Ever been to St. Vincent???
If you ever want to go on a great Caribbean adventure and don’t like the tourist scene, St. Vincent is for you. Cruise ships are few and far between as the volcanic island has a rugged coast all around so it’s not easy for big ships to dock.
St. Vincent is not arid like many of the other Caribbean islands. It’s mountains produce rain clouds so the island has lush, tropical foliage. Crops are terraced throughout the island: most of the produce for the other islands is grown on St. Vincent.
There is a volcano that you can hike up to the edge of the crater. Puffs of smoke come out of domes that are slowly growing. We were taken up by a tour-guide, a Canadian ex-pat, who also provided us with a great vegetarian lunch. It was a hard hike up but the view from the top is spectacular! You can see the whole island and the surrounding ocean.
