Our Eco Center

Welcome to the Authentic Caribbean!

The Richmond Vale Nature and Hiking Center is located close to several nature walks, waterfalls as well as the beach.

The Center is situated on the North Leeward Coast of mainland St. Vincent. During the English colonial times it was an estate used for various export crops such as sugar, copra (coconut oil), banana and arrowroot. The Center consists of a total of 4000 sq.m. (43,000 sq. feet) of buildings and is situated on a hill above the Wallibou River, overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

We have several verandas, a fitness center and a common area with a dining hall. Most of the food is grown organic and bought local. The intensive vegetable garden, herb garden and forest garden are just a few steps away and we offer garden tours. Water for the garden is harvested from the roofs of the center, the hot water and electricity comes from solar energy. The waste water is recycled through a grey water system.

What to do at our center;

  • Hike the La Soufriere Volcano
  • Scuba Diving
  • Swim in the ocean
  • Trail Walking
  • Bird Watching
  • Yoga and Meditation
  • Absolutely nothing..
