Crane Hotel Opened In 1887
When our snow-bound friends think of getting away to Barbados or just “The Caribbean” in January, many have an idyllic vision of enjoying a nice quiet dinner outside as they overlook the coast. The sound of waves on sand. Sun going down. You get the picture.
Unfortunately, that’s often not the reality of Barbados and other tourist destinations. Think of the party at the Gap or Bridgetown Harbour on a Saturday night. Think of Friday afternoon traffic along the south coast. Not exactly what some tourists have in mind.
Our friend Linda at My Barbados Blog has posted about the history of the Crane Hotel – one of the places on the island where you can find a certain type of slower, secluded vacation. Linda is also a travel agent who can get you into The Crane and other similar venues for not a whole lot more money than a typical “cookie cutter” vacation package.
