Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

St Vincent and the Grenadines have a typical Caribbean history, except that it was one of the last places in the Caribbean to be settled by European colonizers due to native resistance and pride in their homeland. Nonetheless, the ‘Spice Islands’ was too lucrative to be left alone, and by the 18th century, the country had passed into British hands. St Vincent and the Grenadines have grown steadily since then, eventually gaining independence in 1979. Banana exports and tourism now fuel the country’s economy.

Traditional St Vincent and the Grenadines festivals are mixed with modern celebrations to represent the island’s culture. For example, the Bequia Easter Regatta, a big boat race, is organized to honor the island’s heritage. The annual Carnival, known as the Vincy Mas, celebrates the country’s Caribbean ties. The Nine Days Christmas celebrations showcase traditional culture, while the Mustique Blues Festival is a beautiful example of a modern music festival in action.

It’s no surprise that the country of St Vincent and the Grenadines, which is made up of 32 islands, is passionate about fish and seafood. On the first Friday of every month, the village of Barrouallie on St Vincent’s west coast has a fish festival where visitors may sample the local specialty blackfish (pilot whale). Lambi (queen conch), lobster, squid, and octopus will also be available. Curried goat meat paired with baked breadfruit is the typical West Indian cuisine (a potato flavored and textured tropical fruit).
