An Anecdote for the U.S. Presidential Elections: Vacation on the Caribbean Island of Nevis

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the U.S. Presidential election approaches its home stretch at fever pitch, the thought of relaxing may conjure images of just letting everything go and finding an island to unwind. An island with warm welcoming people, where meals are memorable, accommodations are exceptional and beaches are impeccable. If there were an award for such an island Nevis would surely win. Or so say the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine who voted Nevis the number one island in the Caribbean in the...

Caribbean Taxi Fares at the Airport

Caribbean Taxi Fares at the Airport

At Barbados airport, the fares to the various island destinations are posted on a board outside the arrivals area. I made sure that my taxi driver knew the fare to my destination and whether I would be paying him in US or East Caribbean dollars. From Melville Hall in Dominica the fare to Roseau, the capital, is US$50 for the 1.5 hour trip. However, there are never many taxis at the airport, so this scarcity might raise the price. When I arrived at VC Bird airport in Antigua, I headed to the taxi dispatcher, who wrote out a receipt for me so...

Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis

Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis

Basseterre is the capital of the country St Kitts and Nevis. It’s an unremarkable town with two cathedrals, an independence fountain, and The Circus, a roundabout containing the Berkeley Memorial Clock, which is modeled after Piccadilly Circus in London (it’s alleged). In Basseterre there is a shiny new harbor facility, Port Zante, where cruise ships berth and which contains duty-free shops and souvenir stores. Many tourists only see this facility and don’t go anywhere else in St Kitts, so missing the amazing Brimstone Hill...

Discovering St. Kitts’ Brimstone Hill Fortress

Even if you don’t normally visit castles and military history and armaments don’t excite you, it’s still worth it to visit the amazing Brimstone Hill Fortress in St. Kitts, if only for the incredible views it affords in every direction. Overlooking the western coast of St Kitts, Brimstone Hill enables visitors to see St Eustatius and Saba to the north, Basseterre to the south, and the island’s highest point, Mount Liamuiga, to the east. Brimstone Hill was begun in 1690, but was taken by a force of 8,000 French soldiers...

St. Kitts Marriott: Truly Untouched Sand and Surf

Posted by on 10:16 pm in ITKT Blogs, Jenny Block, St Kitts and Nevis | 0 comments

I loved it. Ok. Fine. I totally loved it. So pipe down to all of you who take issue with chain hotels. Here’s the thing about chains. With good ones, you’re never disappointed. That’s been my experience with Marriott, so far anyway. Local color is great. However, you don’t always have to sacrifice it by going with a known quantity. I recently stayed at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino. Sadly, it was just for a few short days, but that was all I needed to fall in love. I go to a lot of beaches and a lot of...

Get “High” in St. Kitts

Posted by on 2:11 pm in ITKT Blogs, Jenny Block, St Kitts and Nevis | 0 comments

I didn’t get to check out the volcano while I was in St. Kitts. However, I did get to zip line and visit the cliff-top UNESCO World Heritage Site Brimstone Hill Fortress, which had stellar views. I just found out that the St. Kitts Marriott (which I stayed in and LOVED) has just started offering a vacation package that they call “Get High in St. Kitts.” It’s an adventure package that includes accommodations plus a volcano hike, ziplining, and trip to the Brimstone. One of the things that can be frustrating is trying to...

The St. Kitts “Strip”

Posted by on 12:36 am in ITKT Blogs, Jenny Block, St Kitts and Nevis | 1 comment

Don’t think Vegas. Not at all. Think a row of beach shacks up and down the sand just steps from the ocean. Think great music, cold rum punch, and throngs of people, locals and tourists alike. Not far from the St. Kitts Marriott where I was staying, the Strip was the place to be on Friday night. By the time I headed off to bed at 1:45am, I could tell some folks were just getting started. What I appreciated most at The Shiggidy Shack, The Rainbow, and the rest of the clubs was that everyone mixed and mingled and danced and partied. Medical...

Ziplining St. Kitts with Jenny

Posted by on 9:36 am in ITKT Blogs, Jenny Block, St Kitts and Nevis | 0 comments

It’s important to note that I am not an adventurous girl — at all. I just went on my first roller coaster three and a half years ago for no reason other than that I was terrified of it. And I was tired of being terrified. So, to tell you I went ziplining — and loved it — is a big deal. I was in St. Kitts for a few days staying at the St. Kitts Marriott www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/skbrb-st-kitts-marriott-resort-and-the-royal-beach-casino/ which I love, by the way. More on that in another entry. And I decided it was...
