Temperatures average 78 degrees year around. There is no storm season because of the southern Caribbean location.

St. Vincent is reached via connecting flights from Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique or Grenada. The island of St. Vincent is 18 miles long and 11 miles wide and is a lush volcanic island of steep mountain ridges, valleys and waterfalls.

A half mile outside of Kingstown, the capital, is the botanic gardens, founded in 1765. this twenty acre estate was part of a colonial scheme to exchange exotic plants throughout the British empire. The most famous plants are the breadfruit brought in 1793 by Captain Bligh of the H.M.S. Bounty.

The Grenadines consist of a tail of islands and uninhabited cays stretching 45 miles southeast of the "mainland". Connections to the Grenadines are via air from St. Vincent, or by ferry service. These islands all have lovely soft white coral sand beaches and clear waters, ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing.
