There are a lot of interesting plants in this garden but you'll probably need a guide to describe them to you. The cinnamon tree, the smelly sock tree. Also you can see the island bird here. It's a pretty garden and not very big. Entrance fees are like $4 US pp and you are expected to tip the guide, but he is not required to walk around the garden....more
What better thing to do on a Caribbean island than visit the film site of the Pirates of the Caribbean? We had lunch at the restaurant on site and it was FABULOUS! Our taxi/tour guide guy suggested we eat there. I had the Fish Creole and my husband had BBQ pork. Local lunch and a cold beer for $10 US incl. tip? My kinda place!!more
When you travel on the road to Kingstown from the airport you will cross this place...which has an amazing view of the Indian Bay, the airport run way and the famous cricket ground (this is not an international ground, but will be used for practice matches during the worldcup 2007)more
At the black tunnel beach/point there is a tunnel made thru the mountain....which was built some 100 years ago to transport sugar from this side to the other side of the jetty very fast and it can be loaded on ships easily during low tide days...it cost around 5000 pounds to make this tunnel (during those days!!!) I have been told this place has...more
This little "gem" was clean and had fantastic local food. I explained my quest for local cuisine to the owner, Sindy, and she proceded to make me a special feast with a sampling of all sorts of things that I had never tried anywhere before. Not only that, she even wrote down what they all were and was the best hostess/owner I've met in a very long...more
This restaurant is part of the Barefoot Yacht Charters/Hotel complex. We only went there for dinner. Looks like they have a great bar. A place for the yachties to hang out. It's on a hill with a nice view. We ordered pizza. My BBQ chicken pizza was very thick crust, not enough sauce and was there chicken on it? My husband had the meatlovers pizza....more
This restaurant is on the film site of The Pirates of the Caribbean. Our cab driver/tour guide suggested we dine here for lunch. The server tells you what they have. I had Creole Fish and my husband had BBQ pork. They were both FABULOUS! With a beer and tip it was only $10 US pp. Right on the water! Fabulous breeze. Be careful you don't get...more
When we asked the locals about any liming place, they told us St.Vincent is very poor in nightlife but you can visit to the place called 'Iguana' on a Friday night. So we were there around 10:30pm on a Friday. Surprised to me there were only 5 people liming...so thought of going back to the hotel and sleep. The next morning one of the supervisors...more

So one thing that you may find helpful is that this small airport, and it is pretty small, has free wireless. This was a life saver, as I was stuck waiting and I was able to easily contact friends to let them know I was running late. Here is some info about the airport incase your wonderingAirport Code: SVD Airport Name: E.T. Joshua International...more
If you fall for this island like I did it makes it hard to explore new places because this one is always beckoning
Swimwear and casual evening dress are a must. It is hot away from the water most of the year and cooler in the evenings
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen and insect repellent. Insects vary but can be troublesome in the evening.
Photo Equipment: I don't need to tell you travel buffs to bring a camara
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Snorkle, flippers, and mask are handy. If you dive bring your dive card.
La Soufiere is an active valcano in St.Vincent which is about 4000ft. above the sea level Try a hilke to this place, if you are really good in health. The hike take approx. 2-3 hrs...its really a tough hike for many. You will feel great relaxation and the worth of the hike once you reach the mouth of the valcano. The view is absolutely...more
I was there was a lot of fabulous shallow diving, 25 - 40 feet. Didn't go this time myself but I took a picture of a supposed dive site. Used to be a leper bath directly below the old Fort Charlotte. Have fun!
