WHAT YOU VISIT
Mountain Top
Home of the world famous banana daiquiri, Mountain Top rises 2,100 feet above St. Thomas. Step out onto the expansive observation deck for jaw-dropping views of 15 islands and cays. Lively Caribbean music and duty-free shopping add to the fun.

Villa Botanica
Once the site of a 220-acre sugar plantation dating back to the 1780s, the botanical gardens sit in the beautiful mountain top valley of Crown Mountain and Hawk 1,500 feet above Charlotte Amalie harbor. Upon arrival, you'll be led down the garden path of the five-and-a-half-acre grounds and hear a brief history of the plantation, and learn about local Caribbean flora, spices, herbs, culinary dishes and bush teas used in medicine by the locals.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Postcard perfect shots are a'plenty. Mountain Top boasts picture-perfect vistas of the Caribbean Sea, Magens Bay, St. John and the British Virgin Islands while Villa Botanica offers pretty photos of tropical plants, palms, cacti, fruit trees and gingers, an orchid garden, jungle grotto, spice and herb garden, and many exotic plants.

SNACKS
During your visit to Villa Botanica you'll be treated to a sampling of rum and bush tea (the official local beverage of the Virgin Islands).

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
A mix of city scapes and countryside will pass by your window as you travel into the island's interior and up into the verdant mountains.
