    Pros of a Honeymoon in St. Vincent & Grenadines

    It's a well-known fact that the Caribbean is about as close to paradise as one can get, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines is certainly proof of that. St. Vincent and the Grenadines' reef-lined Bequia island is just one of the region's globally recognised sailing destinations. Pair this with the stunning La Soufriere volcano and endless locations for snorkeling, diving and other watersports, and the fun is nearly endless. And if that wasn't enough, the bustling local town of Kingstown is a treat to behold, with boutiques, local markets and duty-free shops aplenty.

    Cons of a Honeymoon in St. Vincent & Grenadines

    Although English is the official language spoken in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, outside of the main tourist spots, most locals speak Vincentian Creole. That means bartering on products or venturing to experience more traditional restaurants might take a little more patience and some creative sign language.

    We recommend visiting St. Vincent and the Grenadines between February and April to chase away the winter blues and avoid any rainfall. That being said, this is a location that enjoys a tropical climate with glorious warmth all year round, so if you're looking to immerse yourselves in Caribbean culture and celebration, then Vincy Mas is an absolute must. Spread over 12 days at the end of June/beginning of July, Vincy Mas is a true celebration packed with historical meaning and cultural pride—think a steel pan masquerade and calypso songs.
