Suggestions for Kids 3 and 5 year old

Recommended Posts

We are taking our first family vacaiton (not visiting other people!) in January and one of our stops is in St. Thomas.

What would be some good stuff to do on the island with our kids for the day?

We will be bringing a stroller if needed and our kids can walk (slowly).

We are SUPER excited to go on this family trip and want to enjoy every minute of it as much as possible.  Thanks!

Most families go to a beach. The beaches in the VI are family friendly (Coki might be an exception to some people because there's a good chance you'll smell weed). 
Coral World is great for kiddies because they get to touch many animals. It's next door to Coki Beach so if you get a spot on the beach closest to Coral World it's a better atmosphere though it gets crowded. Best to go as early as you can.

How do you get to the beaches from the cruise port?

When you get off the ship there will be people offering taxi services. Just tell them where you want to go and they will show you which taxi to get into. The taxis are regulated so prices are fixed, ask the price before you get in.

Most of the taxis on St Thomas are converted pick up trucks with benches across the back and a canopy for cover. They are open air and can hold up to 20+ passengers. There are no car seats - you'll be holding the 3 year old.

 

You can ask the taxi dispatcher if any taxi has a car seat, but it's very unlikely.

 

You can Google St Thomas taxi and images to see what they look like. The taxi fares are also online.

 

Taxis charge by destination per person. The posted rates don't have children's rates so the drivers have discretion on whether or not to give a discount for children.
