St Vincent and The Grenadines is a dream destination. When you think about the perfect holiday, what you picture in your mind is a white sand beach with palms, a beautiful sun and no stress, right? So this is definitely the perfect place for you!
And I am also sure it’s the perfect place for me as well: I am a lover of islands in general, and this trip fits me like a glove after spending 5 months in the Italian Alps where it didn’t stop snowing until the end of April.
I’m not going to lie, I didn’t have a clue about where the state of St Vincent and The Grenadine was, and you?
To answer any question you may have on this, here is some information about this unique place:
Located in the Caribbean Sea, St Vincent and The Grenadines is an island country among the Lesser Antilles that numbers about 125 islands.
This country is not only about sea and palms - I’m going to have an amazing tour across the archipelago, from the ocean to the heights of a volcano, crossing the colorful fields of a magnificent botanical garden.
Do you feel like jumping on board? Follow me on this fantastic itinerary!
