I suppose it depends on how you intend to use the vehichle.

It seems to me like a scooter as your only vehichle isn't real practical. All 3 of the islands have their share of steep hills. You probably don't want to be on a scooter when it is raining (for both safety and messy reasons). You can't exactly get a week's worth of groceries on a scooter. Etc, etc.

Hello JB,

Overall for all the islands a car is the best bet. Some people like trucks or SUVs or jeeps - but a car is fine.

A scooter can work to some extent but as mentioned not much room so you will have to shop daily, hard to do laundry if your apartment doesn't have facilities, if it rains you are stuck - sure you can work around these things - some people function here with no transportation at all. The most critical aspect of scooter use is safety - roads are steep, curvy and drivers aren't saavy to sharing the roads with scooters or bikes. Not to many scooters being used as a main form of transportation in the VI.
