THE best island in the Caribbean! | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Hi all,
I have been all over the Caribbean and have found a place so amazing I moved from CO. USA to St. Vincent. Yes St. Vincent. To start with, this island has not been "found" yet. No big resorts, no crowds, no overpriced all inclusive roped off retreats. This is the Caribbean the way it used to be. The way its suppose to be. Modern in every way including digital world cable TV and water that is safe to drink from the tap. People here are friendly and welcoming to tourists and helpful. No hassles or high-pressures. The beaches are of every color including the powder-soft black sands of our exotic windward coast. The reefs here have not been destroyed and are thriving and teaming with life. The reefs are easily accessible right from the beaches and do not require a boat trip to get to them. Most of the reefs are shallow, between 2 and 40 feet meaning you see more and don’t need to rent dive gear or be certified to see "the good stuff" .The island is an agricultural mecca providing the worlds best tropical fruits & veggies. The ocean a bounty. The food here is fresh, and full of flavor. The exchange rate has been fixed to the US dollar since 1979 at a rate of $1US = $2.67EC and the European and American markets have not driven the prices out of the reach of the locals. The island is also very mountainous giving shelter to itself and providing some of the richest rain-forest in the world. Hidden waterfalls and amazing vistas are only some of its gems. There are no poisonous animals or reptiles on the island and although iguanas exist they are very rarely scene. Being tricky to get to has kept St.Vincent secret but in 2012 they get an international airport. Things will change. Hopefully in contained ways so it works for all. As for now we have what most islands don’t and that’s just perfect.

Thanks for the post and the link. It’s on my list of islands I have not been to and very much want to go. I appreciate the info on ‘reasonable’ prices and will make an extra effort to do more research.I’m desperately wanting to find somewhere that has not been destroyed by tourists but still is affordable.

I’d love to hear more on the differences in accommodation and prices (generalizations are all I want) between the islands.

I see this is old thread but I was interested to see if any of you traveled to St. Vincent after zainnaeem left this post. I looked at island and it is very far but as zainnaeem mentioned it could be very charming as not too many travelers go there. I guess there is still not too many all inclusive resorts build and official language of St. Vincent is English. Could be nice place to relax and escape everything.

I came across some pics of SVG, without knowing where they were taken, but I was in awe! When I found out it was SVG, I made a note to myself to go there one day.

We liked Antigua a lot when we were there, a few weeks ago, so maybe we can island hop and make it a combination trip sometime in the future.
