At 4,080 feet, this is one hell of a climb. You start at sea level and ascend to the top of this majestic volcano at your own pace. Hire a guide and take some bananas and water with you for power. You are going to need it. Walk slowly and at a good pace. Admire the changing beauty as you climb higher. The forest at one point is dense and rainforest. Eventually everything is drawfed and you are in the alpine forest. When you reach the black cinders, the last extreme part of the climb, you are almost there. Don't go too far or you will fall into the spectacular crater! You are now in the clouds and on top of the world. The ocean can be seen in the distance and the temperature is much cooler than below. Be prepared with a rain poncho or sweatshirt when the sudden burst of rain hits you. Sit back and pat yourself on the back for a breathtaking climb.
Sightseeing in Kingstown the capital city.
Very picturesque as the rest of the Caribbean with British flair and practises. This is an overview of their paliament and official buildings.
One of the nicest beaches. Snorkelling and scuba diving is great but you have to watch the currents.
The botanical gardens are a must see , ( I'm not a botanical kind of guy but) this place will surprise you!
If you go to the St Vincent you shouldn't miss excursion to at least two islands of Grenadines.
There are trave agencies which organize this kind of trips.
