Some refer to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) as “The Old Caribbean.” (in a good way)
Life here in SVG is modern. We have most of the usual amenities of modern society such as satellite television with hundreds of channels, modern supermarkets, good schools, good health care system, good roads, dependable phone service, high-speed internet, etc.
St. Vincent and Grenadines also has fantastic unspoiled beaches, untouched forests and the greatest variety of hummingbirds, parrots and colorful avian species. Our sport fishing is virtually untapped. Boating in our local waters is a joy enhanced by snug harbors and well- equipped marinas. The dive experience will change your life.
The “Old Caribbean” label is a recognition of what we don’t have. Here in St Vincent and the Grenadines islands we don’t have air or water pollution, crime, drugs, bureaucratic corruption and those other dark things that suck the joy out of life. Thanks to our well educated population and stable economy, laying out on a local beach will not be interrupted by pesky peddlers who are desperate to sell you a tee shirt.
If our stunning scenery looks familiar, you probably recognize it as the location where almost the entire first version of Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed on our beaches, in our lagoons and in specially constructed prop villages that still stand and are popular attractions.
As Jack Sparrow might say, Arrrrgggghhh, matey!!
