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 organize and arrange all of the things you want to do while on vacation. I love that this package puts together all of the highlights for visitors with accommodations right in the center of all of the adventure action – in paradise, no less! And the Marriott can point you in the right direction for stuff like jet skiing and kayaking too if you’re up for that as well.
I like to lay on the beach as much as the next girl. But St. Kitts had so much going on, even I couldn’t bear to be grounded.
