First Impressions-It's not for Everyone

Once you arrive on Bequia (via ferry from St. Vincent or propeller plane from Barbados) you will realize you are someplace very special. There are NO highrises, NO cruiseship dock, NO KFC, NO traffic jams, NO tourist traps only the island of Bequia in all of her natural beauty with her friendly 5000 residents. If you are the type of traveller that can't live without the homogenized tourist hub-bub that has seemed to infect many a Caribbean island take this advice, Bequia is NOT for you. You are still intrigued with the idea of Bequia? Please let me attempt to enlighten you with my observations and opinions I brought home from Bequia.

    Alison, We stayed there for two nights and you are right, Cilla is wonderful. We loved the SugarApple Inn for it's location and Beach. The goats, cows, and dogs sang us to sleep. No airconditioning was no problem. The large windows were wonderful.

    Looks like a great place, Alison. Was the lack of air conditioning a problem? The thought of the Caribbean w/o a/c freaks me, but if someone from Maine is OK, then maybe it's not so bad. : )
