Cheap Flights to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

While the name St Vincent and the Grenadines may call up imagery of a tropical paradise fit for a billionaire's yacht, in reality, this archipelago nation is easily a budget destination. It has affordable dollar-ferries taking regular tourists  back and forth from one glittering, gem-like island to another, and inns that serve comforting home-cooked meals. It's a spectacular destination to forget about your problems in, a place where you can to lose yourself in fresh, gurgling waterfalls, cute little lakes and lonely, lush trails up the sides of volcanoes.

The 32 islands that make up this nation aren't even about ritzy, high-end resorts. There are only two reasonably high-end resorts here, at all.

Whether you're a family looking for a low-budget vacation or a backpacker looking for some surfing action, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are for you.

The essentials -- when to come and how

As you might expect of a Caribbean nation, entry, for Canadian citizens requires no visa. All you need are return tickets and money to support yourself during your vacation.

It can be hard to determine when you should come. Certainly, these islands are wonderfully warm from January to May, and it's a great time to visit. The monsoon months of June, July and August aren't necessarily a bad idea, however. This is the season when the country swings into carnival mode, and there is partying on every corner. If you'd like to try the local party scene, this is when you should come. The months of October and November tend to have decent weather, and few tourists. If you'd like to be alone, this is the time that you should consider.

Once you've made up your mind, you should look up an online tool like Skyscanner to determine the lowest prices on everything from flight tickets to hotels and car rentals.

Making the most of your trip

St. Vincent, the largest island of the archipelago, is beautiful, but doesn't shine next to Grenadine and some of the other destinations here. Princess Margaret Beach close to Port Elizabeth is considered the star of the show. on to a dense and mysteriously lush tropical jungle, it's offers a lovely and peaceful experience. Big Sand is one of the prettiest beaches, as well. It's on Richmond Bay and is noted for its backdrop of lush mountains.

If you love the idea of trekking up a slope and catching a pretty little waterfall, you should look for Dark View Falls on the northern edge of Leeward Highway. Set amid the greenest of forests, it's special, indeed.

Wallilabou Falls are even more inviting. The falls come down as 3 separate Little streams and fill a small lake. Surrounded by pretty trees and exotic birds, it's a lovely experience.

St Vincent and the Grenadines really are a tropical paradise. You could spend a lifetime exploring unbelievably beautiful experiences. To get started, however, you do need to come.
