St. Kitts and Nevis has evolved over the past decade or so into a multifaceted destination for both cruise stops and longer-term stays, with globally recognized attractions like the UNESCO-recognized Brimstone Hill fortress and the St. Kitts Scenic Railway, operating on the bed of a former sugar-cane railroad.
St. Kitts reopened to tourism in October 2020, as the destination has taken a cautious, safe approach to welcoming back international visitors Currently there are eight hotels and resorts accepting guests. Visitors must remain at their hotel for the first seven days after arrival. You can still mingle with other guests, dine in the restaurants and bars and partake in a variety of special activities during that seven-day period.
After seven days, guests may elect to take a PCR test (at their own expense, $150). Those who test negative may leave the resort but only to take part in authorized tours (currently there’s only one, the Kittitian Highlights tour which includes a visit to Timothy Hill overlook, the capital city of Basseterre, and Brimstone Hill). Only after 14 days, and another negative test, can visitors move freely about the islands. (Here’s what you need to know before visiting).
