Default St. John

Is the taxi ride to red hook and the taxi ride to trunk bay scary? I read on another site that it is treacherous driving conditions- bad drivers, winding roads, etc.
We had a bad experience in the bahamas with horrible, dangerous taxi drivers, I don't want to go through that again, especially since I will have kids with me this time. Thanks, Kathy T.

the ferry ride can be a bit choppy, especially if its windy.
As for the cabbies, well lets just say that they drive very aggressivly, as do all the locals, that's just the way it is. The roads are narrow, steep and windy, but the views are breathtaking. Its interesting to say the least. Horrific by no means

Kathy - There's no way on this planet any of the drivers in the Caribbean can be any worse than a NYC cab driver. I can say that as I lived/worked there.
