St. John
St. John: Feet, Fins and 4-Wheel Drive ( updated in 2009)
by Pam Gaffin
… is a complete, easy-to-use, travel guide to exploring St. John. It tells you exactly where to go, how to get there, and what to do and see when you arrive.

Recommended by Caribbean Travel and Life and by many St. Johnians—since locals are NOT on vacation and can’t always take off from work to be a tour guide for their guests.
