USVI Taxi Rates Increase

USVI Taxi Rates Increase 1

Good Morning, Good Morning!  Last month when Teddy and I flew to Puerto Rico to bring Asante home for the season, we were a bit surprised when the taxi driver requested $50 as payment upon drop off at the airport.   We didn’t say anything about the higher-than-normal requested rate that usually is about $20 per person, but the silent exchange between our glances must have been apparent.  The driver explained that if we had got a ride a few days earlier it would have been less.  But the rates had just gone up.  I recalled seeing a headline about this at some point and thought, “Aha, the rate increase went through…”  So, in order to keep all of you from being a bit taken aback on your next trip, I wanted to share the details on these new rates with you!

What To Do During the Slow Season on St. John

What To Do During the Slow Season on St. John 3

Good Morning, Good Morning!  It’s the sleepiest time of year on St. John…But that doesn’t mean your vacation has to be.  We all know that A TON of businesses are currently closed for the off-season and that you can definitely expect lighter crowds and less coordinated activities during this time of year.  But, if you are lucky enough to be visiting during these sleepier months, you might happen upon some fun that you just didn’t expect.  Aside from the emptier than normal beaches, hiking trails and parking areas that we should ALL be taking advantage of, there are many businesses that are remaining open during these slower months.  And, today, I want to touch on those establishments AND some fun activities that you may have never tried before!

NOTICE: Adjusted Temporary Ferry Schedule & Mask Mandate Update

NOTICE: Adjusted Temporary Ferry Schedule & Mask Mandate Update 4

UPDATE-  4/22/2022 – The ferry schedule went back to normal for, seemingly, a few hours on Wednesday.  BUT, yesterday, many commuters between St. Thomas and St. John posted about continual disruptions in the regular schedule.  I am on the hunt for more details, but in the meantime, expect delays and plan accordingly to be on island time.  Again, the downtown ferry and crown bay ferry are running on schedule.  If you are flying in or catching a flight out this weekend, see below for those links.

Good Morning!  I have a real quick update today for all of you current travelers out there.  Due to some mechanical issues with one of the Cruz Bay/Red Hook people ferries, the ferry companies are operating with one working vessel for at least the duration of the day, possibly longer.

Planning Your Trip to St. John – A Timeline

Planning Your Trip to St. John - A Timeline 8

Happy Monday!  We just wrapped up another spectacular weekend here on St. John.  On Friday, we did a little happy hour at Lovango Rum Bar with Kenny Floyd on stage and then headed over to The Beach Bar for an incredible night of music from a superstar lineup.  There were so many good people around and we got to get some masked up dancing in…Which was a true highlight!  It was relatively quiet in town on Friday night…But, on Saturday we went over to St. Thomas to pick up some boat parts and stock up on produce at Moe’s and the ferry ride home was ANYTHING but quiet.  It was PACKED.  Like, literally standing room only.  And the holiday check ins don’t really start until next week.  Which leads me to the purpose of this article….
