We took the Cruzan Rum Factory tour and it was a lot of fun!

Of course you can now also take the Captain Morgan distillery tour, but they don't have CRUZAN RUM!

All windows and the porch had bars. Like I said we never felt a threat but it was sad to see this much prevention needed.

The condo that I stay at has bars on the windows and a means to bar the porch doors also (upstairs and downstairs.) I think it's pretty common because people tend to leave windows open. Funny I never really thought of them for security before (guess I thought it was the style, lol), even though I know that's what they're for.

Two signs I need to get back to ST. Croix: 1) Finished 3 bottle sof Cruzan Rum in last 2 weeks - need more 2) My aunt-in-law (who lives there) invited us back just a few hours ago!!!!!!!! Now to make it happen.

Great report. I think you covered it well. I also would add that there is lots of good eats on the island.

We were too busy diving to explore the culinary treats of STX :clearmask:

Thanks for the great write-up! We leave this coming Saturday for STX and we are even more excited after reading your review. We're staying in a VRBO condo and diving with Cane Bay. Sounds like we're in for a great time!

Heading that way next month...can't wait to hit the water! Any info on check dives? Weather and timing here at home look poor for the next few weeks so I may have to wait until we arrive.

Hi PlantationBelle - The forecast for our week at the end of May was for rain every day. Turned out to be a few showers here and there, nothing dramatic or limiting our diving. The air temps were in the high 80s and the water a constant 80F. Have fun and let us know your experience.
