This former British colony attracts many tourists to its beautiful beaches, breath-taking scenery and warm climate. Imagine not just going there for a holiday, but having a job on one of the islands and enjoying this place every day.
The service industry, tourism and offshore finance are very important for St. Kitts and Nevis’ economy. During the Global Financial Crisis the economy of the island was impacted, but since 2014 the economy has been growing again and over 200.000 visitors come here every year, which is amazing considering the permanent population on the islands is only 52.000.
The weather is great year round and the water temperature is always perfect for a swim. Volcanoes formed the islands and while none of them are active nowadays, the volcanoes did create beautiful surroundings with lush forests that are perfect for hikes and offer incredible views from the summit of the tallest mountain.
The capital city Basseterre is home to 18.000 people and this is where most business happens. From here, other places on the island are easy accessible by roads in perfect condition. Socializing is big and locals are friendly and open to each other and visitors. Their friendliness is something that really stands out and that travellers often remember vividly after a visit. The education on the islands is of a high standard and good health care is also available in the hospital on St. Kitts.
