The islands of St. Kitts & Nevis are located 250 miles from the shores of Puerto Rico, officially in North America, but quite centrally located between the North and South Americas. Some quick facts about St. Kitts & Nevis include:
- St. Kitts & Nevis is the smallest country in the the Americas and boasts a population of just 53,000.
- St. Kitts & Nevis were originally “Liamuiga” and “Oualie” named by locals. Today, the full name is Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis.
- St. Kitts & Neviss are volcanic islands, they have dramatic central futures to prove it! Outside of the high central mountains, the white and black volcanic beaches are a good indication of their history.
- English is the official language and Creole (a French-based language) is quite common.
