Description

Saint Vincent amid history and nature - from the colonial past to the magnificence of its gardens as far as a wild sea that laps a wonderful tropical park where we will cool down and relax.



What we will see
  • Saint Vincent: Fort Charlotte and Botanic Gardens



What we will do
  • The excursion takes us to discover Saint Vincent, with the amazing panoramic view from Fort Charlotte overlooking the Mesopotamia Valley and Botanic Gardens.
  • We head towards Fort Charlotte, a former British military garrison completed in 1806.
  • In Fort Charlotte, a collection of paintings depicting the history of the black Caribs is on display.
  • The cannons and maritime signalling station are still visible and there is a lovely view of the Grenadines to the north of the island, of Kingstown and much more.
  • We then visit the Botanic Gardens, considered the oldest in the western hemisphere.
  • The Gardens cover 8 hectares and are especially enjoyed by nature and gardening lovers who can wander around looking for coconut, bamboo and palm trees.

What you need to know
  • Owing to strong currents, we do not recommend you dive into the Rawacou sea; guests are invited to use the man-made pool instead.
