    Anyone been to Jost Van Dyke recently? We are thinking of going soon. Need real info on ferries and perhaps a decent place to stay on St. Thomas the night before that isn't too expensive.

    One thing I'm trying to figure out is about customs. Does the ferry go to West End or Road Town?

    ferries go from West End.....which was a pain in the ass as I was in Roadtown...they checked passports but it was very casual

    look at Saphire Beach Resort on St Thom..also the Marriot Frenchmens Reef is nice and I dont think any of those are very expensive

    Thanks Mike. We have been (years ago) so we know the drill but I wanted to know if anything had changed with the customs drill.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    THe airfare is being a PITA if I don't want to pay $1200. ugh!

    What is this I read? Two paradise trips in 1 year? It's bitter cold here this morning. What happened to my ideal winter?
    It was my first look, baby that's all it took

    peter, thanks for the info and I will file that away. We can't seem to get decent airfare for our available dates...bumming.


    Shirley....don't think so but the price was almost right.
