Like France, Saint Barthélemy is an easy island to get a lift although hitching is not common the majority of the population living there are primarily from Europe and then secondly from North America. Saint Barthélemy is unique in the Caribbean as no slave population lived here more than a few years as the island has no natural water source, is quite rugged and very dry.
