St. John’s beauty is in the island; in its beaches, forests and historical ruins, and they are best explored by motored transportation. There are many trails within the National Park, therefore hiking during the day is a good option for getting around the park. Roads are narrow and without sidewalks in most cases so walking on roads should be done with great caution. St. John is hitchhiking friendly.
