Carriacou scenery conservation tripGeographically, the island is located northeast of Grenada and is the largest island in the Grenada Grenadines chain.  It is largely hilly, with forested and tropical vegetation as well as some beautiful stretching sandy beaches, particularly on the eastern coast.

On average the temperatures are always high across the country and the abundance of water is a consequence of considerable precipitation.  In fact, rainfall occurs across January, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December, with perhaps the wettest month being November and high humidity also characterising the months. Temperatures averaging 29°C are pretty constant for midday across the year, however, there can be slightly higher readings in the lowlands.  At night, these temperatures drop to a range of between 19°C and 24°C.
