Where to stay in US Virgin Islands
The islands have more hotels per square mile than anywhere in the Caribbean. Costs vary according to standard, but are generally quite high compared to other Caribbean islands. The islands' hotel association has a counter at the airport to assist with reservations. A variety of guest houses, condominiums and villas are also available on St John and St Thomas.
There are two main campsites, both on the island of St John. One of the main sites, Cinnamon Bay Camp, is located inside the 4.680-hectare (11,560-acre) St John National Park. Inexpensive bare plots, plots with tents already set up and cottages are available for a maximum stay of two weeks. The site is very popular, so reservations should be made well in advance. The other campsite is at Maho Bay near a beautiful beach. So-called 'eco-tents', which are part of the tourist authorities' wish to encourage 'sustainable tourism' and rustic cabins are also available.
