You are staying on the West Coast and planning to get back and forth each day to Silver Sands.
Be aware that the traffic in Barbados can be a nightmare. What you are thinking will be a half hour drive will be more like an hour or more. It is real bad if you travel within an hour or two of rush hour in the morning and afternoon. The only time you can zip around the island is at sunrise during the work week and before 8:30am on Saturday and Sunday. You can never zip around in the afternoon. Do not have firm dinner plans on windy days!
If you are doing your own driving you will get lost the first day or two. Add another half hour first trip. No big deal as you can only get but so lost on a small island but signage and directions will not be very clear.
Barbados is a great place and you will have fun but you will need patience and planning to get around. (Too bad the wind and waves do not always adhere to our plans!)

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't realize Barbados has teh traffic issues that major cities have. I guess the best plan of attack is to head out early morning, and use the highway furthest from Bridgetown, Errol Barrow Highway? Get lost, ya I know about that, last time I was in St. lucia I got totally lost seaching for the kite spot and I was only travelling 15 km, but figuered it out after 30 min.
Trust me I'd be all over Zed's if I wasn't travelling with the inlaws. What you going to do...
