Usvi st croix over other islands

Postby Mermaid » Tue Jun 24, 2014 11:38 pm

Hi, I visited St Croix 5years ago, and it is still in my mind. Now that I am looking at islands to move to, I keep coming back to St Croix.
While on the island we met several people from the states that were living and retired there. We felt a kinship with them all. Very good memories and I Do understand living there is different from visiting.
my husband is not an island kinda guy, so this move would be mainly me with him visiting. So I guess I am curious about crime! I have searched it and it seems low.
I plan to make another trip there within the next month and hope to run into some of the friendly people we met before.
we met some of them at the casino-poker room.
any pros or cons you could advise would be great!
Thanks
Mermaid

By far, I think it is your best choice, if you need to be on American territory soil. I lived on St Thomas and St John but often visited St Croix. Less crowded, more beautiful, open space and a great feel. Crime is crime, regardless of where you live. If it is a real concern, look at BVIs or further into the Caribbean, like Belize or somewhere in the Grenadines. Good luck and go for it on an island somewhere. Personally,I am all about Belize....wonderful people, ecotourism, easy on expats and all around just wonderful.

Thanks for your reply. It was very informative. I think I have narrowed my search down to St croix and Belize. My husband does like belize and we have a ton of research on it.

Please let us know what you decide. My husband and I have been toSTX twice and have decided to rent there for six weeks this coming winter. ( We have been going to STJ for over forty years.) I agree it would be the best of the three US Virgins for long term. There is crime everywhere these days.
Good luck

St Croix is awesome and it seems to be safer than Belize. Try http://www.thingstodoinstcroix.com/things-to-do.html for ideas and discounts.
