Introducing US Virgin Islands

St John is the greenest island, literally and figuratively. It cloaks two-thirds of its area in parkland and sublime beaches, ripe for hiking and snorkeling. It also leads the way in environmental preservation, with limited development and several low-impact tent-resorts for lodging.

Dizzying cruise-ship traffic and big resorts nibbling its edges make St Thomas the most commercialized island. St Croix is the odd island out, located far from its siblings and offering a mix of rainforest, sugar plantations, old forts and great scuba diving.

Relocating to the U.S. Virgin Islands

Relocating to the U.S. Virgin Islands

Relocating to the U.S. Virgin Islands is many people's favorite fantasy.  However if you plan to really do it there are some things you should know before taking the blind leap of faith.  Although the U.S. Virgin Islands is an United States Territory and all the citizens are also United States citizens, they cannot vote in Presidential elections.  Also there is no voting representative in the U.S. Congress to represent the Territory.

Cisterns:  We mostly collect our  water in cisterns for home use.  Some housing located in the town areas are serviced by WAPA who provides desalinated water from their distribution plant. This is usually rationed during times of  drought.  If you run out of water, you will have to call a water truck to deliver water to your home.  All homes using cisterns must also have a pump to pump the water into the house.  Learning how to prime a pump is something that may come in handy.

Climate:  Sunny & beautiful, like all the best days of summer all year!  However if you live near the sea your metals will rust much faster.  One of the things that can be affected is your computer hard drive.  An air conditioned room will help. 

Hurricane season makes up for all the great weather we have here.  Generally the better the view the more threat a hurricane will be to your residence.  Check out the FEMA website to know how to prepare yourself and your family.  Every family member must own his or her own personal flashlight for when the power goes out! Head lamps are especially useful because they can be used with no hands.
