2. The Duty-Free Shopping
St. Thomas has some of the best tax-free, duty-free shopping in the Caribbean. There is no shortage of deals to be had, from art to jewelry to bottles of rum. If you are a US citizen you can exit the islands with $1,600 in duty-free goods, more than double than most other destinations. If you’re in need of a new watch, you can find some excellent deals on high-end brands. Perfumes are another popular purchase here, including all the familiar labels and some exotic scents from neighboring islands. Don’t forget to bring back a bottle of the St. Croix rum. Local artisan pottery is another quality item to buy on the islands. The hardest part will be fitting everything into your suitcase.
