If your idea of a wonderful Christmas is an endless turquoise-colored sea, soft white sands, and holiday traditions, Barbados will welcome you with all this and then some. This is a beautiful time to visit the island, with many houses and businesses decorating for the holidays. The capital city of Bridgetown is lit up in red and green, with roundabouts portraying different Christmas themes. Indulge in feasts that feature jug jug, a dish made from green peas, guinea corn flour, herbs, and salt meat; Great cake, made with a combination of dried fruits, spices, and a fair amount of liquor, along with baked ham. Despite the blazing sun, you can still listen to tunes about winter wonderlands, sleigh rides, and open fires over the radio while enjoying warm waters and magnificent beaches.
