The island of St. John
St. John has an enviable reputation as one of the best Caribbean tourist destinations, based not only on its white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. With a population of 4,197 (2000 Census) and covering 20 square miles, the island is culturally diverse and artistically vibrant. Its National Park is a virtual treasure trove of sunbathing, hiking, and ecological tours, while the park’s marine areas offer kayaking, sailing, and world-class diving. And the American flag flying overhead means that the island is safe, secure, and efficient.
The American dollar is used throughout the Virgin Islands, including St. John USVI, but foreign currency can be exchanged at all major bank branches on the island.
Entry requirements vary for each destination; it is your responsibility to verify you have the correct documents prior to travel. After 31 December 2006 a valid passport is required for travel to all the Caribbean and Mexico.
St. John USVI lies within Atlantic Standard Time, four hours behind Greenwich Mean Time.
Cars drive on the left-hand side of the road on St. John USVI (like England), while steering wheels will often be on the left as well (as in North America).
Outlets on St. John USVI use the same voltage as the mainland US, 110 volts.
Residents of St. John USVI mainly speak English, but with a Creole accent.
