Although a Caribbean vacation is usually associated with relaxation and basking in the sun, Virgin Islands vacations also offer plenty of opportunities for adventure. From kayaking and jet skiing to scuba diving and parasailing, the Caribbean offers a wide variety of fun adventure activities that will leave you breathless at the end of the day.
One of the most popular Caribbean adventure activities is horseback riding, in part because it is accessible to nearly every type of traveler. Whether you’re an adult or a child, an experienced or inexperienced rider, with a large group or traveling solo, horseback riding is a relatively safe and exciting way to explore the Caribbean. Here is a look at horseback riding in the St. John and St. Croix Virgin Islands.
St. John Virgin Islands: Usually located on the east side of the island, horseback and donkey rides take you through the beautiful island countryside and end with a breathtaking ride along the water.
