st john for first time carribean travellers?

Jump to last reply

We are going to the carribean for the first time , we are from australia, but get cheap flights to the U.S, so we are exploring your side of the world while we can .
I have read and read about which island might suit us best and it seems that St John and BVI are the ones., We love snorkelling, and lush landscapes .
Which part of St John should we stay on , we like to be a short drive or walk from good restaurants . Any restaurant recommendations would be great , I got sick in Mexico should i be careful eating here or is it quite safe .
We stayed in a villa/condo in mexico and they suit us . can you recommend a smaller villa or condo. we r going in mar/apr. Do you think we should do a cruise on one of the smaller ships first then a week on an island.
.
one last thing some of the carribean islands seem to have quite a lot of muggings and armed robberies, this is a bit off putting .
is St John a bit safer ? Having said that we were warned off going to Mexico , and it couldnt have been safer ...
Ps we are 45ish -

Thanks so much for all your help

Kim
