Innovative Destination of the Year — St Kitts
It’s the smallest sovereign country in the Western Hemisphere, but tiny St Kitts and Nevis is quietly becoming a leader in tourism development innovation. Using its Citizenship by Investment Programme as an attraction, the country has seen impressive hotel construction growth. But it’s also far ahead of the region in the green sector, with solar-lit highways and now a solar-powered airport. It’s the kind of innovative work that should be a model for the rest of the Caribbean.
