General

St Vincent is just 389sq km, with a population of just over 100,000 and forms part of the collection of islands known as St Vincent and the Grenadines. The Arnos Vale Ground as only hosted one Test - West Indies v Sri Lanka in 1997, but is a regular venue on the ODI circuit.

Grounds
Arnos Vale is the only international stadium on the Island, but club grounds are dotted around the island

Opposition
Limited, but clubs should be able to organise reasonable fixtures

Entertainment
St Vincent does not have a huge nightlife scene but there is the usual array of live music. However, there is plenty of fill your time during the day especially with the excellent scuba diving facilities.

Conclusion
Not the first choice for a club tour of the Caribbean, but there is a not really a bad destination in this part of the world. St Vincent has its own attractions and is suitable to those seeking a quieter tour.
