I still have a lot of world to see but one of my favorite places so far is St. Criox in the USVI. After one of our Caribbean cruises, my husband and I decided to take a few days after the cruise and explore the islands.
We rented a small one bedroom basement apartment mid-island and picked up a rental car at the airport. The biggest adjustment when driving in the Virgin Islands is driving on the left side of the road. After that, exploring was easy, no matter how far you went in any direction you would eventually meet the ocean.
We planned our stay on the island when there were no cruise ships due to be docked. That way the island wouldn’t be real busy during our stay. I am so glad we did, it felt like we had the run of the island, no lines and the shops were never very busy.
There are so many reasons why we loved the island that I could write a dozen more blogs. But the biggest reason was how laid back it was there. The people were always friendly and the weather was always amazing! With only a few days to explore we managed to see most of the island and explore Christiansted and Frederiksted the two main towns on the island. There are plenty of shops for buying gifts and some great little cafes to eat at along the waterfronts. There is also the Cruzan Rum Distillery to visit if that’s your thing.
If you are looking for a laid back and calm island to visit, I highly recommend St Croix for your next relaxing vacation!
