Etiquette

St Vincent is socially interesting, being at once conservative but also very laid-back. Locals on the main island are less outgoing than those in the Grenadines, who are far more accustomed to outsiders.

  • Greetings Social situations do not involve much contact, although a handshake is normal in business situations.
  • Drinking When out drinking the norm is to buy rounds; this is especially true with groups of men.
