Camping In The Caribbean

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


Though not as cheap as you’d expect ($80), there are opportunities for setting up tent in the Caribbean as an alternative to high-price, resort accommodations, as Benji found out here, especially in St. John’s’ Maho and Cinnamon Bay campgrounds.

And the idea’s not new: “But on St. John, the expansiveness of its National Park, which encompasses two-thirds of the island, and the difficulty of transporting building materials act as barriers against hungry hoteliers. By contrast, low-tech campsites are easy to build, and in a few pockets of St. John’s almost uninterrupted coastline, they have been plying a steady trade for decades.”
