St. Kitts

St. Kitts has the best of what the Caribbean has to offer: endless sun, warm, clear water, and white sandy beaches. One quarter of the land on the island has been set aside as a national park, with rainforest that is expanding, rather than contracting. Divers and snorkelers delight at seeing huge swaths of coral teeming with fish of every color, and adventurous souls can climb to the top of dormant volcanoes.
