Charles Oropallo enjoys visiting St. Thomas very much with his wife, Susan Oropallo. It is an extremely beautiful island located to the east of Puerto Rico in the United States Virgin Islands. St. Thomas may very well be their favorite spot to vacation. When visiting St. Thomas, Charles and Susan stayed at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville resort. They have visited there in the month of February as well as in the month of October. Charles and Susan have enjoyed the island immensely both times.
February is considered to be during the prime season if visiting St. Thomas then. It’s certainly usually about the coldest time in New Hampshire, so visiting that time of year presents an extreme contrast in weather.
October, on the other hand, is during what is considered the hurricane season in the St. Thomas area. However, it is typically even hotter than in February. In October, it’s starting to cool down considerably in New Hampshire, so a trip then to St. Thomas is a great way to extend the summer. Charles and Susan did not find the higher heat to be uncomfortable. Hurricane Matthew during October 2016 severely damaged the United States east coast but did no damage at St. Thomas.
Another favorite activity while at St. Thomas is just hanging out on the beach getting sun and relaxing. Charles and Susan come back tanned or even burnt whatever time of year they visit the island. In the evenings – or even during the day for that matter – there is also the hot tub and swimming pool at Margaritaville where they stayed.
Besides the beauty of this island, the people there are great. They are very welcoming and friendly. It is a great place to visit and recommended for everyone’s bucket list.
Another of many of both Charles Oropallo and Susan Oropallo’s favorite activities when visiting St. Thomas is snorkeling. Whether it was February or October, snorkeling was an incredible adventure almost anywhere in the St. Thomas area. Margaritaville is within a short ten minute walk of Coki Beach. Coki Beach has white sand and blue water similar to the Florida Keys. It is right adjacent to the Coral World Ocean Park, worthwhile visiting while there. Charles and Susan visited Coki Beach and swam and snorkeled there each time they visited Margaritaville.
