After reviewing a few similar forum posts on this subject, and many other travel company websites (which downplay the problems), the main question in my mind remains RELIABILITY:
is it cutting it too tight for one day travel, or should one definitely plan an extra travel day before and after a resort stay?
We're currently making final plans for a late November 1 week stay in VG North Sound.
- if via SJU to Tortola EIS in mid-afternoon, and including a possibly long customs wait, then it is too late for a ferry connection to the north side of VG; so we're looking at overnighting in San Juan or Tortola
- if via STT, a mid-afternoon landing (possibly delayed) makes us miss a ferry out of Charlotte-Amalie to VG
- ferry to STT and transfer to the airport cuts it very tight to make the flight
- ferry to EIS looks OK, but Cape Air to SJU is expensive
I am looking for experiences and suggestions. Thank you. Would you plan your overnight near SJU, STT, or EIS?
