Can anyone recommend at nice 2 day get a way from STX to STJ???
Looking for a nice get away for 2 days from STX to STJ.
Do you just want recommendations for lodging, or a whole itinerary with transportation, lodging, activities and meals? What's your budget?
If you have limited time and want to see a lot of Old San Juan, I highly recommend the Segway tour. You see a lot of the old town area and go into the fort for a tour... and you don't have to walk and sweat up the hills like everyone else! All the people you zip past on the Segway are extremely envious. The 2 hour tour covers so much ground and you have fun, too. You get stops along the way for photo ops, etc.
Right at the pier where the Segway office is, there is also a passenger ferry that runs across the bay and comes in not far from the Bacardi factory. There are always taxis available to take you from the west ferry terminal to the rum factory if you want to take the tour.
I've often gotten nice hotel rooms at the Marriott in old town for $100 per night on priceline.com... which sure beats the several hundred a night they charge as a rack rate.
Oops, Sorry! I was reading that as San Juan, not St. John. But if you ever head to SJU, maybe it will come in handy! 😉
You might check Calabash Cottages website to see if they have any time available. I think they usually book for a week at a time, but they are great people to work with. You would need a car.
Try Estate Lindholm...just outside of town, great spot and views. Also, Gallows Point condos, Coconut Coast Studios, Garden By the Sea B&B, Aqua Villas, and The Boutique Hotel. All are small and all have good reputations. Would not need a car as they all are a within a short walk into town.
Are you familiar with Maho Bay Campground? It's an eco-camp, with "tent-like" structures. Very basic and the bath is in a community building. There's a small store and a restaurant, lots of steps up to the restaurant or down to the beach. It's also a long way from Cruz Bay, but if you're looking for very laid-back, it's great.
If you want more of the beach bar scene, upscale restaurants, etc. Maho isn't the place for you.
