Welcome to Travel Guide 2 Barbados, the site about travel, tourism and vacations in Barbados.
Barbados is an island nation in the western Atlantic Ocean, just to the East of the Caribbean sea. The island of Barbados is one of the chain that make up the Lesser Antilles, and the country's closest neighbors are Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.
As 2005, the estimated population of Barbados was 279,254. with over a third of the population living in the capital city of Bridgetown. Apart from Bridgetown, other important settlements on the island include Bathsheba, Blackmans, Crab Hill, Greenland, Holetown, Oistins, Speightstown and The Crane.
At the time of independence, Barbados had a low income economy based around sugarcane production. In the years since that time, the economy has diversified into tourism, financial services, information technology and light manufacturing, allowing the country to achieve upper-middle income status and a high standard of living. Today Barbados is the third highest rated country in North America in the Human Development Index after the United States and Canada.
Although a British Overseas Territory, the Barbadian economy is closely tied to that of the United States. This is reflected by that the fact that the currency of Barbados, Barbadian Dollar (BBD), has since 1975, been pegged to the US Dollar at 1 USD = 2 BBD.
