Got in on the Delta mistake fare to Saint Croix where someone had likely put the base fare in as 8 dollars instead of 800 dollars because taxes are approximately 65 bucks and the fare was 73 dollars round trip DAL-STX. Normal price on this route is about 865 dollars.
We spent 48 hours on Saint Croix in the middle of January. What a great get away from the cold crap of winter. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the island. We stayed in a condo from booking.com in Christiansted. Driving on the left was weird. The highlight was definitely the beer drinking pig! And the beach.
