On an annual basis, Barbados is regarded as one of the best tourist destinations in the western hemisphere. In addition to vacation, people are starting to come to this Caribbean island to retire at an increasing rate. The advantages of retiring in Barbados are many. Here is a look at a few of those advantages:

Language
The official language of Barbados is English. Considering that the country was under British rule for hundreds of years, it’s not surprising to see much of England’s culture active in Barbados.

Scenery
Barbados has clear water, amazing beaches and weather that can’t be beat. Due to its positioning, you don’t have to worry as much about hurricanes as you do in other Caribbean nations.

Domestic aid
It’s quite easy to find help in Barbados. Whether you want a housekeeper, a gardener or a cook, you can find many people willing to work for a modest wage.

Sports
Barbados is a nation that is obsessed with sports — especially cricket. Golf, basketball and volleyball are popular, as are water sports and fishing.
