We took a taxi tour around St. John and we stopped to see the sugarcane ruins. Since it is part of the National Park system, it has been well maintained for visitors to see. There is no cost to visit.

Awesome ruins of an 18th century sugar plantation, and presumably the most accessible ones on the island. There's a nice parking lot at the bottom of the hill, and a wooden stairway leading up to the ruins. I've seen others say it's unsafe, but that...More

The Sugar Plantation and surrounding area sustained terrible damage from the CAT 5 Hurricanes that hit the island in 2017. There are many warning signs for falling debris, as the stone structures are collapsing from the high winds they were subjected to. Additionally, I don't...More
