Barbados and the wider Caribbean are riding high off the back of an unprecedented 3 simultaneous ICC World Twenty20 cricket titles won recently in India by our Men, Women & Under 19 cricket teams. The underlying vibe across the region is one of Champions and underscored by the instant DJ Bravo hit soundtrack of the same name. This winning feeling and attitude means a lot to our proud people, and it translates into better interactions across all levels of business and social interaction.

If you’re fortunate enough to currently be in Barbados, you will be enjoying a feeling akin to ‘carnival come early’. This atmosphere translates into a true island vibe of ‘Monday could fall on a Wednesday’ as Bajans would say. Simply put, everything is good and all of our cares have disappeared.  Definitely something you want to surround yourself with while on your hard earned vacation.

The champion spirit continues throughout the month of May in Barbados where motorsport takes over as the national obsession. From karting to circuit racing to International rallying, there is competition every weekend in this month featuring local and international stars vying for the right to call themselves a champion. Stuck in the middle of this month is also an international highlight – the Barbados Festival of Speed. A mix of competition and entertainment will see 3 time & reigning Formula1 World Driver’s Champion Lewis Hamilton, MBE, headlining the event in his Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 car.

Dovetailing the month is the largest rally in the Caribbean, SOL Rally Barbados. Locals come out in droves to see local motorsport hero and ‘Mr. Rally Barbados’ Roger ‘The Sheriff’ Skeete go up against the best in the region and invited guests from the UK, Ireland and Europe. His unofficial title would tell you that he usually prevails having won the rally an unprecedented 13 times! He will again contest this year’s edition in his trusty Subaru Impreza WRC S14B rally car.

Given that motorsport generally only takes place on the weekend and bank holidays this still leaves a visitor plenty of time in between to enjoy the beauty of the island and soak up the sun on our lovely sand beaches. If reggae music is your thing, then May also means that you have the chance to see some of the world’s top reggae talent at the annual Barbados Reggae Festival. A weeklong event enjoyed by music lovers worldwide.

If motorsport is your thing, then this is the month for you. If not, then you’re still in luck as the sand, sea and sun are still as dependable as the rising and setting of the sun itself. Make the right choice for accommodation and concierge services and you’re already on the way to the vacation of a lifetime.
