Try the Enhanced St. Vincent and the Grenadines Mobile App

Globetrotters seeking a truly off-the-beaten-path getaway filled with quiet azure waters, unspoiled forests, and stunning white sand beaches can take advantage of St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ (SVG) newly upgraded mobile app. 

The free app, which was first launched in April 2011, now provides an even clearer snapshot of the “ins and outs” of this multi-faceted destination. With a more user-friendly interface, coupled with updated iPhone and iPad versions (via the Apple iTunes Store) as well as the Android and a Web app version for all handheld touch devices such as Blackberry available at, eager travelers can discover the true “Vincy” experience on the fly in ways that are now much more accessible.

The upgraded SVG app features a wealth of information on the 32 islands and cays, namely greater content on each of the nine inhabited islands (such as “Where to Stay” and “Where to Dine”). There is also updated contact information on myriad land and sea operators within the country’s niche markets including sailing, diving, soft adventure, and weddings/honeymoons. The app now includes an even wider range of new photography, video, and maps that showcase the different SVG experiences—from beautiful coral reefs seen in the Tobago Cays while diving to major festivals and events like Vincy Mas.

Social media sharing on the app is another enhancement that now exists on a more in-depth platform, linking SVG’s Facebook and Twitter profiles as well as Pinterest page. As the “Critter Capital,” SVG’s app now features an interactive underwater game that allows users to match up some of the rarest underwater creatures to their proper names via “drag and drop” options. The app also boasts media highlights linked to top stories and headlines that rave about this must-visit, idyllic destination.

“For all their charming remoteness, SVG’s 32 islands and cays have something for everyone whether it be the family traveler, the solace and romance-seeker, or the adventurous explorer,” said Glen Beache, CEO of the St. Vincent and The Grenadines Tourism Authority. “The upgraded app does a powerful job communicating that to travelers, as we are always seeking new and engaging ways to draw in potential visitors.”

The enhancement of the mobile app comes at an ideal time when numerous projects have been implemented to transform the tourism industry and make SVG one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean. Chief among them is the construction of the new Argyle International Airport, which will replace the existing ET Joshua Airport. Scheduled for completion in late 2013, the new airport will offer direct international jet service from the U.S., Canada and Europe and will handle more than five times the capacity of the current airport. All of the Argyle International Airport updates and newly created photography have been captured at great length under both the app’s “Airport” and “How To Get There” sections. Travelers can find an array of information on the different airline carriers and gateway cities, while also learning how travel to SVG will soon become much more streamlined.

Other noteworthy SVG developments showcased throughout the app are newly built hotels as well as major renovations of existing resorts. SVG extends a welcoming hand of inborn hospitality to just about every taste and wallet, from intimate-sized, family-owned hotels and boutique properties to private island resorts.

The SVG mobile app was developed by Spring O’Brien, a New York-based public relations and advertising agency. The app can also be accessed via QR Code (a two-dimensional barcode) with the simple click of a button.
