Ok TA Members - I need some help:
We absolutely LOVE STT & STJ and have decided to share our love with our family. We are bringing the whole crew down next year (2011) - but, hubz and I always go in December the week before Christmas (nice wind down before the Holidays). Two members of our family are teachers, so we are restricted to travel between June 11 and August 13. We've never had any problems traveling the week before Christmas as far as dinner reservations, rental car, etc. - if anything was a "problem" I would say it's been too few people that week, and some of our plans were shifted a little bit when there weren't enough people for dive trips, or some restaurants have been closed.
What differences should I expect traveling in the summer vs. winter?
How difficult will it be to get two rental cars?
When would be the best time to travel between June, July or August?
Any other suggestions or helpful hints?
I've heard peak season is Dec - April, but as I've mentioned - the week before Christmas has never been a problem for us. If that is peak travel am I going to have a hard time booking excursions, etc?
