Questions about a week in St. Kitts at Christmas

Jump to last reply

I am considering taking myself and two university aged children to St. Kitts at Christmas. Why?
It looks beautiful, appears to be warm at this time of year, I can get a direct flight from Toronto,
and it's affordable - I think. The cost for the Air Canada vacation includes the flights and a week at Timothy Beach Resort for approximately $1100 per person. My specific questions are as follows:

Are dining costs comparable to city dining out costs? For example, $5-$10 per person for a quick lunch? $20 per person for a mid-ranged dinner?

Are groceries expensive. For example, is a litre (quart) of milk $10?

Is the town of Frigate Bay shut down for Christmas and Christmas Eve?

Are car rentals easily available?

Sites suggest its 80F at Christmas and the mosquitos are not too bad at this time of year - fact or fiction?

We just want to read, sit by the sea, maybe do some walking, and eat. I am not averse to cooking, or to eating beach shack food. Even though the kids are university aged, neither will want to hit the clubs.

There have been excellent suggestions of Villa Rentals on the Fodors' forum; however, Air Canada does not offer flights independent of Air Canada Vacation packages. Other flights out of Toronto are not direct.

Thank you so much Fodorites for any information provided!
