Charlestown, privilegio mundial

Prosigo con mis viajes y con mi particular tendencia por las islas paradisíacas y en esta ocasión nos vamos muy cerca de un destino ya comentado aquí, Basse Terre. Nos dirigimos a la isla de San Cristóbal y Nevis (St. Kitts & Nevis), exactamente a la ciudad de Charlestown.

Estas islas fueron descubiertas por Cristóbal Colón en uno de sus viajes a América, pero no fue hasta 1623 cuando se fundase la primera colonia. Al igual que con San Vicente y Las Granadinas, los franceses y británicos se enzarzaron en cruentas luchas para hacerse con el poder en esta tierra y al igual que el anterior destino los británicos ganaron el enfrentamiento. Hasta el año 1983 el país no adquiere su completa independencia, año en el que se convierte en el estado número 158 de la ONU.

Para acceder al país es necesaria la presentación del pasaporte en vigor, billete de salida y fondos suficientes. El idioma oficial es el inglés aunque como en el caso anterior, también se habla el inglés criollo y el hindi. Su moneda oficial es el Dólar del Caribe Oriental y su clima es de tipo tropical moderado con temperaturas que suelen oscilar entre los 17ºC y los 33ºC y ocasionalmente hay huracanes de Agosto a Octubre.

Como en casi todos los lugares de esta zona la artesanía juega un papel muy importante en las compras donde destacan sus trabajos en madera, confección de artículos decorativos, coloridos textiles y complementos étnicos. El horario comercial suele ser de 8 a 17h.

Uno de los lugares más visitados de Charlestown es el Museo Nelson donde su dueño ha dedicado muchos años a recopilar recuerdos y documentos de este afamado almirante británico. Bath Springs es un antiguo centro termal donde podrá disfrutar de un incomparable espectáculo que ofrecen las aguas cayendo desde la ladera de una montaña hasta un estanque.

Un destino al que podrá llegar fácilmente desde aeropuertos británicos si se encuentra en Europa o desde los aeropuertos más importantes de América Latina o Norteamérica.

    great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely
    be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to
    another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I think what you posted was actually very
    reasonable. However, what about this? what if you were to write a killer headline?

    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, however what if you added a post title that
    grabbed people’s attention? I mean Charlestown, privilegio mundial –

    Las Escapadas is a little vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article titles to grab people
    to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers
    excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would
    bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you
    get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
