Viya – The vibe that connects us!

While many people are not big fans of bugs, St. Croix is an entemologist’s dream! Yes, we have those pesky mosquitoes, but the island is also host to a number of wonderfully strange and sometime even beautiful insects and bugs. For example, if you look in the frangipani trees you may spot the colorful sphinx moth caterpillars munching on leaves. As you make your way around the island you will see lots of colorful little butterflies and moths fluttering around the flowers and bushes.

Keep your eyes open, you never know what you may find!
