St Croix for mom and teen daughter??

Jump to last reply

I'm considering a one week stay at the Renaissance Carambola on St. Croix in June 2015 for myself and my 17 year old daughter. She's ready for another tropical beach vacation because we haven't had one since our vacation to Maui in 2011. We've been to Turks and Caicos twice and Grand Cayman once. We like to spend some time on the beach and at the pool, snorkel, and explore some. We usually stay at medium sized, mid-level price range resorts. I've read about snorkel trips to Buck Island, hiking to tide pools near the Renaissance, and the pirate buffet at the hotel. We've loved our past beach destinations and had plenty to do. I love visiting new places, but my daughter is asking for a return to Turks and Caicos and staying at the Sands Resort again. Do you think we will be disappointed with St. Croix and the Renaissance in comparison to our past vacations? I know this is subjective of course, but would appreciate any thoughts. Would exploring the island as two females alone be relatively safe? We always take common sense precautions, even in our own hometown that has a fair amount of violent crime.
