Saint Kitts and Nevis On a Budget
Saint Kitts and Nevis are a pair of islands that are one third of the way between Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago. They're both volcanic islands and are divided by a 3 kilometer wide channel that is referred to as The Narrows. The highest point between the two islands is Mount Liamuiga, which is on Saint Kitts and stands 1,156 meters high.

Many people visit this country because of its unique natural beauty and diversity. There are many tropical birds that are almost exclusively present on the islands. There are also several famous species of monkeys that some say were introduced by the pirates. It's now possible to visit the stunning Turtle Beach on a recently completed road. There you can experience the Caribbean for all that it has to offer.

The climate of this country is tropical. There is an almost constant sea breeze that keeps visitors cool and comfortable. There is also little seasonal temperature variation but their is a rainy season between May and November.

Whether you're visiting this island country to relax, swim, dive or have an adventure, you won't be disappointed. There are plenty of peaceful retreats where you can escape it all. There are also many different water sports available. Diving sites are impressive and the water is clear and comfortable in temperature.
At A Glance
  • There are several ways to travel around the islands. Taxis and buses are common but you should negotiate your rate for a taxi before committing to the trip. Confirm what currency you will pay with. There are several car rental agencies on the islands or you could hire a tour guide who will provide you with transportation. Your cheapest option is to travel by microbus. This is the public transportation system of the country. You can flag down the bus anywhere on the route and if the bus is full the driver will flash his lights. There is also a scenic railroad tour that takes people through parts of the narrow gauge railroad that was once used for the sugar mill.

  • English is the official language of the islands. In reality, many locals speak a Creole language that is based on English but sounds very different. That being said, most people working in the tourist industry will speak clear and understandable English.

  • Many people head to the Caribbean for its world renowned diving. There are many diving sites near the islands and there is something for everybody. Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginner, you'll have a range of places to explore. There are plenty of reefs, ship wrecks and caves, so the diversity is quite impressive.

  • St. Kitts has mountains that offer some excellent hiking opportunities. Trails take you through the tropical rain forest, but these trails are often poorly marked, so you may benefit from hiring a guide. There are also shorter rain forest walks on well maintained trails above Romney Manor. A more challenging hike is on the rim of the mile wide crater on Mt. Liamuiga. The views here are incredible.
