I'm getting married in August, and trying to plan a honeymoon. Does anyone have location recommendations? We are thinking that Barbados might be a good destination. Has anyone been to Barbados in August? Any tips or suggestions?
Sounds like fun! I've been to Barbados twice, but in September and June, not August.
Do you have any particular interests and plans for your honeymoon? It is a small island. If you are planning to spend most of the time on a resort, that's great. If you are the type that will rent a car and explore the island each day, you might run out of things to do after a week or so.
There are some amazing beaches on this island. Definitely visit the Mount Gay Rum Distillery and do the tour. Just like other touristy places in the Caribbean, you've got the segway / ziplining / catamaran / submarine / swim with dolphins / etc activities, if you've got money to blow.
This is hurricane season, and although Barbados is in the outskirts of the hurricane belt, there is a tiny risk. Personally, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I've been to the Caribbean plenty during hurricane season and always had great weather.
