Trip report

Just got back from a 13 day trip to St Croix. Our whole trip was great. Rented a car from Centerline and it went very smooth.

We spent 5 days at Carambola. Upgraded room and the hotel is gorgeous. We ate several meals there and did the Pirates Buffet which was fun and worth the money. Used the spa and Sweet Bottom dive shop. Nice people and easy to work with.Sat on the beach one night and saw a giant turtle come ashore and lay eggs. Pretty impressive.Did the See Thru Bioluminous Kayak with Craig and Bryce. Fun to kayak at night under the stars. The bioluminous tour was really cool.

Did the Gecko Land and Sea tour with Arlin. 1 1/2 hour atv and an hour jet ski and kayaking by Rythums bar. Had lunch there when done. Even got a coupon for buy one rum punch get one free. Ate pizza at Off the Wall. Short distance from the hotel. Really good. (Chicago equal).

Stayed at my brothers for 4 days. He took us to point udall, lunch at Good Spirits, great pulled pork highly recommend and dinner at Angry Nates. We had lunch at Hotel on the Cay, Buccaneer and Cheeseburgers in Paradise. All good.

Moved to Divi for 4 more nights. Not a 5 star but pleasantly surprised, the rooms clean and ocean front. Can't beat the price.

Food was good and drinks served by Scott were perfect. Had a BQ chicken pizza at East End Pizza would not have known about it without trip advisor along with everything else we did on this trip.

While we were there a poolside Country concert went on. Joe Nichols, Randy Rogers and Jessica Andrews performed. Great fun and a buffet dinner.

My husband went to Frederiksted to the N2 the Blue dive shop 2 days and did some boat dives. Very happy with the dive shop. Ate at Turtle Deli both days said the food was good and plentiful.

Did I mention we came to St Croix for a wedding? Not ours.

We had a rehersal dinner at Savants in the garden. Cozy and quaint. Great food.

The wedding was at Divi on the beach. They did a nice job decorating and we ate on the pier under a tent top.Food was excellent. Perfect night.

Some island music playing in the background. We had a nice brunch in the morning on the terrace.

We went to the casino and as usual I lost my $20.00 but my husband came out ahead $120.00. We share.

Wouldn't change a thing except need more time. Perfect trip.

Didn't lock car doors and didn't keep anything in the car. No problems. Everyone got a pat down at the airport. Not a big deal.

Thanks everyone for your input. Every place we went to was recommended. THANKS THANKS THANKS

Beach is nice at Divi with good water entry. The sand doesn't go out far though; it becomes a grass bottom. It's fine for swimming and there is good snorkeling on the west end of the beach; ask at the beach shack for directions.

Since I'm taking my wife on a surprise anniversary trip there in June (I already have our villa and car reserved), I really appreciate all the info re: places to eat, drink and visit. Thanks for sharing, and glad you had such a nice time.

You must do a Gecko land and sea tour. The ATV is a nice touring speed and the jet ski you take out yourself with your wife so you can go any speed you want. It was great fun. We are both 55 and loved the adventure. I know many people go to the tide pools but my husband has bad knees so we didn't do that.

We're an active 60 and 56, so that sounds great. It'll be a nice compliment to our diving and kayaking. Thanks for the advice.
