  • How?s The Hurricane Recovery Coming Along in St. Thomas and St. John?
    We spent all of last week proving that #StCroixIsOpen; that despite being hit by Hurricane Maria 100+ days ago, our home island has rebounded beautifully and is, right now, more ready to welcome visitors in more ways than some might previously have thought. That’s all great, of course, but it also begs a question: What about the other U.S. Virgin Islands? St. Thomas and St. John were impacted much more severely by last year’s Hurricane Season than St. Croix, the two sustaining direct hits from Hurricane Irma in early-September followed by a glancing blow from Maria just two weeks later. How are St. The post How’s The Hurricane Recovery Coming Along in St. Thomas and St. John? appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • Taste Of The Caribbean: Le Bokit Magnifique de Guadeloupe
    What to say, what to say? What to do, what to do? It’s one of my Dad’s favorite expressions; one he employs whenever he’s exasperated over anything. The words rang through my head on day three of my last visit to Guadeloupe back in April. The reason… Food. As noted previously, I was surprisingly underwhelmed by the cuisine I encountered along much of my adventuring in and around the Guadeloupe Islands. By the time I hit the ferry to Terre-de-Haut, the small in size/big on charm islet in Les Saintes, any great expectations I might’ve had for phenomenal food had all but vanished.

  • Photo Of The Day: Enjoying My Traditional ?Sea Drink? in Haiti
    Quirks, foibles, peculiar habits… Whether we like to admit it or not, we all have them: our own special little idiosyncrasies that, in many ways, inform our true selves; our loves, leanings, fears, and follies. One quirk that’s been a constant of mine throughout my travels ? sipping sea water. Somewhere, long ago, I developed the habit of taking a small sip of sea water the very first time I happen to step on a beach everywhere I go. I have no real reason for doing this, of course. The salty sips do nothing to quench my thirst, and yeah, I’m well-aware of the health risks.

  • After Maria, Rainbows Reflect a Rosy Future for St. Croix
    After every storm, a rainbow… We’ve referenced the old saying before relative to past hurricanes that have impacted St. Croix. Somehow, though, the rainbows this time, little more than 100 days post-Hurricane Maria, seems different. The colors are more vibrant this time; their wattage, like the outlook for St. Croix herself, a good bit brighter. Over the past seven days, we’ve shown you the proof. Rapidly rebounding beaches and natural wonders, a stylish new hotel in Frederiksted, an exciting new hotel development for Christiansted, new excursions down Salt River, the timeless awesomeness of Sandy Point, Buck Island, La Reine Chicken Shack, The Buccaneer, Rhythms at Rainbow Beach ? St. The post After Maria, Rainbows Reflect a Rosy Future for St. Croix appeared first on Uncommon Caribbean.

  • New and Improved Sunday Funday in St. Croix
    Sunday Funday is so sweet in St. Croix that it’s easy to think the whole thing was invented there. The typical beach party circuit my friends and I followed during our childhood years always started on the brilliant sands pictured above ? Sandy Point, the best beach in the world. As we’ve already shown, Sandy Point, along with most every other beach on St. Croix, fared very well in the face of Hurricane Maria, the lot of them having already bounced back to their original glory. But what of our favorite beach bar on the island, Rhythms at Rainbow Beach? Following the demise of the Sundowner long ago, Rainbow became a must second stop on our typical Sunday Funday itinerary.

  • The Past is Passed ? On Being Present in Sunny St. Croix
    We’ve spent the last week glavanting all over a post-Maria St. Croix ? hiking to brilliant beaches, checking out the island’s first new hotel in decades, chatting up fisherman, and pretty much anyone who would let us point a camera at them, but sometimes, to really get the feel of a place at any moment in time, you simply need to sit and be present. For our St. Croix Moment of Zen we could have picked any number of celebrated places (Turtle Beach anyone?), but there was just something about this bench shaded by its windswept companion on the southeastern coast that spoke to us.

  • Explore St. Croix?s Diversity, Nature, and History on Horseback with Cowboy Steve
    There are three things that really set St. Croix apart from other places: its diversity, natural splendor, and rich cultural heritage or history. You can find these unique aspects of our home on almost any of its 84 square miles, but there’s something extraordinary about experiencing them all on horseback with an easy-going Irishman like Cowboy Steve. Diversity African, South American, European, Middle Eastern, Asian, North American, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Down-Island; St. Croix has it all. The best experiences on-island usually draw from the influences of that diverse pool of immigrants, while staying true to the native Crucian culture. And so it was with my ride.

  • How St. Croix Is Doing Right Now, As Told by Those Who Live There
    Everything is coming good. I’d never met Alberto Baptiste before. Our paths crossed on an especially warm December Monday just a few weeks ago on King Street in Frederiksted. I was on my way to check out The Fred, St. Croix’s newest hotel. Alberto was engaged in one of my favorite island pastimes: limin‘ in the shade. Limin’ on King Street in Frederiksted, St. Croix | SBPR Naturally, we struck up a conversation. There were things, it seemed, Alberto wanted me to know. About Hurricane Maria, its impact on St. Croix… on his life. A lot of roof gone, galvanize in the streets… a lot of cars get damaged.

  • The Greening of St. Croix?s Jack and Isaac Bays Preserve
    After hurricanes Irma and Maria pounded several islands in the Caribbean and St. Croix in particular, the mainstream media ran article after article on the browning of our once verdant paradise. Three months on, let me provide an update with some images from my recent hike out to Isaac Bay. The Jack and Isaac Bays Preserve As Steve mentioned previously, The Jack and Isaac Bays Preserve covers around 300 acres on the easternmost end of St. Croix. An area that historically saw little traffic in our youth, this area is now a sweeping natural wonder complete with breathtaking views along low-impact trails still mostly traversed by hermit crabs of all sizes.

  • View With A Room: Hotel Caravelle, St. Croix
    The show plays out daily right beneath your window at Hotel Caravelle much as it has since the town of Christiansted, St. Croix was founded more than 280 years ago  ? a cavalcade of seafaring vessels of all types and sizes alternately bobbing at anchor or bustling about the limpid seas in and around Christiansted Harbor. Boats at rest in Christiansted Harbor, St. Croix | SBPR If you’ve ever stayed at Hotel Caravelle over the venerable property’s nearly 50 years in operation, then you’ve seen the show before. I had, though never quite to the degree that I enjoyed during the two nights Patrick and I stayed there in mid-December.
