Living in Barbados

Barbados is a tiny tropical island in the south eastern Caribbean. It's hot all the time, then it rains, then it's hot AND humid. That's pretty much what you need to know about the weather. Barbados has one of the highest standards of living in the world, ranking 31st on the global Human Development Index. It has excellent modern infrastructure and utilities. In general, Barbados is an excellent place to live.

For tons more information on Barbados you can visit the Fun Barbados Travel Guide. While primarily a tourism guide, it has a huge section of Barbados information as well. This page is a much more personal view of living here; it's not all tourist brochures when you live here.

To be clear, this list is completely subjective, not rationalized, analyzed or back up by statistics, and is just the way I feel about things and what I like and what bothers me.

Positives
  • Warm climate
  • Not disaster prone
  • Stable government
  • Relatively free society
  • Friendly people
  • Generally laid back
  • Excellent infrastructure
  • Reliable utilities
  • World class beaches
  • Generally friendly people
Negatives
  • Can be unbearably hot
  • Mind numbingly small
  • Sometimes very backwards thinking
  • Generally laid back can also mean poor service
  • Cost of living skyrocketing (Like much of the rest of the world)
  • Intensifying crime
  • Increasing Social Violence
  • Astronomical Land Prices
  • Animal cruelty common and socially accepted
