Want to vacation like the bachelor on ABC’s hit show, The Bachelor? Head to St. Croix, America’s Caribbean. This week’s episode showed Sean Lowe and the six remaining bachelorettes enjoying the island’s many splendored things. St. Croix is a good catch for a quick vacation getaway – romance, culture, history, fine dining and great beaches await.
Do what the bachelor did and take in sunrise at Point Udall, the easternmost point of the United States. The most convenient way to enjoy dawn there is with a stay at nearby Divi Carina Bay Resort, only a five-minute and very scenic drive away.
Every Sunday morning at 9:30, those seeking exercise and adventure meet in the hotel lobby for a hike through the hills to Point Udall National Park. The excursion lasts about two hours, stopping along the way at the exclusive Jacks and Isaacs Bay beaches for an optional swim. Hikers finish at the point to take in a breathtaking view.
Those jumpin’ and jivin’ masked dancers on this week’s episode of The Bachelor are mocko jumbies, a cultural fixture of St Croix. No worries about scheduling a vacation to catch the dancers at one of the island’s many festivals or parades. Every Thursday there is a mocko jumbie performance at the Caribbean Beach BBQ at Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino. Dinner on the beachfront is at 6:00pm, entertainment at 7:30pm. Children are welcome. Reservations required.
And, who doesn’t love a guy with good financial smarts? Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Resort offers a free night in their One Sweet Deal promotion. Book five nights, get one free until April 15. The package includes meals and drinks, matchplay at the casino, island activity book and a sampler of Cruzan Rum, distilled and bottled on St. Croix. No doubt the bachelor and his bachelorettes sipped a little Cruzan rum while on in the island. When in St. Croix, do as the bachelor does.
