prior to going to st Kitts, I thought I wouldn't like it. there wasn't much that appealed to me in terms of tours. we decided to take a taxi to the beach and hope for the best, worst case scenario go back to the ship early. boy was I wrong! !! took a taxi to south friars beach, I believe we paid $8/pp. our driver stopped along the way for us to take pictures and explained about the island. rented 2 chairs and umbrella at Carambola for $22. it was gorgeous! nice beach and beautiful scenery. some limited snorkeling right off the beach near the pier as well. the bar in the resort was a bit slow as it got busier toward lunch, but that's a minor issue. so glad i was wrong about st. kitts, and I can't wait to go back!!

Last visit, we took a water taxi to Nevis, their sister island. Home of Alexander Hamilton, if you are a history buff, this was fun. There is a museum, and some shops, but a much less populated island than St. Kitts. A 45 minute ride on the water taxi, so go early and get back early. Also, lots of shops in St. Kitts port area. Other must see sights on St. Kitts are Brimstone Fortress and the batik factory. An entrance fee for each, but the views from the top of the fort are amazing. Bring your camera and wear your sneakers for the climb. You won't be disappointed. Batik factory has beautiful clothing and you can see how it is made. Enjoy

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.

Shipwreck Bar & Grill - a must. Beautiful view, free chairs, yummy food & drinks (reasonably priced) ... and MONKEYS!!! Be sure to have your taxi stop at the top of the hill to capture the most breathtaking photo of the Atlantic Ocean meeting the Caribbean.

We did a catamaran and snorkeling excursion. I've only snorkeled from the beach, so this was an awesome experience. Almost had a conniption when I saw my 5 year old granddaughter jump off the side of the boat and I wasn't able to keep up with her after that. LOL.
