So, based on my research, I had concluded that Nevis was the place to be on our stop at St Kitts. Naturally, this was not meant to be. The day we boarded the Pearl, we were informed that the tour we had booked had been canceled due to a mechanical issue. Seriously? We had a week to go until St Kitts, but the catamaran couldn’t be fixed?
We looked at other tours (not interested or we would have booked them to begin with), and thought about just booking a local island tour, especially as the weather was fantastic upon our arrival. However the agressiveness of the vendors really turned us off. A police officer actually had to intervene to get them to stop following us!
Ultimately, we just shopped at the many venues near the pier. I am so not a shopper, but we picked up a couple of prints that we liked. The rest of the morning was consumed by a very important quest for fridge magnets and the perfect t-shirt. 😉
We thought about stopping at the Rum Barrel for a quick libation:
But being dead center of the main walkway, it was packed each time we walked by. We ended up at the Twylight bar (toward the left once off of the ship) for cheap beer and free WiFi. 😉
Once you were free of the vendors selling tours, and the guys trying to make you pay for pictures with their little monkeys, the port area wasn’t bad. If we ever end up in St Kitts again I will try for Nevis again.
