Safety
Barbados is a very safe island but like any place, it not exempt of crimes. It's quite safe to walk around and women feel safe walking alone in most places but like at home, practice regular safety smarts: don't be flashy, keep an eye on your belongings and don't go to deserted places.

Tip: Use regular safety smarts like you would at home: travel in busy places and stay on main streets. Do not wear flashy jewerly and don't leave personal belongings unattended.

Shopping
The main shopping area near the pier is downtown about 25 minutes walk from the pier. You will see many cheap stores as well as large duty free department stores.

Tip: Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen & hat. Take a bottle of water.

Sunscreen 
Just like anywhere else that's tropical, the sun is very hot in Barbados and sunscreen is recommended.

Taxis
There are many taxi companies and they will be readily available right at the cruise exit. They can be hired for one trip, round trips, half or whole days. Always best to negotiate BEFORE getting into the cab and pay at the end of the service.

Tip: If planning to go to various locations, best to hire a taxi for the day and negotiate one set price.

Tipping
It is customary to tip 10-15% in restaurants. Tipping taxi drivers is not common but is appreciated. For those new to scuba diving, captains (boat driver) and dive masters are tipped.

Water
The tap water is safe to drink. You can easily purchase purified water, soda water and spring water all over downtown.
