What to do in Barbados? The Land Where Chickens Have Right of Passage

Did you know that in Barbados chickens have the right of passage? So it is! Chickens are protected by law and have free access to roam wherever they wish.

Little Barbados, located in the eastern Caribbean, was colonized by the British in the 17th century and retains much of its colonial charm, despite having gained its independence in 1966.

Now let's get to the good stuff: the five must-see places in Barbados. Firstly, Bridgetown, the capital, with its colonial architecture and busy Broad Street. Second, the beautiful beaches of the West Coast, such as Paynes Bay. Third, Harrison's Cave, an incredible system of underground caves. Fourth, Farley Hill National Park, perfect for a picnic with a view. Last but not least, the incredible Andromeda Botanical Garden.

The currency of Barbados is the Barbados Dollar and the official language is English. As for the visa, Brazilians do not need it for stays of up to 90 days.


Regarding the socioeconomic and political situation, Barbados is a parliamentary democracy and has one of the highest GDP per capita in the Caribbean. The country is stable and safe, with the economy heavily based on tourism and financial services.


Barbados isn't the cheapest destination in the Caribbean, but it's worth every penny. On average, you should plan to spend around $130 to $200 per day, including accommodation, food, and activities.


Now, about our curiosity in the title, that's right: chickens are protected by law in Barbados! You will see them walking freely through streets, beaches and restaurants, without fear of being disturbed.
