Swimwear is restricted to beaches/pools. You should wear a t. shirt and shorts/skirt when going into town, etc. Most restaurants require male diners to wear a shirt with a collar and trousers (not jeans). Temperature in Barbados is usually warm all year round, so light clothing will do. You may w…ish to take a light jumper/cardigan for the evenings, especially if on Atlantic coast, as whilst it's not cold, it can get a bit breezy! Rain is not normally a problem, but a kagool or umbrella won't take up much room in your case. I'd also advise you get some deck shoes or rubber wetsuit shoes for when going in the sea, as there are sea urchins and they hurt like mad if you step on them. If you do, get some lime on it asap - locals or bars will be happy to help. (MORE)

Of course they have cars in Barbados. Most of our cars are brought in from Eurasia as opposed to North America. For example, our Fords come from Thailand. We also may have the same model of vehicle such as somewhere in the U.S but the engine specs would be different to suit. The name of the vehicle …may not be the same as it is in the U.S. either. Example, the Suzuki Escudo is the Suzuki Vitara here. We are also the main dealer for Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Mercedes Benz, Porsche and a couple other brands for certain parts of the Caribbean and Latin America. So they must come through our port first before continuing to their destination. Hope that helps :) (MORE)
