Take a minute to look over these helpful tips to make your St. Croix vacation go a bit smoother.
What To Bring And How To Wear It
Life here in the Caribbean is very laid back and relaxed. However, if you feel that you can not live with out your blow dryers, curling irons or electric razors, you’ll be happy to know that an adapter is not necessary. Of course, you are going to want to bring your swimsuit, but please, bring something to wear over it when in public. Island dress is casual, but bathing suits, short shorts and shirts that are unbuttoned are usually frowned upon while walking around town or in stores. Cotton clothes are preferred to avoid overheating. Men usually do not wear ties or jackets and nobody bothers with rain coats. Hats and sunscreen are a must to protect you from the sun. Even if you tan easily, the sun will burn you if you’re not prepared, ruining what could be your best vacation.
Communication With The Outside World
If you can’t pull yourself away from the hustle and bustle of stateside life, St. Croix can accommodate you. Our local telephone calls from coin-operated phones are 25 cents for each five minutes. Our local area code is 340. We are part of the U.S. Postal System with first class mail, priority and express mail being your best bet. On St. Croix we have six post offices to serve you. There are two in Christiansted, Gallows Bay, Kingshill, Sunny Isle, and Frederiksted.
