Do we need to rent a car for April vacation? It is our first trip to the island and I am hearing you have to cab everywhere. Any suggestions from past visitors also what places to eat do you recommend. We are staying at the Westin in Cruz Bay..Thank you in advance.

Taxi rides are priced are per person so they will add up pretty fast. You don't have to rent but if you want to go to other beaches / restaurants I would recommending renting for at least part of your stay. Taxis also don't go everywhere on the island.

And reserve your car asap - it can be hard to find one the closer your get to your trip date.

Renting a vehicle is highly recommended. I'd also recommend making a reservation now, vehicles on St. John are limited.

Most everyone will tell you to rent a vehicle. There is a lot to explore and taxis will only get to limited areas.

You can rent right there where you're staying! :) One of the great perks of staying at the Westin! ENJOY! :)

You'll miss a large portion of the island if you don't rent. At least rent for part of the time so you can get over to Coral Bay. And rent soon, as Rick said jeeps are limited and if you wait to long you may not get one.
