Getting & Living There  (4 Answers)

Hey you all!

During January 2012 I am going to BVI. I am citizen of EU - BVI belongs there I suppose.
I have heared I need return ticket - it's something I didn't expect 'coz I have no idea how long I wanna be there - probably a few months or years. Got any of you experience with this? Can I go there just with one-way ticket? Why it is way?

As next subject I am interested in living there. Can be on BVI easy life - in meaning - fishing, tearing fruits etc. with low cost. I do not want hotels etc. Just be there. Got a point? Generally - how much cost live there? With minimum expences of course.

If someone can help me, I really appreciate it. Thanks a lot!

Tour to Virgin Gorda from Tortola  (2 Answers)

I am planning a cruise with a day stop in Tortola, and i would like to visit Virgin Gorda. Since there will be probably many tourists who want to do the same tour, i would like to know what is the best way how to secure a participation on this tour - because i dont know if there is a limited capacity of these tours. Is it possible to book the tour via the cruise line prior the beginning of the cruise? Or is it better to take a ferry from Tortola to Virgin gorda instead of an organized tour ? Is it possible to book the ferry some days before the departure day?
Thanks for every advice

Recommended hotel in Tortola for a family vacation

Hello, please help me - i am finding a good and cheap hotel in Tortola for a week, ideal for a family with small child. I prefer a hotel on some nice beach, with snorkeling and water sport opportunities (cayacs, paddle boats) , with a grocery and good cheap restaurants close to it. I dont know if Tortola is ideal spot to such vacation, because i have found that:
- many hotels are secluded and a car is necessary (but i dont want to drive there, because there is left-sided driving and what i have heard also dangerous)
- prices in restaurants are very high there.
What about taxis, are they expensive, if i use them daily ? Can i just call some taxi from hotel, or just catch on the road?
Whats the average prices in an average restaurant there?
Thank you for every information

Car rental dilemma

Hi!! My husband and I are going to the Virgin Islands for 10 days in July.

*2 nights in St. Thomas
*4 nights in Tortola
*4 nights in St. John

We want to rent a car on each island. We also will be taking day trips to other BVI while on Tortola. Do we rent cars on these islands too??? What is the best way to do this? We will fly into STT airport, but other than that, should we try to rent from the ferry docks? I just can't seem to get my brain around all these car rentals. Thanks for your help! :-)

Hi! My husband and I are planning a trip to the Virgin Islands in June/July 2008. We are flying to St. Thomas and plan to spend a couple of days and then on to Tortola for a week. What do you think of this plan?

Day 1 - fly to St. Thomas; explore
Day 2 - ferry to St. John; explore St. John for the day
Day 3 - explore St. Thomas; ferry to Tortola
Day 4 - explore Tortola
Day 5 - ferry to Virgin Gorda
Day 6 - ferry to Jost Van Dyke
Day 7 - explore Tortola
Day 8 - ferry to Peter Island
Day 9 - ferry back to St. Thomas; fly home

Here are some questions:

*Has anyone stayed at Pavilions and Pools on St. Thomas?

*Has anyone stayed at the Long Bay Beach resort on Tortola?

*Should we rent a car the entire time, or just rent one for a day on each island that we visit?

Thanks so much for answering my many, many questions. I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

Transportation to Virgin Gorda?  (2 Answers)

My wife and I are wondering how other people normally make it to Virgin Gorda from Canada or the US? I know some popular routes are to fly to SJU then hop on a small Cessna from Cape Air or something over to VG. Another route would be to fly to STT then ferry to VG. What method do you use? Trying to save some money here.. So far the least expensive I have found from here (Calgary, AB Canada) is: Calgary to Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) r/t449Cnd; Cheap hotel near FLL airport, then SpiritAir flight to STT and then Ferry to VG. All of that w/o the ferry is ~$890 per person.

Is there another way we can do this cheaper? The 2nd least expensive would be to buy 2 one-way tickets. Is that allowed? One-way to STT then another one-way ticket from there back to Calgary.

Thanks!

Sailing in BVI during July  (1 Answer)

I'm planning on chartering a bareboat in the BVI for a week some time between mid July to early August. I saw that it's apparently low season during that time, which is good for prices, but I am concerned about what the sailing conditions and the weather will be then. Will it be hurricane season already ?

Thanks in advance
