The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) islands report they are currently experiencing the most severe dengue fever outbreak in its recent history.

In its latest official bulletin dated 20 October 2020, the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment has confirmed an increase in reported cases of dengue infection in the country with 1,155 laboratory confirmed cases of dengue fever recorded and six fatalities.

The last outbreak in the SVG islands was in 2012 when 200 cases were reported.

The mosquito borne disease continues to affect all health districts, but most reported cases have been reported in the Pembroke, Kingstown, Calliaqua and Georgetown Health Districts.

Since the 2012 outbreak, the government has upgraded its surveillance and control system although it is understood that activities to control dengue both locally and regionally have been only moderately effective as vector control programs are costly and difficult to sustain. Additionally, given the COVID-19 context in country, it is feared that this dengue outbreak could expand considerably without appropriate and timely intervention.

Safety and security

Safety and security

Crime

Petty crime, such as property being stolen from anchored yachts, occurs. Ensure that your personal belongings, including your passports and other travel documents, are secure at all times.

Road safety

Road conditions are generally adequate. Mountain roads are narrow and steep, with few guardrails or markings. Roadside assistance isn’t widely available. Exercise caution, particularly after dark. Drive defensively at all times.

Public transportation

Taxis and buses are relatively safe, but can be overcrowded and frequently travel at excessive speeds. You should look for taxis with a “tourism approved” logo in the windscreen.

Swimming

Exercise caution when swimming, due to strong currents and undertow, especially around Mount Wynne, Trinity Falls and Warriacou. Don’t swim alone, after hours or outside marked areas. Avoid deserted and unpatrolled beaches after dark.

Trekking

If you intend on trekking:

  • never do so alone and always hire an experienced guide from a reputable company for mountain expeditions to the northern part of Saint Vincent, as there is limited police presence in the area (notably in Falls of Baleine, Soufrière and Trinity Falls)
  • buy travel insurance that includes helicopter rescue and medical evacuation
  • ensure that your physical condition is good enough to meet the challenges of your activity
  • ensure that you are properly equipped and well informed about weather and other conditions that may pose a hazard
  • inform a family member or friend of your itinerary, including when you expect to be back to camp
  • know the symptoms of acute altitude sickness, which can be fatal
  • obtain detailed information on trekking routes or ski slopes before setting out and do not venture off marked trails or slopes
  • Ask for valid “tourism approved” identification from the guide operator.

Entry/exit requirements

COVID-19 – Entry, exit and transit restrictions and requirements

In an attempt to limit the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), most governments have implemented special entry and exit restrictions and requirements for their territory. While some countries have started to ease some of these measures, most remain in place.

Before travelling, verify if the local authorities of both your current location and destinations have implemented any specific restrictions or requirements related to this situation. Consider even your transit points, as many destinations have implemented strict transit rules which could disrupt your travel.

These could include:

  • entry bans, particularly for non-residents
  • exit bans
  • quarantines of 14 days or more upon arrival, some in designated facilities, at your own cost
  • health screenings and certificates as well as proof of adequate travel health insurance
  • travel authorization documents to be obtained before you travel
  • border closures
  • airport closures
  • flight suspensions to/from certain destinations, and in some cases, all destinations
  • suspensions or reductions of other international transportation options

Additional restrictions can be imposed suddenly. Airlines can also suspend or reduce flights without notice. Your travel plans may be severely disrupted, making it difficult for you to return home. You should not depend on the Government of Canada for assistance related to changes to your travel plans.

  • Monitor the media for the latest information
  • Contact your airline or tour operator to determine if the situation will disrupt your travel plans
  • Contact the nearest foreign diplomatic office for information on destination-specific restrictions

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Appoints New Tourism Minister

600x400.jpg

St. Vincent and the Grenadines named Carlos James the nation’s minister of tourism, civil aviation, sustainable development and culture following national elections last week.

James succeeds Cecil McKie who had served as minister of tourism, sports and culture since 2012. McKie retired from politics this month, said government representatives in a statement.

ADVERTISING

James identified Virgin Atlantic Airlines’ launch of service to Argyle International Airport in June of 2021 and the upcoming launch of properties from Marriott International, Holiday Inn Express and Beaches Resorts as “major projects that are coming on stream both on St. Vincent the mainland and also in the Grenadines” and priorities for territory’s tourism development. “This is going to be an exciting time,” James said.

Tiny St. Vincent is among the least-visited Caribbean destinations, attracting a relatively minuscule 72,983 visitors in 2019, according to Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) data.

Yet that figure represented a 6.7 percent increase over 2018. The international airport’s 2017 debut after nearly a decade in development sets the stage for tourism expansion in the southern Caribbean archipelago. St. Vincent also hosted 191,789 cruise passengers last year, a robust 11.9 percent increase.

The territory is noted for exceptional natural beauty and rare endemic plants and bird species. St. Vincent’s Botanical Gardens are described by tourism officials as the Western Hemisphere’s oldest.

Located in the Kingstown region, the gardens are dedicated to the conservation of rare species and feature features peaceful, lush and colorful gardens filled with tropical plants, flowers, trees and aviaries where guests can see the St. Vincent parrot, the national bird.

Under the territory’s COVID-19 travel protocols, U.S. travelers must complete a pre-arrival form and arrive with a negative Covid-19 test administered no more than seven days prior to arrival.

Travelers are also required to re-test upon arrival and quarantine for five days in a St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority-approved hotel. Visitors will be re-tested on days four and day five and continue to quarantine for nine to 16 days or until a test result is negative.

However, crimes of opportunity such as petty larceny, burglary, automobile break-ins; as well as incidents of violent crime, such as murder, sexual assault, robbery, shootings, and drug related crimes do occasionally occur. As you would in any major metropolitan area of the U.S., use the below personnel security measures while traveling:

  • Do not leave valuables unattended in public areas, on beaches, unsecured in hotel rooms, or in rental homes.
  • Avoid walking alone, especially at night, on beaches, and in isolated or poorly lit locations.
  • Go out in groups or with a companion and restrict nighttime activities to established safe and reputable venues.
  • Use only clearly marked taxis and avoid rides with strangers.
  • Stick to well-lit and well-traveled routes.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Vacation Packages

Like many of its Caribbean counterparts, this 32-island chain features secluded beaches, tiny cays and colorful coral reefs. Unlike other areas, it has few tourists. Find charming destinations not heavily frequented by cruise ships on the chain of 32 islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The forested volcanic islands, white beaches and coral reefs here are as beautiful as any on the more popular Caribbean islands. St. Vincent and the Grenadines feel peaceful and secluded due to the lack of tourists. Relax here on a tiny cay that seems truly apart from the bustle of civilization.

St. Vincent is the chain’s largest and main island. The much smaller island of Bequia features some of the best beaches on miles of secluded shoreline, yet it has an area of only 7 square miles (18 square kilometers). Cool off in the calm waters of Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay Beach, both of which open onto the bay of Port Elizabeth on the island’s west side. Afterward, enjoy inexpensive seafood meals. When the wind shifts, discover isolated Industry Bay on the island’s northeast side.

Spend at least one day snorkeling or diving in the islands’ coral reefs. St. Vincent’s Bat Cave is a great spot for experienced divers. This deep, dark opening in seaside cliffs opens to a popular roosting place for bats. Watch the flying mammals flitting above as you explore the cave’s waters. Take a boat to the Tobago Cays, five tiny islands in the middle of the Grenadines surrounded by Horseshoe Reef.

Explore St. Vincent for the country’s best inland pleasures. Kingstown, the capital, is a lively Caribbean port. Visit on Saturdays to see the town’s daily market at its busiest and purchase fresh and juicy local melon. Trek into the rainforest-covered interior of the island, where you can climb up the cone and into the crater of the active La Soufriere Volcano.

Fly into St. Vincent and the Grenadines via the international airport just outside Kingstown. Navigate between the islands by hiring a boat and crew or renting your own sailboat or motorboat.

We make it easy for everyone to travel, with St. Vincent and the Grenadines vacation packages starting from just $770. You’ll have the flexibility to combine your favorite hotels, airlines and car rental.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Travel Guide

beach-palm-island-st-vincent-caribbean_980x650.jpg

A string of 32 islands and cays comprises the nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. St. Vincent is one of the least touristy islands in the Caribbean—an unpretentious and relatively quiet island where fishermen get up at the crack of dawn to drop their nets into the sea, working people conduct business in town, and farmers work their crops in the countryside.

Hotels and inns on St. Vincent are almost all small, locally owned and operated, and definitely not glitzy. So far, there are only two large resorts—one on a quiet bay north of Kingstown and another on a private island 600 feet from the mainland. Restaurants (other than at St. Vincent’s two resort properties) serve mainly local food—grilled fish, stewed or curried chicken, rice, and “provisions” (root vegetables). And the beaches are either tiny crescents of black or brown sand on remote leeward bays or sweeping expanses of the same black sand pounded by Atlantic surf.

Independent travelers interested in active, eco-friendly vacations are discovering St. Vincent’s natural beauty, its sports opportunities on land and sea, and the richness of its history. They spend their vacation walking or hiking St. Vincent’s well-defined jungle trails, catching a glimpse of the rare St. Vincent parrot in the Vermont Valley, exploring exotic flora in the Botanic Gardens, delving into history at Ft. Charlotte, and climbing the active volcano La Soufrière. Underwater, the snorkeling and scuba landscapes are similarly intriguing.

The Grenadines, on the other hand, dazzle vacationers with amazing inns and resorts, fine white-sand beaches, excellent sailing waters, and a get-away-from-it-all atmosphere.

Bequia, just south of St. Vincent and an efficient hour’s voyage by frequent ferry service, has many inns, hotels, restaurants, shops, and activities; it’s a popular vacation destination in its own right. Bequia’s Admiralty Bay is one of the prettiest anchorages in the Caribbean. With superb views, snorkeling, hiking, and swimming, the island has much to offer the international mix of backpackers, landlubbers, and sailors who frequent its shores.

South of Bequia, on the exclusive and very private island of Mustique, elaborate villas are tucked into lush hillsides. Mustique does not encourage wholesale tourism, least of all to those hoping for a glimpse of the rich and famous who own or rent villas here. The appeal of Mustique is its seclusion.

Boot-shape Canouan is mostly quiet and unspoiled with only 1,200 or so residents but nevertheless a busy venue for chartered yachts. It also accommodates well-heeled guests of the villa community and resort that take up the entire northern third of the island along with one of the Caribbean’s most challenging and scenic golf courses.

Tiny Mayreau (fewer than 200 residents) has one of the area’s most beautiful (and unusual) beaches. At Saltwhistle Bay, the Caribbean Sea is usually as calm as a mirror; just yards away, the rolling Atlantic surf washes the opposite shore. Otherwise, Mayreau has a single unnamed village, one road, rain-caught drinking water, and an inn—but no airport, no bank, and no problems!

Union Island, with its dramatic landscape punctuated by Mt. Taboi, is the transportation center of the southern Grenadines. Its small but busy airport serves landlubbers, and its yacht harbor and dive operators serve sailors and scuba divers. Clifton, the quaint main town, has shops, restaurants, and a few guesthouses. Ashton, the second significant town, is mainly residential.

Meanwhile, it took decades to turn the 100-acre, mosquito-infested mangrove swamp called Prune Island, a virtual stone’s throw from Union Island, into the upscale private resort now known as Palm Island. Today, well-heeled vacationers lounge on the island’s five palm-fringed white-sand beaches.

Petit St. Vincent, another private resort island, was reclaimed from the overgrowth by the late Hazen K. Richardson II. The luxury resort’s cobblestone cottages are so private that, if you wish, you could spend your entire vacation completely undisturbed.

And finally, there are the Tobago Cays, five uninhabited islands south of Canouan and east of Mayreau that draw snorkelers, divers, and boaters. Surrounded by a shallow reef, the tiny islands have rustling palm trees, pristine beaches with powdery sand, the clearest water imaginable in varying shades of brilliant blue, and plenty of resident fish and sea turtles.

The islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines are fairly close together. Whether you go by boat or by plane, traveling between them is not difficult. And each island is unique—once there, you’ll definitely want to sample more than one.
