On the weekends, best to avoid Buck Island or anchoring near the fisherman dock at southeast end of Christiansted harbor. Lots of local go-fast boats blasting music near the beach and then many return to haulout at the boat launch. While waiting to haulout, they race around the anchorage at full speed.

I would have assumed the French, Hospital Center Louis Constant Fleming, would have more advanced care available and gone there, but I am not familiar with either hospital. Where do those who are more familiar with the island recommend someone go? I hope I never need either but it would be good to know which facility is preferred.

Pack ear plugs and/or bluetooth headset (don't forget to download airline app, boingo, or other perks) for your flight.

And once you settle in, if you're staying in an airbnb, be prepared to buy tp, dish soap, hand soaps, shampoo and if on french side, bring face cloths as may not be provided.

Most important??? bring your big smile and a laissez fair attitude...there's nothing a rhum punch can't make disappear... at least until the next morning.

enjoy and please add your trip report.

If you go to Rite Way online there is a selection for prepared food. I think you just have to Email what you want and they will make it.

Over the years, I bought some beautiful tanzanite jewelry in SXM - tanzanite and diamond earrings and a tanzanite and diamond tennis bracelet, all from Boolchands. Not sure if they are still there. Also a ring with an emerald-cut tanzanite set in it. Tanzanite is a bluish-purple stone - quite unusual.

I wish they would make the ball available at 2pm instead of noon. We often pick up a BB before noon (like provisioning in Soper's).
The balls could (would) be FCFS between the time they are vacated and 2pm, which would make them more useful for a lunch stop.

Most of the time you could probably get away with staying on the BB longer since few reservation holders show up right at noon, but I never want to take the chance and be that guy.

Thanks for the pics!

For future reference, here on TTOL, pictures will show up much larger if taken in landscape mode, versus portrait. I have no idea why that is so.

Be aware that AT&T now considers the USVI as international. That is a change from past practice. The international plan will work in STT.

Anyone know of a recipe for Marks tasty side dish? Ate there last night and my daughter enjoyed her rice leftovers today. She wants to try to make it but when I look online I mostly find Jamaican versions that call for Scotch bonnet pepper and coconut milk. I’m guessing the restaurant uses dried beans not canned kidney beans.

Howdy Adventure Addict,

Glad you found the links interesting and useful. I'm going to order the Sim package in a few weeks.
If it actually works, it will beat having to buy one for each country and it's very reasonable.
And I will get it for second planned trip.
The ones I bought while in Iceland were $29 and only 5GB.

Cheers

Try the 10 oz. burger at Lee’s, it’s delicious and definitely big enough for two. It comes with fries as well. The price is $17 but again, there’s enough to feed two people.

jborosara--Perhaps that was part of the magic--anyone who was going for Regatta was already there before Friday. Regardless, you lucked out!
