Kathy, also don't forget to package 2 of the test kits, in your carry-on luggage, for testing to return to the USA. Abbott Labs says if you pack in your checked luggage that the temperatures in the cargo hold will/can damage the tests .

Hi Carol! I value your opinion so thanks for posting this. I have been considering Medwork because of the ability to have an appointment. For Saturday travel and the $70 test, should we go on Thursday?

To my knowledge, that is not required as of YET anyway, for the French side. This is the first I have heard of it actually being required in SXM. It is required in mainland France.

Thank you, thank you. I’ve been craving a trip report for ages so this was perfect. Lovely to spend special times in special places and with special family. Glad it all turned out well, particularly your night at BSV - it really is a little piece of heaven here on earth.

Again, thanks for sharing your experience. 😊😊

Having done it personally for 8 I would be glad to delegate that and get my root canal elsewhere...

What a nice sentiment to wish someone ill will. Congrats to yourself (yes, that's sarcasm).

We are 26+ year visitors to STJ that started venturing over to VG several years ago.

On STJ, be prepared to drive to the beaches. Walking distance to beaches is very rare and the options available tend to be speedy. Beaches are more populated.

Cruz Bay is a great walking, eating and thinking village and we always miss it when staying on VG. When we stay on STJ, we always head to Cruz Bay for the evening.

STT - all our trips were stop overs in the way to STJ but still enjoyable. RickG’s advice is excellent.

We sailed the USVIs in February on a crewed charter and loved seeing spots we overlooked for years.

We’ve booked through the Globe Sailor, and they broker charters all over the world, but have several in the Seychelles. We are booked for November this year and the pricing was quite reasonable, I thought, particularly compared to the BVI. Now, your flight cost will make up that difference but we are really looking forward to experiencing new islands on a large cat.

Carol: That's why I deliberately said "most" nations!! My reply was primarily in response to your comment about "I don't know if they can tell where it is ordered FROM...". Most Americans have little to no experience with this, so thought it might be informative to have an "outsider's" experience. Obviously, if officials are corrupt or look the other way, or people are prepared to break the law (e.g. smuggling), tax controls will not work. That's no different than anywhere else in the world. But that is more of a political, than a program discussion, so I wasn't going to go there.

There are private boats entering now. There were at least 50 or 60 boats from PR in the BVI for xmas in July. I don't think charter boats, but private boats can arrange to enter. The govt. orders link in the other post are from 2020.

Someone recently posted the instructions to enter on a private vessel. I will see if I can find them.

Track looks to be well north of SXM and only a tropical storm.
