Fancy renting an entire island for your Caribbean getaway? This is the place to do it! Scattered across nearly 100 islands of varying sizes, the US Virgin Islands are the perfect place to indulge in a seaside vacation with all the frills gourmet seafood meals, yachts galore, cruises around the coast, and luxury spas. But if your budget is more modest, don't despair. Between St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix, you are sure to find an all inclusive vacation deal that will suit your travel needs perfectly.
Each island offers visitors something different, and if you want to get right to the heart and soul of the US Virgin Islands, go straight to St. Croix, where European and West Indian influences are more prevalent than anything American. There are windmills, forts, beautiful churches, rum distilleries, and sugar plantations, and since tourism is not the main industry, the vibe here is a lot more laid back than on cruise-passenger filled St. Thomas. But if art galleries, shops, and the buzz of city life are what you're looking for, stick to the main island where restaurants, designer stores, and chain hotels abound.
For nature lovers, St. John gives you plenty of options for ways to spend your vacation hike through the national park which covers most of the island, snorkel or scuba dive in the clear waters off the coast, or just lie on a beach that won't have more than a few like-minded tourists like yourself.
