Where is St. Vincent & the Grenadines?
This beautiful island is located in the southern part of the Caribbean, from Canada it's close to a six hour flight and from the UK it's about 10 hours or so non-stop.
We are so excited that St. Vincent aka SVG has their own international airport now, Argyle International Airport. I am so pleased about that and it's looking fabulous and most major airlines can take you straight there.
Every time we visit SVG we have the most amazing time, SVG has so much to offer, from the mainland itself and the Grenadine islands that follow it. This particular time we went, we stayed mostly on the mainland and visited one of the Grenadine islands, Young Island.
The temperature in SVG is always hot and very hot, so there will be no disappointment with weather.
If it does happen to rain, it honestly is just a cool down from the day and goes straight back to being hot again.
The sun, sea and sand work so well there together you will feel so rejuvenated when you return back home.
We visited a place in St. Vincent called the Botanical Gardens located in Kingstown (their capital city) as the locals call it 'Tong' (town) kind of like 'down town'.
'Tong' in SVG is full of daily life markets, shops, tourism boats and wonderful locals who are wonderful to talk and laugh with. Everyone there really treats you like family; its a wonderful way of easy living.
There is not much you cannot find at the local market. Plenty of everything to eat and to indulge on.
The Botanical Gardens is the most amazing place, filled with flowers, trees and green scenery, you may hire a guide to show and explain all the wonders and magnificent uses of all the plants and trees.
The picture above is us standing underneath a beautiful alter of trees and flowers, this place also performs wedding ceremonies and receptions.
They have a beautiful pond gazebo surrounded by water lilies and tiny fish; just beautiful.
The guide at the Gardens are very informative and accommodating. The tour is just under an hour and you'll notice some entertainment, vendors along the way and the national bird of St. Vincent the Amazona Guildingii.
There is so much more to this island than people know.
The 'Visiting Young Island' blog will be upcoming, please be sure to keep a look out for that one.
I hope you enjoyed this one. St. Vincent is definitely a place to put on your vacation list.
