Although there are hotels in Basseterre, the accomadations in the city are not as well developed as on some of the neighboring islands. However, there is a very fine Marriott resort and other accomodations in the countryside, mostly toward the north end of the island.
A large percentage of visitors who come to St. Kitts arrive by cruise ship, as we did. But even cruises are not as plentiful here as they are to other Caribbean destinations. When our ship arrived in St. Kitts on Sat., Oct. 15, we were informed that ours was the first cruise to dock there for the season, which runs from late Oct. through early spring. The upside of this is that the locals seemed excited about our arrival and eager to welcome us.
