With ribbons of white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters, you may opt to spend your time swaying in a hammock, while staring lazily at the horizon or you get the blood pumping by hitting the water for some of the Caribbean’s best scuba diving, kayaking, and jet-skiing. Just be sure to make time to experience the amazing culture of the USVI, “America’s Paradise,” on any one of her islands: St. John, St. Croix and last, but not least, St. Thomas.
Take a break from the beach scene and escape to the hiking trails of Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, a quick water taxi or sailboat ride away from St. Thomas. Here you can find ancient petroglyphs amid the verdant tropical rainforest in the Caribbean! Try horseback riding in the Caribbean Sea, experience eco tours, or pedal off to explore the island with a bike tour.
Home to a rich culture heritage, influenced by seven different nations, the USVI offers you the opportunity to stroll through historic towns, visit old forts and historic sites. Take a self-guided tour of St. Croix’s Fort Christiansvaern or the high ground “bunker” of Fort Segarra on St. Thomas. Explore and uncover the history of St. John by visiting the ruins of Susannaberg Plantation or Catherineberg Estate. There is no shortage of museums to get your cultural fix, like the Estate Whim Museum on St. Croix. Seek out the inviting rhythms of quelbe music, the official music of the USVI, and dance the night away.
Find unique souvenirs as you wander through the many galleries, including Gallery St. Thomas featuring the work of local artists. Be sure to try some of the island dishes, too, including fungi and the popular vegetable dish callaloo, both, usually served with salt fish. Dine like a local on stewed oxtail or goat meat. Oh, and don’t forget the rum! The USVI is home to the popular Captain Morgan and Cruzan Rum Distilleries.
Our all-inclusive resort vacationers will enjoy one of our preferred partners, the Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino, a favorite on St. Croix and mere steps from the beach. This Adult-Only All-Inclusive Resort features everything you need for a relaxing getaway with six restaurants and three bars as well as daytime and evening entertainment to keep you busy late into the evenings. Non-motorized water sports will fill your days after a spa treatment or a full morning lounging on the beachfront and poolside cabanas. The perfect place to bliss out. In case there isn’t enough activity to reach your physical exertion, be sure to workout at the 24-hour fitness center. Everything you need and more is there, just for you.
Exclusive villas throughout America’s Paradise come with your choice of a full staff to take care of your every need to a modest mid-week cleaning during a one week stay. Your family and friends can enjoy an exclusive tropical retreat, all your own. Share your goals with your Superior Agent to tap into the variety of amenity-filled properties at their fingertips and find the perfect villa for your custom private retreat.
For a real sense of the USVI culture, book a trip during the Carnival celebrations. Each of the main islands celebrates at a different time of year: Spring (April/May) St. Thomas, Summer (June/July) St. John, and Winter (December) St. Croix. Your Superior Agent can help you indulge in parades, Calypso shows, and colorful pageantry along with delicious cuisine and inviting merriment!
Since the USVI is a US Territory, it is very easy to travel to and you don’t need a passport! Your valid, enhanced driver’s license will do, however, if you do have a passport, we always recommend carrying it for travel.
Take a direct flight from Boston, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Philadelphia, Tampa, Charlotte, Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale and of course, Miami! While you can connect from anywhere, some flight schedules are seasonal. Your Superior Agent will ensure you have the easiest routing, so you can start your vacation as soon as possible!
