Botanical gardens at Romney Manor
I had the opportunity to learn about Caribelle Batik, a fabric dying style that is made by using a wax to mask off patterns before dying the fabric with rich colors.

Colorful homes in St. Kitts.
Exploring Basseterre, the capital of St. Kitts which is the best place to go shopping. While sugarcane used to be the primary source of revenue for the country, it now mostly comes tourism and few of the sugarcane field remain as they were burnt down.
The stunning road to Turtle Beach where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet.
In two days you can easily drive around the entire island of St. Kitts and take the ferry to Nevis and stop at the various attractions, but you would miss the time to relax and soak up the sun on some of the nicer beaches.
