Your driver/guide will unfold the tale of St. Kitts from its early origin, beginning with the city’s charming capital Basseterre, with its many restored colonial buildings, thriving commercial centre, and national landmarks.

Traveling along the Atlantic coast, you'll see stretches of volcanic black beaches, the islands of St. Maarten and St. Barthelemy (on a clear day), verdant green rainforest mountain ranges, the cloud-capped peak of Mt. Liamuiga, and swaying sugar cane, which was the main industry of the island for 350 years. En route, you'll see ruins of old chimneys and windmills dotting the scenic landscape, which remain an important testament to St. Kitts' rich and volatile history.

Halfway around the island, we'll stop at Dieppe Bay to see the ebony volcanic cliffs of Black Rocks. There are restroom facilities at this stop and an opportunity to shop for local crafts. From here, you can also see the Dutch islands of St. Eustatius and Saba, and, further on, Gibbons Hill, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the tranquil, pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea.

As your island adventure continues, the historical past of St. Kitts comes alive with the story behind Brimstone Hill Fortress--a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the tomb of Sir Thomas Warner, the first governor of St. Kitts; Bloody Point, where over 2,000 Kalinago were massacred in 1626; and Clay Villa Plantation, best described as a Kittitian legacy, whose owners are Carib. This was the only plantation to never profit from slavery.

Your tour of fabled Clay Villa is comprised of a leisurely stroll through lush, fragrant, delightfully manicured gardens full of fruit and flowers, birds, monkeys, turtles, and exotic fish. Admire collections of antiques and other treasures, hand carved furniture, glass art, and much more on display throughout the family museum and plantation house.

Experience a taste of plantation life past and present, and learn about the beliefs and customs of the Kalinago Indians. Upon completion of the tour, you'll have a few minutes to relax and enjoy a complimentary drink, peruse the gift shop, and/or use the restroom.

We'll then depart Clay Villa for the port, gently coasting along the island's main road, where we'll pass universities, the egrets' nesting grounds, the Carib Brewery, and the War Memorial.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
