Weather

St. John is tropical in climate, the year-round average temperature is 85 degrees Fahrenheit. We enjoy light trade winds and the occasional scattered showers give a light reprieve from our beautiful sunny days.

Time Zone

St. John is in the Atlantic Standard Time zone, but we don’t move our clocks during daylight saving time. In fall/winter, we are one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time, and in spring/summer, we are the same as Eastern Standard Time.

Currency, Language & Driving

Local currency is the U.S. dollar, and English is the spoken language, although you will enjoy the lilting accent of the Caribbean locals. We drive on the left-hand side of the road, but our steering wheels are still on the left.
