Did you know that the US Virgin Islands are that close? St. Thomas is known for its duty free shopping, so buy a few gifts to take home with you … maybe some rum. Tourists can bring home $1200 in purchases without paying duty, this is twice the limit of most of the Caribbean. Jewelry is a big draw, or perhaps you’d like an embroidered tablecloth set – shop in Charlotte Amalie the main town or at Havensight where most of the cruise ships dock.

Stroll the streets, and browse the charming shops in unique historic buildings; Charlotte Amalie is considered to be the “duty-free shopping capital of the world” and has something for everyone..
