St Kitts formally known as St Christopher along with Nevis forms a nation. The population is 31,800 humans and over 60,000 green monkeys. The language of most is English and the currency is the East Caribbean dollar. The beer to drink is Carib as it is brewed here from mountain spring water.

This island offers something for everyone. If you like old forts and great views Brimstone Hill is tops. It has rain forests and mountains to climb. It has many of the best beaches, snorkeling, modern shopping, good transportation and to my way of thinking a collection of the best beach bars anywhere.

It is a fun place with friendly people and very comfortable for most tourists. If it has a fault it may be in the future as overbuilding may turn the place into another St Martin. For now it is a visitorís delight. When friends ask me to recommend an island to vacation on this is the first place that comes to mind. I have thoroughly enjoyed every trip I have made to this island.

Ditto Sandra! Well the part about our ship, anyway. I have been to Nevis but not ST Kitts, but it's certainly on the list. These mini tours are great, Tim. Thanks!!!

In 1998 I was on the Amazing Grace in St Kitts. We went snorkeling in an amazing area full of ship wrecks. I found some old pictures and managed to make them into something using Picasa. Enjoy!

It's good to see Wilbur hasn't missed any meals since our last visit. The childrens book they sell there about Wilbur makes a great gift for the grandkids.

Entertainment on St Kitts. The launch took us to this hot spot on the beach.
