We hope to visit for 4-5 days at the end of Feb...there seems like so much to choose from I don't know where to start my research...we do enjoy walking in forests/mountains if that's a possibility but of course getting to relax in the sun is a must.....also, what sorts of evening entertainment are we likely to find? Thanks in advance.

Not difficult to start research at all! There are so many links on this forum at the top of this page to assist you in your decision-making process. Just click and read! From STT you have easy access to STJ for day trips and if you rent a vehicle on STT you can (with the exception of Hertz) take your rental vehicle to St John on the car barge. And from STT and STJ you can also take a daysail to the BVI. St Croix is much further away and more isolated but you could stay there for 4-5 days and enjoy what that island has to offer.

Your research starts right here on this site so start clicking! Again, top of this page! Cheers!

So you say you plan to come at the end of the month. That is about three or so weeks away. Where will you be staying? Let us know so we can give suggestions accordingly. Good luck!

there is a major difference between ST. Croix and St. Thomas/St. John. St. Croix is no were as busy as STT. St. John is more laid back than either, but it does cost a little more.

If you nave not made your reservation I would suggest that you stay a little longer than 5 DAYS. It is just too short.

If you choose STT then give us a call as we might have something available.

No matter what island you choose you will enjoy it.
