For 2024, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is already one of the most sought-after spring break locations.
SVG’s debut in this market coincides with the US government’s call for its residents to think twice before traveling to the Bahamas and Jamaica, two popular spring break destinations that the US recently released a travel advisory warning travelers of the increase in violence and the number of deaths in both countries.

According to the U.S. government, St. Vincent has a “level one” travel alert, so visitors need to take the standard precautions they would on any trip.
Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, Barbados, British Virgin Islands (Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke), Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, Little Cayman), (St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas), Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Sint Maarten, and United States Virgin Islands are some other nations that are deemed safe for travel during spring break.
When the Colgate College spring team started coming to Fort Lauderdale for training in the early 1930s, that is when spring break first appeared. Soon after, swimmers started traveling from around the nation to compete in events held in and near Florida. College students from throughout the nation began to go south in the 1950s to spend their summers close to the seaside.
