This lovely British commonwealth is located off the coast of Central America and north of Trinidad and Tobago. The Twin Pitons, matching, cone-shaped peaks, are its most treasured and well-known landmarks. The capital is Castries, the official currency is the East Caribbean dollar, and the primary language spoken here is English. Unique attractions like a drive-in volcano, sulfur springs and lush rainforests are sure to keep you busy, and you can’t beat the amazing beaches.
