I'm trying to figure out if I want to rent a car or just cab it on an upcoming trip.
I'm going to USVI for 3 nights in January, camping at Cinnamon Bay. This will be my first trip to the USVI. I like off the beaten path beaches, but since its my first trip, and since I have limited time, I'll probably hit the highlights. I'd like to see Trunk Bay (early morning trip to beat the crowds), hike the Reef Bay trail, see the Annaberg Sugar Plantation ruins, snorkel, and hang out on the beach.
If I rented a car, I would get a rental from Budget rent a car at the airport, take it on the ferry, and drive over. The rental would be $150 for the three days, and I'd spend another $100 for taking the car on the ferry. So that's $250 before gas. I'm starting to think that I might be able to see everything I want to see by cabbing in, and that I'd spend less money on cabs on than on a rental.
