Barbados has direct flights to international cities such as Miami, New York and London. Persons travelling via these cities will need an entry visa even for transiting purposes. Please check in your countries about US or UK visa regulations with respect to your country. Participants will be responsible for their own travel arrangements to Barbados.
An alternative is to arrive in Puerto Rico on August 7th and take what is called a side trip between Barbados and Puerto Rico between August 8-11th on LIAT, a regional airline. LIAT would give you the opportunity to stop for a day in another Caribbean island at your own cost before returning to Puerto Rico.
A valid passport with at least 6 months before its expiry date is required to enter all these countries.
Please visit http://www.barbados.org/docs_requirements.htm to find out if nationals of your country need a visa to enter Barbados.
