A toast to Barbados, the island that gave rum its name ("rum-bullion") and was the first island ever to export it.

Barbados also invented Caribbean tourism back in the 1700s, luring George Washington who made his only overseas trip here.

You'll find more to see and do in Barbados than on most islands. Also plenty of good beaches, accommodations ranging from small inns to lavish resorts and excellent dining.
