The Virgin Islands are popular year-round, and traditional accommodations can be expensive. Try booking a package deal that combines flights and accommodations, particularly those offered during the rainy season, which can save you hundreds of dollars. If you don't mind more of a self-serve vacation, try a vacation rental, a bed and breakfast or even camping. As for shopping and dining, stay away from the most touristy spots. Ask the property manager or receptionist at your hotel for tips on where to get great local food for cheap.
