I forgot St Kitts. We went to Frigate Beach, a volcanic 'black sand' beach. It was too murky for snorkeling as the wind was up, not sure what it would be like on a calmer day. Taxi was $10 but no fees or anything at the beach. On return to the ship we walked the fairly lengthy walk to downtown Basseterre (?2 miles), taxied back. (There is a pier right at the town square area but we were docked out in the industrial area.) Yes, it is very poor, but the walk around the historic area including Independence square (former slave market) the old churches, original buildings takes you into a bit of a time warp. We are history buffs so we love learning about every counry. Outside of Basseterre, St Kitts was quite clean and prospering. Never did an organized tour here.
