You’ll pass miles of sugarcane and be briefed on how changing market conditions have threatened St. Kitts’ sugar-based economy. (Evidenced by remains of several long-abandoned processing plants.)
Train buffs can track the still-operating two-foot gauge railroad that circles much of the island, hauling the cane to what’s now a centralized processing facility at Basseterre.
US$15/person, (as long as the van has at least four passengers), including hotel pickup and return. Highly recommended.)
