My trip to St John at the end of September had to be cancelled due to the hurricane damage. Thankfully, my villa rental and airfare were refunded in full. I also had travel insurance (Cancel for any reason) but thankfully didn't have to use it.
Determined to get in a nice tropical non-Florida beach vacation during my child's fall break if I can, I checked packages for T&C, since it sounds like the resort area is decent enough to visit (has power, water, bldgs intact, restaurants open, gas), and Grace Bay is on my bucket list.
Surprisingly, the package for The Sands is priced very well, around $1500 total for 2 people for 5 days. Unbelievable.
So my question is, am I being a glutton for punishment to even consider booking another vacation during this time in that area of the Caribbean? Would you do it?
I considered going further south, but the airfare prices at this late date are too high for my budget. They actually dipped for Provo. From what I can tell, Provo is an easy short nonstop flight, and an easy getaway for a short but relaxing vacation in a beautiful place.
Wwyd? Is this nuts?
