Visit St. Vincent and the Grenadine Islands for some volcanic fun - Image

St. Vincent and the Grenadines are an excellent location for vacationers looking to escape the advancing fall and winter cold. The islands maintain an average temperature of just below 80 degrees Fahrenheit and remain around this temperature even in January. Visitors to this location would do best by purchasing some form of Canadian travel insurance as a way to safeguard against unforeseeable occurrences.

The difference between St. Vincent and most other Caribbean nations is that the main island sits atop an active volcano. This formation lends a different quality to this Caribbean destination and visitors are encouraged to try and climb the steep slope of La Soufriere. Once at the top, hikers can swim in the crater lake or just enjoy the spectacular view from more than 4,000 feet high. 

Other popular activities on the island include enjoying the beaches and pristine turquoise water. Snorkeling in the reefs can be enjoyable for travellers of all ages. Also available are tours of the many locations where humpbacks whales can be seen during certain seasons. At any time an opportunity can reach out and grab those who come to St. Vincent for any type of excursion.
