    St. John is a very easy place to get around without your own car, though you might consider a rental for a day or two to explore on your own. Otherwise, hop one of the many taxis that ply the island, an easy and fun way to get around, not to mention meet some of the locals. There are a few limited bus services, plus plenty of hiking trails through 7,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park (http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/vi_virgi.htm), which covers almost half of the island.

    I love cycling and wouldn't want to dissuade anyone from it, but I can't honestly say St. John lends itself to cycling. I think I saw one person doing it the week I was there and he had calves of steel. The hills are steep and there is very little shoulder to avoid cars. Another option are the jitneys (open-aired buses) that go around the island. They stop at Maho pretty regularly I think.

    There are a few horseback-riding outfitters who offer trail rides through St. John's mountainous interior and along the beach. Try somewhere like The Carolina Corral (call 340-693-5778). St. Croix also has a well-regarded stable called Paul & Jill's Equestrian Stables.
