Of the many Caribbean islands, perhaps the Barbados is one of the least expensive to visit. Even on hotels and resorts of the same luxury level, Barbados prices seem just a little bit friendlier. But make no mistake, Barbados hotels and resorts are some of the best in the world; perhaps that is why destination wedding packages to the island continue to sell like the proverbial hotcakes. In fact, a visit to the website of the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association will immediately reveal why Barbados is popular with couples.
