BARBADOS GETAWAY 

Barbados is a beautiful island with so much to offer! Bright blue waters, white and pink sparkled sand and people so lively and lovely that we already know we won’t wanna leave!

Dates: April 26 - May 1 or May 3, 2023 
Location: Christ Church, Barbados

While we too, can appreciate an all-inclusive experience, Global Getaways are intentionally not all-inclusive. We work to source locally owned or operated hotels and work with Bajan  locals to collaborate for the ultimate experience. Getways are off the resort, off the beaten path and conscientiously cultivated for our travelers.

iLBC Global Getaways are intimate. We’re purposeful in offering small intimate tours to ensure a richer experience for all. Unlike large tour groups, traveling with a small group allows us more flexibility for authentic experiences.
