St. Kitts and Nevis

St. Kitts and Nevis

St. Kitts and Nevis are mountainous siblings that represent two sides of one coin. The two have important similarities; they’re both anchored by vast volcanoes, and they both have troops of green vervet monkeys brought over in the 18th century which inhabit the less populated regions. Both islands have historic plantation inns with personality and character, and their sugar production was once unrivalled in the Caribbean. But although they also share a St. Kitts-based government, beyond that they go their separate ways.
