Introduction: 'Saint Kitts and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. It''s known for cloud-shrouded mountains and beaches. Many of its former sugar plantations are now inns or atmospheric ruins. The larger of the 2 islands Saint Kitts is dominated by the dormant Mount Liamuiga volcano home to a crater lake green vervet monkeys and rainforest crisscrossed with hiking trails.'

Overview: Carib Indians occupied the islands of the West Indies for hundreds of years before the British began settlement in 1623. In 1967 the island territory of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla became an associated state of the UK with full internal autonomy. The island of Anguilla rebelled and was allowed to secede in 1971. The remaining islands achieved independence in 1983 as Saint Kitts and Nevis. In 1998 a referendum on Nevis to separate from Saint Kitts fell short of the two-thirds majority vote needed. Nevis continues in its efforts to separate from Saint Kitts.
