Start your trip

Do you have plans to visit St. John? It's the place to go for a vacation that's slightly out of the ordinary. The locals are the fun and quirky crowd and most of this small island is a national park. You'll love your visit here, and Geauxing Places Travel from Denham Springs, Louisiana, can take you there in no time! In the meantime, here are four tips that you may find useful on your trip.

  • Transportation
  • Transportation options in St. John are few, so your best bet is to rent a car. You can make arrangements through local rental companies to pick up any vehicle you wish when you arrive on the island. We advise you rent a sturdy car or a jeep for the terrain. If that's not an option, you'll find several open-air taxis at the ferry dock.

  • What to Carry
  • St. John is a secluded island. It can be fun if you're looking for somewhere different without tourist crowds, but there is also not much in the way of convenience stores, pharmacies, and stores for general sundries. As such, bring any prescriptions and necessary items with you. If you're staying in self-catering accommodation, you can get groceries on the island. Just note that they might be a little pricey. If you want to, you can also get things from St. Thomas and bring them over, as many more convenience stores are available there.

  • Recreation
  • St. John is surrounded by nature and you can join many companies on their tours of various areas of the Virgin Islands National Park in St. John. You can also venture there on your own. Most hotels also loan out snorkel gear, and you should take advantage. You'll find some gorgeous snorkeling and scuba diving spots along Trunk Bay and elsewhere off the island.

    You can spend the day exploring some of the international areas of the island. You'll find most boat tours, gear rentals, and other activity coordinators near the docks in Cruz Bay, although some hotels will make those arrangements for you upon request.
