So I'm graduating hs in June and for my graduation present, my parents are paying for plane tickets to somewhere "not too far away." Europe is out of the question because I will have to pay for everything else. I can go somewhere for a week with a group of about 4-6 in August. I was thinking about somewhere in the Caribbean... like St. John's or something. I've been to some places in the Caribbean before, but does anyone have suggestions for towns to stay in for a week? We are thinking about pooling our (quite limited) funds and staying in a small house right by a beach...
US Virgin Islands are definitely safe. I was thinking about St. Thomas or St. John. I really think with the amount of people that are going, it makes more sense to pool our money and rent a small house... it will be cheaper and we can save money by making our own meals.
Europe is a no according to my parents...
I've been there before and will travel there in college, so it's not a big deal.
I've been to the British Virgin Islands a few times, my dad owns a share in a sailboat so we've gone and sailed between the islands. I could help you out if you're wondering about going to the BVI's, I don't know much about the U.S. Virgin Islands though.
Jib life- sure- next thing you know skiers will be doing triples and a black guy will be president
she knows what she's talking about. st. barths is pretty tight if you know where to look on the island. gustavia is really fun at night, and there are some other fun little bar/club things scattered throughout the island. the beaches are prime too, and the plane ride from st. maarten to st. barths is fucking gnarly!
Well... I would go there...
However, there is a drug war going on...
Tons of Americans are getting kidnapped. I don't think I want to be kidnapped by Mexicans and raped up the ass and be thrown into the middle of a drug war.
Barbados is sick i am going for 9 days the egining of june this year. I have been 2 times. both times i loved it but istayed in really sick hotel. The Crane. Its like 200 a night probly not what your looking for. Barbados has great beaches though
dude that guy just broke his face....... he needs a gnarange (gnar orange)
St. John is pretty fun. Caneel Bay is gorgeous and has really really good restaurants, go there if you get a chance. There are a lot of fun hikes through the sugar mill ruins, too. Taking the ferry to the BVI is worthwhile, definitely go to The Baths on Virgin Gorda if you get a chance. It's one of my favorite spots in the Caribbean. Can you scuba dive?
Either Martinique or St. Maarten, which is my favorite island in the Caribbean!! The french side is definitely the way to go, especially Grand Case...it is beautiful! Just stay away from St. Lucia if anyone recommends that island to you, hope that helps! Have fun :D
