Living in St. Croix – Where do You Start?
Is “Island Living” right for you? It’s not for everyone – Island Fever is a real problem for many. Here are some questions you should ask yourself:
• Do you get impatient easily? The pace in the Virgin Islands is much slower than on the mainland.
• Do you have an aversion to bugs, mosquitos, and creepy crawley things? It’s the tropics…we have critters!
• Do you object to drinking alcohol (or others doing so)? There is a lot of alcohol consumed here!
• Is shopping a big part of your life? We have plenty of stores, but they usually won’t have exactly what you want. And you won’t find Walmart or a shopping mall here.
Hopefully this short list will help you begin thinking about the “nuts and bolts” of daily life on an island. Check out our Relocation Guide for more insights to living here…to avoid unpleasant surprises! We have no regrets and are thrilled to be ambassadors of the Virgin Islands and help with your relocation.
