If your idea of a vacation is sitting on a beach with a daiquiri in hand, then Barbados is the place for you. The island country known for its tropical climate is home to Mount Gay Rum, the world’s oldest rum brand. Those who want to learn more about the liquor can take a $10 tasting tour, which includes award-winning rums, such as the Black Barrel and Silver Rum, with notes of banana and sugarcane. For the full experience, opt for the Bajan buffet lunch where you can dine on local dishes and rum-infused desserts while overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The lunch is topped off with a glass of handmade Mount Gay Rum Punch, which will let your mind sail away into paradise.
