Under $100 / Caribbean

Oistins, Barbados, is known for its Friday night fish fries, but what else is there to do in the parish?

 

Get your breakfast on at Cafe Luna, where the options range from the classic Bajan breakfast (eggs, pan-fried flying fish, fired plantains and grilled tomatoes with toast) to well-known breakfast favorites like frittatas and omelets. A huge breakfast can be had for less than $15.

 

Enjoy a morning relaxing on Dover Beach before it gets more crowded in the afternoons. A popular — and one of the prettiest — beach on Barbados, entry is free, but you can choose to pay for umbrella and chair rentals or for water activities like jet skiing or wind surfing.

 

Head to another beautiful and popular beach, Miami Beach, for lunch at Mr. Delicious Snack Bar. The restaurant serves up classic Bajan fare, like fish cakes and rum punch, for an unbeatable price.

 

Take a walk around Saint Lawrence Gap, one of the most popular neighborhoods, for more than a mile of straight bars, restaurants, clubs, shopping and hotels, ranging from budget to upscale. You’re sure to find something you love, or at least a spot you want to come back to. The neighborhood is right on the beach and sports a new boardwalk for seaside strolls and great selfie opportunities.

 

Of course, for dinner, you can’t miss the fish fries. The Oistins Fish Market serves food every day, but Friday is the most popular affair, when you’ll find a huge mix of tourists and locals eating, drinking and dancing to live music.

Spain’s Renfe Talgo High-Speed Train

Europe is known for its high-speed train travel, a mode of transportation that can take you across the continent in a flash. In Spain, Renfe’s “Talgo” can propel you across the country with speeds between 99 to 124 mph. The Taglo train can cut your transit time almost in half; for example, traveling from Barcelona to Valencia by car or bus can take up to six hours, but a seat onboard the Talgo train can reduce this travel time to 3.5 hours.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
