Depends on traffic the day you arrive and if all barges are running. One was down on Sunday and lent to long waiting times back and forth to STJ.
Sorry, don't have a road map handy to give you the route numbers.
You can always ask the rental car agency to show you the routes on map.

Good luck.

I would've sent them the more straight forward way either up Raphune Hill or out thru Havensight and Frenchman's Bay thru Bovoni to Red Hook. Only because it might be easier to get lost going thru Skyline since they don't know island.

Good luck.

The major roads are correct on Google Maps so best to check and download.

Agres with Alana. The Skyline route is not my favorite. Hate that hairpin curve.

Verizon isn't going to work here.
AT&T, Sprint will.
I don't have a road map to look at to give you the route numbers but since you're renting a car the agent will provide a map and you can ask about the routes I mentioned.

Are they going to charge you roaming charges?
If you're on the east end of STJ, check your signal before using your phone as you may pick up the Tortola, BVI cell tower and your bill will be thru the roof, if you do.

As far as I know Verizon doesn't work here but maybe I'm out of the loop and someone else can chime in!

Good luck with everything and have a great trip.
