what not to miss

I'm going to St Thomas on a budget. What should I not miss?

Where are you staying/how long and will you rent a car?

Bring your own snorkel equipment so you don't have to rent - bring a colapsable cooler for beverages and lunch - bring lots of sunscreen - take the ferry to St John -its cheap -hang out on the beach as much as possible. Don't miss relaxing. The reason I like Las Virgins so much is I don't have to waste my time sight seeing - I try to make my mark in the sand as much as possible.

Don't miss St. John, rent a car, it's cheaper, and don't waste money on tours-create your own. If you are staying at a place with a kitchen, bring your own meat. If not, bring a cooler anyway so you can save $ by buying your own food, drinks, snacks. We are always travelling on a budget and have really learned how to cut the cost.
