think it can be more special at Christmas. Happy Holidays!
