Spend a week exploring the hidden gem of the Caribbean – Montserrat. Known as the Emerald Isle, this small island was knocked down by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, then again by a series of eruptions at the Soufriere Hills volcano beginning in 1995. Knocked down but not out, Montserrat is mounting a comeback and offers visitors a unique opportunity to witness devastation and recovery, side by side.
During this six day/five night package you will visit the Volcano Observatory to view a history of the eruptions and the devastation they have wrought. Although the capital city of Plymouth, destroyed by an eruption in 1997, is off limits to visitors by land, you can view this modern day Pompeii from a variety of vantage points on the island as well as up close and personal with a guided boat tour that takes you just meters from shore.
While the southern portion of the island remains buried in ash, the north blooms with color. Opportunities abound for hiking through lush rainforests and swimming in crystal clear waters teeming with life. Local guides will lead you on adventures through fields of heliconia to find the Montserrat Oriole and the Mountain Chicken, a nearly extinct species of frog found only in Montserrat & Dominica. Kayak tours along the Leeward Coast of Montserrat provide ample opportunities for snorkeling on secluded beaches and exploration of our world famous bat cave, home of the endangered fruit bat. A trip to another nearby extinct volcanic island for hiking or diving completes your experience.
After a full day of exploration, relax in the privacy of your own vacation villa, perched atop the hills overlooking the volcano and the Caribbean Sea. Tradewinds Real Estate will ensure that you have everything you need to make your villa experience a pleasure!
