In a decision approved by Travel and Leisure Magazine, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines were ranked number five in CNN's 'World's top destinations for 2012.' This decision came about partly because of the pristine area's newfound accessibility following the completion of a major international airport and partly because several all-inclusive resorts were recently built.
