Each of the islands in this chain (Anguilla, St. Martin/Sint Maarten, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts & Nevis) has its own history, culture and ecology, offering a cultural melange for those on an island-hopping vacation. Rainforest, beaches, wetlands, mangrove swamps and offshore shoals afford an unlimited variety of places in which to create your own adventure vacation.
Up until a few years ago, St. Kitts and Nevis were the type of islands that tourists delighted in discovering. Seemingly untouched by modern times, they seemed like the old Caribbean; small, intimate hotels, pristine beaches, uncluttered roads, with acres of cane fields and rainforests dominating the landscape. But now two large chain hotels; the Marriott in St. Kitts and the Four Seasons in Nevis have broadened the options.
