Language, Currency, Entry
The language is English, the currency is the U.S dollar. U.S. citizens do not need a passport, (although frequently airline counter agents will ask for one when you are departing the U.S., but is not needed). Just be sure to have a valid proof of citizenship with a photograph, which you will need to show when leaving St. Croix.

Virgin Islanders - People living on St. Croix are called Crucians (pronounced cruzan - which is also the trade name of the island's renown locally made rum!) They are friendly, and a smile and "good morning" are expected good manners. Everyone speaks English, with the melodic accents and Creole influence of the Caribbean. Their heritage is of African traditions and the influence of seven settling nations, including French, Dutch, Spanish, British, Danish, and even the Knights of Malta, before becoming US citizens in 1917.

Time - The islands are on Atlantic Standard time, and never change their clocks. In the winter months, we are one hour LATER than Eastern Time.(9pm here, 8pm in New York!) In the summer, we are the same as the east coast when they are on Daylight Savings time.

Holidays - U.S. Federal holidays are observed, plus more than 20 local holidays! The government closes for all, the banks for most. Even the locals want to vacation and relax here!

Unique Charm

St. Croix is the largest of three major U.S. Virgin Islands, but is affectionately called the "sleeping Virgin" because the crowds of tourists annually visiting St. Thomas and St. John haven't yet discovered the tranquility and charm of St. Croix.
