The independent Commonwealth member Barbados has a size of 280 sqm and it is 25 miles long and 15 miles wide while hosting 264 000 inhabitants.
Bridgetown is the lively but still cute capital of Barbados, which is always fun to visit.
Around 100.000 Bajans are assumed to be living in a fairly relaxed and well organized Caribbean capital that is considered to be one of the wealthiest within the region.
One of the cutest harbors in the Caribbean is perfectly located in the heart of town with all kinds of stores and facilities in convenient walking distance.
In particular a walk over the bridge can be very entertaining when running into some great local Bajan performers.
Another important factor for the economy are various financial services, which has brought many international companies to Bridgetown, Barbados.
