Puerto Rico vs. St. Thomas

Jump to last reply

I would like to surprise my husband with a trip for his 40th this Feb. We do not have passports, so I am limited to PR or USVI for warmer beach weather. Any suggestions on which island is better for a three day get-a-way? We will be flying from the NE, either Philly or Newark. The flights are roughly the same. Vacation packages I have seen show St. Thomas a little more expensive. I want a nice beach with swimmable water. I don't think we will have much time for anything else, and laying on the beach, swimming and relaxing would be our #1 priority. I would like to go with PR, based on price, but I worry about San Juan. I have read the the waters are choppy and unswimmable. The nicer water in PR seems to be far from the airport. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I would like to book in the next day or so!
