St. Kitts, a Caribbean island whose neighbors include Barbados to the south and Puerto Rico to the north, is known for its exotic beauty and tropical weather. Once a battleground for European control of the West Indies, now St. Kitts is only as dangerous as the inactive volcano (Mt. Liamuiga) that lies at its center.
The capital city of St. Kitts, Basseterre, blends Creole and West Indian architecture for a charming atmosphere as you stroll through Independence Square and Liverpool Row. During Christmas, the island’s culture shines through in its celebration of Carnival, featuring Moko-Jumbies (stilt-walkers), masquerade performers and clown troupes.
