Welcome To Barbados
Barbados, the 21-by-14 mile Caribbean paradise that embodies crystal blue waters, fine powdery sand, brilliant turquoise bays, and smashing nightlife, is situated in the North Atlantic Ocean as the easternmost island of the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies. Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, is the epicenter, with its eclectic mix of rag-tag, shanty-style vendors hawking everything from homegrown vegetables, fruits, underwear, toiletries, cleaning products, clothes, purses.
Embrace life and celebrate it with the local Bajans at the biggest Caribbean festival, attracting over 100k people from across the globe, filled with colorful carnivals, dancing, live music, cultural events, and of course, Barbadian rum! For Bajans, it’s a cultural celebration that has hallmarked the end of the sugar cane growing season for over 300 years. For travelers, like us, it’s a unique opportunity to become deeply immersed in the dynamic culture of the island nation. Unlike a typical tourist trip, you will experience Barbados in a way that large tourist groups miss. Offering a myriad of activities catering to your appetite for structure, spontaneity, and to “brush shoulders” through the lively streets of Barbados soaking up the history and culture during the world-renowned festival, welcome to Crop Over 2019!
arrive and let go
Minutes after arriving at the Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) you will proceed to process through immigration and customs. After your successful completion of immigration, you will collect your luggage from your flight’s designated baggage carousel and make your way over to our complimentary Villa Blue Skye shuttle service, (look for the VBS Sign).
On the shuttle, you will be greeted with a warm hello from your driver, fresh cold towels and beverages. Your driver will transport you and your fellow VBS guest from the airport to your home away from home for the next 10 days! Yes, this is all minutes after you’ve landed on the island.
Check into your room at a renowned Barbadian hotel/villa where you will receive your retreat information packet with your itinerary and details covering your stay. The afternoon is yours to settle in. Your very own retreat representatives will be there to assist you with whatever you need.
