I recently came across some amazing St. Vincent Villas for under $5,000 per week.
Personally, when traveling with my young family, we prefer vacation rentals to traditional hotels. We like the extra space, the privacy and the ability to cook and store our own food.
Bequia has been an exceptionally fun destination for me to discover. I am now officially infatuated with all of St. Vincent and the Grenadines! This far-flung corner of the Caribbean is the absolute antithesis of the Atlantis/Bahamas touristy experience for which some parts of the Caribbean are known. And this authentic, low-key element is exactly what I love.
I’ve done more African safaris in my day than I can count. They all start with some sort of transfer from the International airport upon arrival in your destination to a hot, sticky-slow structure that vaguely passes as an airport where you board you teeny tiny airplane to your final destination. I’m getting the sense that a week at the beach on Bequia might just have the same beginning. But that’s all part of the excitement and adventure!
Here at A Week at the Beach, I blog about one thing only; a perfect week at a perfect beach that is easy to get to from the U.S.
Why? The experience of a rejuvenating week at the beach is something that people are seeking more and more. This may not be their big trip for the year by any means (Africa, Eastern Europe, off-the-beaten-path South America are all hot long-haul destinations for Americans right now), but this simple week at the beach is important.
