Mountainous St. Vincent is unique in the country. With its tropical forests, wild parrots and waterfalls it is an eco-traveler’s paradise. The botanical gardens located in Kingstown are the oldest in the western hemisphere and the colonial architecture of the town, with its cobblestone streets and cool arcades are well worth a visit.
