Hey there! 1. Car - I pondered this and was very glad I decided to rent. The flexibility to hop in your car and explore was so worth it. If you plan on going to St. John’s, get a jeep. The jungle roads are steep. 2. My SO and I bought some off Amazon and packed them. Brought them to every beach we went to. 3. The Easterly in Red Hook was incredible.

Thanks a lot! I will certainly consider a jeep but don't think I want to buy snorkel gears.. I prefer traveling light.

I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
