"There are MANY beach vendors..." Barbados Tourist Trap Tip by tazmaniak

Barbados Tourist Traps: 25 reviews and 18 photos

There are MANY beach vendors selling sarongs, necklaces, Bajan 'art' and other things ... including dope (Ganja) or other drugs. By all means, buy what you like and spend what you want but they are a bit of a rip off but can save you going to the shops! Remember that buying drugs (this is not a lecture ... use what you want) increases demand to use local fields and resources for drug plants rather than natural flora. This damages the eco-system and can lead to destruction of natural habitats for local animals and people too!
