Saint Vincent Things to Do

  • Botanical Gardens, St. Vincent

    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....

  • Wallilabou, St. Vincent

    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!!

Saint Vincent Restaurants

  • If you like local food --

    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...

  • Casual dinner, St. Vincent

    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....

Saint Vincent Nightlife

  • Iguana

    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...

Saint Vincent Transportation

  • Free WiFi

    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...

    The only way to get to Young Isle from St Vincent is the island boat- unless you are a strong swimmer but your luggage will get wet.The boat is always ready to deliver one to or from the island. At first arrival to Young island greetings are with a tropical drink.

Saint Vincent What to Pack

    by trvlnurse Updated Aug 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: 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.

  • Wildlife

    Wild peacocks(and I assume peahens), an interesting fish pond, parrots, lizards, and salamanders begging for food are just some of the unusual (to me) wild life on the resort.

    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!
