Best luxury hotels in Saint Kitts and Nevis 2022
The Mount Liamuiga volcano is an ubiquitous and dramatic landmark on the horizon of this Caribbean island. Once home to numerous sugar plantations, there are many ruins, distilleries and colonial buildings to explore, as well as a natural landscape of white sand beaches, rainforest covered mountains (home to the Green Velvet Monkey) and a lake of crater. Visit eco-parks and museums detailing St. Kitts’ heritage, take rum and chocolate-making tours, swim with dolphins, and ride the unique narrow-gauge railway to sightsee with the wind in the hair. Although English is the official language, you will also hear the island’s Creole dialect spoken.
