My wife and I are hoping to take a vacation to St Johns this spring. Our only previous trip to the caribbean was 8 years ago for our honeymoon and we stayed at Ti Kaye in St. Lucia. Here is what we are looking for in our trip and would appreciate any ideas and suggestions:
A week in early May 2014 (6th-13th +/-)
We are on a tight budget, so hoping to stay close to $2500 (I realize this will be tough)
Flights from DC will be $325-$375 each
Jeap rental for the week $450 +/-
I had origionally looked in to so resorts, but found the prices to be to high for us. I think Caneel Bay was $3000 without food. We are open to B&B, small cottages, condos or any budget friendly spots. From what I have read it would be best for first timers to be close to Cruz bay? I think it would also be nice to have a bit of a view for mornings and evenings.
We are pretty athletic and love the outdoors and we loved the snorkelling we did in St Lucia. Part of the reason for selecting St Johns would be for the snorkeling. We enoy hiking to scenic points, kayaking, relaxing on the beach, romantic evenings, etc. We also enjoy exploring new places which is why we would like to have a jeep. I could see us venturing back to St Thomas for a day trip too.
