All roads leads to Rum in Barbados 😁

Join Neil as he enjoys rum punch at Hackleton’s Cliff (and learns why Mr.Hackleton rode his horse off the cliff!), explores the sugar plantation and rum distillery at St Nicholas Abbey, and discovers the intriguing history of rum-making on the island.

Along the way he'll take you to a historic windmill used for grinding canes, a modern distillery, and a beautifully restored plantation house that is now a charming guesthouse.

His story unfolds at https://confidentials.com/leeds/getting-the-abbey-rum-habit-in-the-heart-of-old-barbados




Barbados Weather in May

Thinking of traveling to Barbados in May but concerned about what the weather is like and the possibility of rain?

May is a great month to visit the island, as the rainy season has not yet begun so there is plenty of sunshine and little rain. It's quite a breezy time as well with the trade winds cooling you off as you relax on the beach or explore the island.

In mid-April, hotels switch from the higher "Winter Season" rates to more budget-friendly "Summer Rates" and also offer lots of special offers, discounts and deals. In July and early August the rates will increase again for the Crop Over carnival season. So in May you'll benefit from great rates and deals on your Barbados accommodation.
