At the end of our week in Puerto Rico, we weren’t ready to come home, so we extended our stay in the Caribbean with a weekend in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The U.S. Virgin Islands are famous for beautiful white-sand beaches, turquoise waters and lush, verdant hills.
We spent a majority of our time on the island of St. John, two-thirds of which is covered by Virgin Islands National Park — almost 3,000 hectares of tropical rainforest, shoreline and pristine reefs. After two-days exploring St. John and the National Park, we spent our final night on small and secluded Water Island.
