U. S. Virgin Islands What to Pack

  • Mosquitto Repellent or Suffer!

    Be sure to bring mosquito repellent and After-bite. At certain times of the year, mosquitoes are plentiful and if you do not have mosquito repellent on, you will be bitten up all over.

  • Packing List

    There isn't really any specific type of bag you shouldn't take, but I do recommend taking a backpack you are comfortable carrying around with you for cameras, and other personal items.

    Travel light! You won't need heavy, bulky clothes so use a small bag. Chances are you'll encounter stairs, ferries, or small planes so you'll want to be able to manage your luggage easily. It's hot and humid so light breathable materials are best. Who really cares about wrinkles! Bathing suit (obviously) and beach shoes (like Tevas) for hiking...

    The best type of bag to take is one that is easy to carry, and not too heavy. Chances are, if you rent a car, most likely you will recieve a small, SUV type vehicle, we had a side-kick to negotiate the terrain we had to drive on to get to my cousin's house, but also the main attractions on the island such as the rainforest and remote beach access....
