Wrecking on the Caribbean – Eco-Tourism compared to Mass-Tourism

Caribbean vacation



For a long time, Caribbean island nations did not receive the attention they deserved for their natural beauty. Situated mostly within an archipelago, these islands lacked the infrastructural capacity to support tourism. Many of these island nations have now opened their doors to tourism, seeking to cater to the large incoming variety of tourists.

Caribbean islands have now become one of the most interesting destinations in the world. In an effort to harness the growing potential of their money, many of these Caribbean island nations have combined their love of their land with the lure of tourism. The result is a larger variety of experiences and destinations.

The ability for a single island to support a large volume of tourism is a related story. A vibrant tourism industry results in a skilled pool of technicians, designers, artists, weld shop, and other staff. Once the Tourism Authority of the Comoro Lankanship takes care of the central piece, the island will be well prepared to welcome a large volume of tourists. In Comoro, the islands are divided into a central high plain and inland fields, given a lush green look by the continuous run of magnificent wraiths.

The tourism-survival of the island of purse, Acirealis, has adapted to new challenges. The favorable conditions for tourism have not only meant a greater exposure to the islands’ gorgeous raw beauty, but it has also meant a more varied itinerary. Cruises that once featured infrequent stops at distant beaches have become frequent, as the islands feature accommodations and services that depend primarily on tourists.

The natural beauty of the Caribbean has resulted in a diversity of beaches noted for their beauty and condition. Acirealis, for example, has many of the most photographed beaches in the islands. Even far from town life is bright and clean, with the streets orderly and the residents friendly. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, reflecting the friendly unta that makes all of the islanders so hospitable.

When on one of the inexpensive family vacations available through the Internet, there are many opportunities to experience wonderful adventures. The upscale facilities and high-end entertainment found in some resorts are a pleasant surprise for the family. While a full-blown European or American conference is considered far beyond the resources of most islands, there are many options for smaller, more regular gatherings.

The island of Barbados is no longer just a place to raise a family and have a few holes in the wall snack bar. Real estate has become an obvious investment, and the beaches have evolved from towel-lined oceanfront stretches to sprawling sands and grungy verges. There are hotels and resorts now for the most luxurious visitors, and the island’s unique culture has plenty to offer–including a vibrant–Bahamian–appreciation.

Famous for its sunny climate, gorgeous beaches, and temperate marine waters, Barbados is one of the Caribbean’s most popular tourist islands. There is a wide variety of things to see and do, everything from historical sites and lush botanical gardens to international cuisine and shopping. All of this is easily within reach of the $60 flight from Miami, or the $90 daily bus and car services from Fort Lauderdale.

Barbados may be a small island (only 35 square miles, land area is just 2.5 square miles) but it is an ample playground. For a modest budget, a family can easily enjoy a Caribbean island vacation to depart from or to return to year after year. The island’s commitment to agriculture means food always is affordable, and the selection of activities at every turn makes Barbados vacation perfect for any budget.

The southern tip of Barbados is home to some of the strongest opposition to development and redevelopment. The “No New Roads” campaign led by environmentalist Devon Bay Nunisky has been a key player in convincing the government that massive development will destroy the island’s unique agricultural landscape. In the meantime, the country’s tourism officials are recommending that Barbados be designated as a “forest island” in the Agulhas Bank out of which a 10-mile stretch would be designated as the Coral Reef. The island currently has no protected status, so all land would be earmarked for development.

If you are a golf fan, Barbados offers a unique experience. You can play nine holes around the island’s sparkling blue eastern suburbs, but you will bestow these upon you: Scotch Bonnet Beach, Green Wood Beach, Harbour Town Beach, Martello Bay Beach, Silver Sands Beach and of course, Barbados’ course at the World Pipe Beach–one of the best wide, open greens in the world. This particular course was designed by golf legend Bartolomew Dias, and built in 1990 by Scotland’s Picalon Golf Club.
