This would be a green happy face if not for one thing. Although in general the people were beautiful and the place was gorgeous, be warned-you will see monkeys that are trained to take pictures with people and for the most part they are very well taken care of, but I did see one handler that was mentally unstable and he was physically abusing the poor little baby monkey he kept tied up, making her scream and try helplessly to get away from him, which utterly broke my heart. If you see him, DO NOT pay him!! He is known by the locals as "Chazzy," a large, heavy set black man who steals tips left on tables by using the monkey and also tries to con tourists by taking pictures before he tells them the price-and he charges double what everyone else does. The other monkey handlers were super cool and very kind to their monkeys, I just had to make this review in hopes that it might possibly help prevent more monkeys from being abused. Thank you for your attention.

Beware of the crazy monkey people. We got ripped off. Charged us $20 bucks, didn't even ask if we wanted to hold the monkey, just shoved it in our face and then used our camera to take the picture and charged us.

The fort was awesome! There was no "excursion" offered to just go the fort, but it was easy to find a driver at the port & relatively inexpensive.

The catamaran cruise to Nevis and snorkeling along the way was perhaps the BEST shore excursion we've ever done. The crew on this boat definitely knows how to throw a party and make their guests feel welcome!!

The baby monkeys that the men have on their shoulders are adorable but the way they get them away from the mother's is terrible. There is a little sanctuary at Ship Wreck Cove that feeds the monkeys and you can get pictures there. There are sooo cute!!!
