3. Fresh Seafood and Oistin's Fish Fry

If you like fish, you're in luck. Barbados is known for flying fish, but the "dolphin"—what the Bajans call mahi mahi—tastes amazing too. Can't go wrong with marlin, barracuda, or swordfish either. One word of advice: when visiting Barbados, make sure to book the trip over a weekend. Oistin's Fish Fry opens on Friday and Saturday nights and it's a huge party for both locals and tourists. Oistin's is packed with stands offering the grilled or fried fish of your choice with a side (order the macaroni pie, aka Bajan mac and cheese). Slide it all down with a rum drink, then head over to the "stage" to dance along to the DJ's mix of dancehall and Rick Ross.
