    Getting around - taxi tour or?

    by grandmaR Online Now Aug 13, 2012 at 2:47 PM

    We are going to be in St. Barth's from 8 am to 3 pm on a cruise ship. I normally use a scooter to get around but can walk short distances. I understand the terrain is pretty steep. How much trouble would I have do you think? My scooter breaks down into 5 pieces and can be put in the trunk of a car.

    There are a number of things I'd like to do there. One of them is to take photos in some of the cemeteries. In most places it is possible to hire a cab to take you around for several hours. Could we do that? How much would it be? A one hour island overview from the ship would be65.00 each (for two people). I'd like to think I could do at least that well and for longer and maybe visit the museum.

    I'd also like to snorkel but the snorkeling trip is110.00 each.

    Hi all! Can anybody tell me the best / most cost effective way to get from Anguilla to St. Barth's? I looked at the Anguilla Air Services website, but200/person seems like a lot. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    My husband and I will be arriving in St. Bart's in January aboard the Quest. We are interested in touring the island with a private guide or hiring an English speaking taxi driver to show us the island. Any one know of a tour guide or have info on the cost and availability of taxis? Thanks, Lu

    Nightlife in St. Barth's

    by Geisha_Girl Online Now Jan 6, 2007 at 3:51 PM

    Hello,

    We're in the midst of booking accomodations on the island but wanted to find out first the most centrally located area to stay. Something close to all the shops, restaurants, and clubs would be great! Is Gustavia the area we should be staying in?

    Also, is renting a car necessary here?

    Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    St. Barths in July?

    by jbel2879 Online Now Jul 27, 2006 at 11:33 AM

    Considering St. Barth's for honeymoon starting July 2 next year. What do you all think - too risky? Too close to hurrican season? Or do hurricanes start later?

    Thanks!

    Places to stay on St. Barths

    by Tony&Cheri Online Now Mar 17, 2006 at 10:06 AM

    We visit St. Martin every year but would like to relax afterwards on St. Barths for an extra 4 or 5 days this time. Eden Roc would be our first choice of hotels of course but does anybody have a favorite place they have stayed at on the island?

    Looking for a quiet, small hotel that may have a summer special rate as we are going in July.

    Thanks
