Should we miss St. Vincent's beauty?

Jump to last reply

Needing a little help with final travel plans.
We are staying a week on Union Island and then going to St. Lucia for 5 days. We have a few options for our route via Ferry and flights and are trying to decide whether or not to squeeze in any sightseeing in St. Vincent during our transfer.

Speficially...here's our main question:
How does St. Vincent Falls of Balein rate on the scale when compared to St. Lucia? We'd like to squeeze this in but not sure it's worth the hassle of coordinating it or if we can even find someone to take us in our limited transfer time.

If Balein Falls can't be missed...
then here's the transfer questions:
B. Should we take the Ferry to St. Vincent from Union Island? It's a 4 hour trek...$35 (as compared to $95 flight from Union Island to St. Vincent) Will we see a lot of the beauty of the islands this way?
(Ferry has Arrival St. Vincent at 10am)

C. Caribbean Star has one flight out of St. Vincent(leaves at 5pm and arrives St. Lucia after dark). That gives us 5 hours to see the Falls of Balein. Is this doable?

D. LIAT has so many flights throughout the day we could take our pick on time to leave. Are they more reliable than CS?

D. St. Lucia arrival at night...could be romantic? It's National Day with Festival of Lights celebration....wondering if evening arrival is worth it...we might miss out on the fun. Has anyone experienced this?
We are getting limited info.
