Guest Safety & Security
Guests of Barbados vacation villas will find that the island is relatively safe and secure. Keeping these few health and security concerns in mind will help to ensure that your vacation is enjoyable and hassle-free.
As is true for any vacation destination, we recommend keeping your villa and your rental car locked. Secure valuables in a safe if one is available.
Although Barbados is one of the safer islands in the Caribbean, rarely, violent crimes do occur. Be especially vigilant on the beaches at night.
Driving on Barbados can be challenging as hills and winding roads are normal and driving is done on the left side of the road. Stay alert and drive carefully to avoid a trip to the hospital.
Do not underestimate the power of the Caribbean sun – many a traveler has had his or her vacation spoiled by painful sunburns or sunstroke. Protect yourself with sunscreen and avoid the strong midday rays.
