A City that Honors the Past to Preserve the Future

St. Kitts is the epitome of a lush tropical Eden, and likely to stay that way, as a quarter of its land mass is set aside as a national park, and uniquely its rainforest is expanding rather than shrinking.

Capped by a still smoldering volcano, with foothills forming a gently rolling landscape of sugar-cane plantations, its lowland slopes are covered with thick tropical woodland and exotic fruit trees. Wave to chattering monkeys observing from leafy branches as you zip line through the rainforest; snorkel around massive beds of coral, teeming with fish in myriad hues; or just relax on an unspoiled beach, and enjoy another day in paradise.
