We’re off! To discover a tropical paradise in the Caribbean Sea! We’ll explore the busy interior of St. Thomas and Charlotte Amalie. We’ll also take a private chartered yacht out to sea. Then we’ll journey to the rum-loving island of Puerto Rico. And take an exclusive aerial tour for a bird’s eye view. The Virgin Islands and Puerto lie just south of Cuba in the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. To the east are the British Virgin Islands, and west, the US Virgin Islands, about 40 miles away from Puerto Rico.
The us virgin islands have about as much maritime history as the Caribbean ocean is deep. 6 different national flags flew over them before they officially became an American territory in 1917.at that time, the united states purchased the virgin islands from Denmark for $25 million in gold. You can enjoy shopping for clothing, china, crystal and cameras…jewelry, perfumes, art, and alcohol. All duty-free, of course. In the British Virgin Islands, you can wind through the maze of enormous rocks at “the baths” at virgin Gorda…Jump for joy off the floating bars of Norman Island…Enjoy the rum runners, pain killers, and lazy man’s hammocks at foxy’ s or snorkel in the beautiful waters and explore the treasures of Tortola.
Puerto Rico is Spanish for ‘rich port’…and true to its name, it’s an area rich in cultural…natural…and historic attractions. San Juan is not only Puerto Rico’s capital, it’s also one of the territory’s most important seaports…. And a really fun city to visit.
Take in the sun and rum as we explore the US Virgin Island and Puerto Rico!
