Saint Kitts Island, the secret of the Caribbean

Hey Guys

I think it is time to bring you one more Caribbean post, I am tired of winter posts ;)

One of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean is Saint Kitts or also called Saint Christopher, it has volcanic peaks with lush green forests and endless sugar cane fields, it offers some of the Caribbean's more dramatic panoramas.

We arrived with PO cruises to the charming capital Basseterre that features many historic buildings. The island has about 45,000 inhabitants and Basseterre is the largest town with 15,500.
Let me show you some beautiful views of the island, one of the good things of being in a balcony room on the deck 15 is that I could make panoramic pictures that they look like aerial photos.








   One of the most popular tourist attractions on the island is St Kitts Railway  or also called The Sugar Train, it is a double decker train that takes you all the way around the main coastline, on narrow gauge tracks that were built between 1912 and 1926 to haul sugarcane from the plantations to Basseterre. It passes through miles and miles of sugarcane fields and also offers great views of the rainforest and beaches. Accompanied by a smartly dressed conductor and a local choir. This way to travel in the island is the main attraction, the tickets are sold very quick and in advance but we did not know this so we could not get any train tickets when we tried to buy them few days before our arrival.

   So we had to take different transport and we opted for a Chiva bus very typical from Central and South America, many Chivas were parked at the port and we got a day trip that took us to the main sites of the island and to the beach,in addition all the drinks were included which was great :D

You can see the buses parked close to our ship

Colourful Chiva buses


Nobody explained why the bottles were hanging of the tree, anyone know it?

Wingfield Estate

It represents the old tobacco and 250 year old sugar and rum industry.








Brimstone Hill - UNESCO World Heritage Site

The most important historical site on the island is a massive fortress dated from 1690, situated on a volcanic outcrop, 243m above sea level and overlooks the west coast.


Romney Manor

 Home of Caribelle Batik, owned and Managed by successive Earls of Romney over the centuries, this is a beautiful tour of the Historic Manor and its pristine gardens. 
This is a tropical Paradise and home of a 400 year old Samam Tree

St Kitts and the neighbour island Nevis make a country, so with this post I have shown you more than half of the country :D

Thanks in advance for all your comments, I really love them!
