We know what you’re thinking, and no, this isn’t a scam, it’s a real deal perk if you want to visit the US Virgin Islands in 2017. In case you’re wondering, the US Virgin Islands aren’t a drag. In fact, they’re practically paradise. What we’re saying is this: you probably didn’t need them to offer you money to go in the first place, but now that they are… seriously… what are you waiting for?
Wait… Why Are They Doing This?
Exactly one hundred years ago, the US took control of St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix (from Denmark). If you’re new to history and what this has meant for those islands in particular, this is definitely something to celebrate! These islands want us to celebrate with them, so they’re offering $300 for tourists to spend exploring the islands this year.
How Can It Be Spent?
They’re not giving you $300 to blow on Rum, the money is purposed to get you exploring the islands. Specifically, they really want you to learn more about the US’s West Indie islands via things like eco-tours, museums, food tours and kayaking adventures.
How Do You Claim That Money?
Pretty simple. All you actually need to do is book a three or more night trip to any one of the US Virgin Islands via VisitUSVI.com, and the department of tourism will send you $300 in credits. Go during the month of March (the month of the Centennial) and the Department of Tourism will throw in an extra souvenir just for good measure.
Where to Stay
If you’re looking for an epic vacation that includes exploring pristine beaches and luscious tropical forests, laying out on the beach or poolside, sipping top-shelf beverages and relaxing in state of the art spas… the US Virgin Islands is your place. All of the islands have several options accommodations that will suit every preference, style, and budget. The most popular choices include Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort in St. Thomas, Coconut Coast Villas in St. John, and The Buccaneer USVI in St. Croix. From nightly rates only to all inclusive options, you’re sure to find just the stay you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for just one more reason to book an unforgettable vacation in a tropical paradise, you’ve just found it. How often is it that you get paid to visit a place like the USVI? Don’t miss out… take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity this year!
