Basseterre, St. Kitts (CUOPM) – St. Kitts is getting much attention on Caribbean Journal.
The spotlight is on the Eastern Caribbean Island’s hiking trails.
CJ’s contributor, Joshua Martinez penned that St. Kitts packs a big punch when it comes to hiking, with a host of trails equally formidable for the novice and the expert.
“On a recent journey to the island, staying at the St. Kitts Marriott, I got the chance to join Greg Pereira of Greg’s Safaris on a fascinating hike through St. Kitts’ Middle Range. Greg’s tour began with a 4×4 trip in the back country of the island, and into the rainforest. Greg calls it the Phillips Rainforest Trail, named for the nearby village of Phillips,” wrote Martinez.
“Due to its location, I thought I would name it after the community so as to create a sense of pride for them and ownership looking at long term sustainable use, continuing after I am gone,” Pereira told Martinez.
St. Kitts is one of the smallest islands in the region, but it is, in many cases, spectacular. It’s lush, mountainous and natural.
