That article is so true... we usually go to Siesta Key Island, Florida - last summer the flights to USVI were the same as to Florida - and rental on a condo was less - so we took our first trip to USVI! We LOVED it. We were so hopeful to return this year - but the flights are outrageous - nearly $700 R/T per person from DFW - that placed it out of our vacation budget. We are returning to Florida this year - but I keep checking the flights to STT - just in case!

So until the flights drop in price - We enjoy USVI through forums and webcams!!

Finally- A very positive article- so tired of reviews on TA dissing the locals and complaining about taxi cab fares. Many of the complainers don't do their homework and then stay put in one place because they didn't rent a car.

The weather in the VI and BVI in the winter is reliable, water is gorgeous, and you can't beat the Caribbean experience. We are not ready for the "early bird special" experience of Florida.

Great article....leaving for St John next week. The article says 'And the water temperature is 80 degrees in February. That’s not gonna happen anywhere else in the U.S. except Hawaii.' Does anyone know how the humidity compares to Hawaii this time of year?
