We will be going to St. John in July and was last there in 2005. I have a few questions if anyone can help.
1-We are interested in snorkleing at Waterlemon and wonder where to park before the hike? Are there bathrooms anywhere near the beach there and chairs or should we plan to bring our own?
What other good places should we snorkle. Last time we did a boat trip and it was great fun but we want to spend more time on the island this year.
2- If our passports arrive (we sent off in early April) we are thinking of a trip to BVI? Any suggestions there? I'm thinking of New Horizions II but one of us doesn't swim so is it worth it for them to go? Is it still fun for a non-swimmer?
3- Last time we used Courtesy Car Rental and were satisifed, especially because of being able to park downtown. Any thoughts on them or are ther others that would be better?
4- Our flight gets in at 3:30 so we are thinking of taking the Red Hook Ferry over so we won't get in so late. We don't want to have to wait for the 5:00 ferry from CA. Caribbean VIllas offers a private taxi service from the airport to Red Hook roundtrip for $50.00 per person but that seems outrageous. Would we be better off to just get a cab from the airport to Red Hook ? Any suggestions there?
5. We want to bring some rum home and it looks like it's best (or easiest) to buy it at the airport so that it will be packed and sent through. It it more expensive there? I'd rather buy it from the locals on St John but I'm concerned about packing it myself in our luggage.
Thanks for any help you can give. We loved the island and want to make the most of our time.
