I have a friend that is anxious to make her way down to the beach, but has an expired passport and no time to go get it renewed (busy schedule mixed with a hint of laziness). What would be her best options given her trip criteria:
• Typically books 30 days out (to work around son’s schedule)
• Like doing excursions
• Would need to be sometime in May-July
• And obviously, can travel without a passport
I think U.S. beaches are out of the running since she’s been to a few. I also suggested Puerto Rico but she has already been to San Juan and, as much as she loves Bacardi-cokes, was hesitant to go back before visiting some place new.
Is USVI the only other option? I know that St. Croix is the largest of the three saint islands, and they have pretty much everything you can ask for (good food, casino, historical sites, rum tours, shopping, great beaches). Are John and Thomas viable options?
