St Vincent is a place for adventurous spirits of all kinds It’s is a string of 32 islands in the Southern Caribbean with primal forests, unspoiled palm fringed beaches, virgin reefs and definitely outside mass tourism, thank God.
The main island is home to a volcano, so it’s hilly and great for cycling. St. Vincent has ancient history: he explore archeology. St. Vincent is known as a sailor’s paradise. So he sails. And all without tourists in sight. Great while it lasts.
