St. Thomas Weather

If you want to escape small children and crowds, you may want to find your bargain St. Thomas flights during the summer months! During the summer, stay near the water to be cooled by ocean breezes. Further inland the temperatures rise quickly while the area's lush vegetation dries out because of the heat.
Getting Around St. Thomas
In general, the island of St. Thomas is too big and too hilly to explore on foot, although specific areas such as towns and resort areas are ideal for pedestrians. From the time your flights to St. Thomas land, you can get around the island by bus or private tour, or you can rent a car and explore on your own (keep in mind, however, that traffic drives on the left). Private tours may be arranged with most taxi drivers, who will be happy to show you places the tour buses don't go. Drivers will also know how to time things to avoid crowds. You can also easily rent a car, but be aware that aggressive local drivers speed around turns and honk to say "hello" and "thank you."
