Geocaching, a high-tech treasure hunt game via an app, is still popular on Nevis.
In the last three months, five people have found the hidden cache at Nisbet Plantation. We first posted about the Nevis Geocaching in 2008. The effort was driven by Jim Johnson, a nature lover and trail guide who often led hikes for Nisbet Plantation guests. Unfortunately, Jim passed away unexpectedly several years ago.
Geo Caching involves the hiding and locating of geographical “treasure chests” using GPS coordinates. The chests contain a log book, ink pad and stamp. Collect a stamp from each cache, and you can receive discounts for various attractions across the island. Click here for a clue to the Nisbet location.
Adventure Tours has set up five geocaches at historically significant places around the island. You can locate them, and then learn about the Pirates that came through this part of the Caribbean. Many treasures are carefully handmade, so when you find them, please do not take them. Leave them for others to enjoy. Happy searching!
