St John or Tortola????

Looking to visit the Virgin Islands for the first time with my girlfriend sometime in the late spring/early summer. Hoping to rent a villa, perhaps the Captains House in Tortola, and have a long list of possibles for St John. Wondering which island might be the better choice. We like to have a good time, will spend the majority of our days hiking, snorkeling, beach bars, etc. Any input will be greatly appreciated! Both look so incredibly gorgeous!

Your right, we could have tougher choices. Haha! St. John's town is so great but don't forget to do a day charter. We did a private and fell in love with Jost as well for a very "primtive" feel. You gotta hit Foxy's (he performed while we were there, what a hoot) and of course the Soggy Dollar Bar. We are spending out childrens inheritance this time around and renting a villa in Peter Bay. I still think for your first time, STJ would be your best choice. have fun.
