Sailing from Barbados
Setting sail from Bridgetown
The tiny eastern Caribbean island of Barbados has long been a favourite for British holiday makers, thanks in no small part to the platinum sands and warm, crystal clear waters of the west coast. But there's more to Barbados than just beaches; the delightful colonial architecture of the old garrison in Bridgetown, the capital, is fully deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage status, and the island interior is littered with old sugar plantations and natural wonders such as Harrison's Cave. Perhaps the island's biggest asset, however, is the Bajans themselves, who are some of the friendliest people you're ever likely to meet.
Check out the open house programme during your visit – you might get to see something normally closed to the public.
Santarém is situated at the ‘Wedding of the Waters’, where the Amazon and Tapajós rivers meet. A former rubber boom town, the city is now a focus for the controversial soybean industry. Activities on offer nearby include canoeing, wildlife walks and day trips to the laid back town of Alter do Chão.
Manaus is a remarkable place, a sweltering, steamy city in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. Situated near the confluence of the Rio Negro and Amazon rivers, surrounded by thick jungle, the city is a major port in spite of its location some 1,000 miles from the sea.
Trinidad and Tobago: Scarborough
Scarborough is the capital of Tobago, a sleepy island where tourism remains mostly low key. The town has a few interesting colonial era sights, but we’d recommend exploring Tobago’s natural treasures instead, including stunning reefs, secluded waterfalls and a rainforest reserve that draws birdwatchers from around the globe.
Arriving in Bridgetown
Barbados is packed with historic houses, signal stations and sugar mills – one of our favourites is Sunbury Plantation House.
