St. Kitts and Nevis are mountainous siblings that represent two sides of one handsome coin. The two have important similarities: They're both anchored by muscular volcanoes, and they both have troops of green vervet monkeys - brought over by the British, or maybe the French, in the 18th century - that inhabit the less populated regions. Both islands have historic plantation inns with personality and character, and their sugar production was once unrivalled in the Caribbean. But although they also share a St. Kitts-based government, beyond that they go their separate ways.

Nevis, the smaller of the two, gave up its sweet tooth for sugarcane cultivation in the 1960s, allowing the island to initiate a casual embrace of tourism. Five plantation inns thrive today - only one of them on the shore, the others straddling the lush shoulders of conical Nevis Peak. The 1991 debut of a 196-room Four Seasons Resort dramatically altered the landscape. The various accommodation options complement one another more than they compete, although the island is notably short on lodging facilities for the budget-minded. Nevis does not court cruise ships, but it became more accessible with the debut of American Eagle service from San Juan in 2003.
