If you love to shop, you’ll find it hard to resist the best duty-free shopping in the Caribbean. With an allowance of $1,600, double that of other islands, U.S. residents can enjoy the shopping experience. You may send gifts to friends and relatives (excluding tobacco and alcohol), but no more than one package per day to the same address — up to $100 in value. These items need not be declared.

U.S. residents, including children, are allowed to spend $1,600 without incurring any duty on goods purchased. You will need to complete a customs form for these items and may be asked to produce receipts, so it’s important to keep a good record of what you bought. Perfume, jewelry, tobacco, cameras, crystal, china and electronics are available for 30-60% off U.S. prices. If you’d like to take advantage of our great prices on liquor, take back up to six bottles, as long as one is made in the Virgin Islands (such as Cruzan Rum).

In St. Croix’s historic towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted, unique shopping opportunities abound. The Christiansted Boardwalk, Company Street, Kings Alley Walk, Caravelle Arcade and the PanAm Pavilion all provide shopping opportunities in Christiansted. Take a stroll on Frederiksted’s Strand Street for great shops.
