The Country

Barbados is located at latitude 13' 10'' N and longitude 50' 35'' W and 1600 miles south east of Miami, Florida. Constantly cooled by the trade winds of the Atlantic, it has a tropical climate and enjoys pleasant summer-like conditions all year round.

For centuries, Barbados, the most easterly island in the Caribbean Sea, has been seen internationally as the gateway to the Caribbean. Despite a tiny land area (432 sq. km.), the country's strategic location - coupled with healthy living conditions and legendary political stability - has allowed it to become the regional hub for transportation and communications. Today, it is a thriving and highly reputable centre for tourism, international business and financial services.
