March 27, 2017 – Foodie travelers flock annually to the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience, a three-day gustatory showcase featuring the island’s well-known and growing culinary talent.


Every spring, chefs and food and wine lovers arrive on St. Croix to enjoy innovative cuisine right in the heart of the U.S. Virgin Islands—and to savor the beautiful Caribbean weather that is typical of early April.


Divi Carina Bay All-Inclusive Beach Resort  is well-positioned to host these travelers because it is the location of the festival’s premier opening event on April 6, 2017: the Taste of St. Croix.


Attendees of the Taste of St. Croix can sample authentic regional fare, celebrity chef creations and special vintages from wineries around the globe. Year after year, it is a sellout event, but in 2017 it may be slightly easier to score tickets. Divi Carina Bay All-Inclusive Beach Resort’s Taste of St. Croix package ( offers a special discounted rate of $167 per person per night* that includes a free ticket for each registered guest to the Taste of St. Croix (a $95 value per ticket). With the resort’s three on-site restaurants, two freshwater pools and plenty of fun activities and amenities, guests can also enjoy all the benefits of an all-inclusive resort. (Divi Carina Bay is the only all-inclusive resort on the island of St. Croix.)


St. Croix travelers also have an opportunity to receive a $300 travel voucher this year. The U.S. Virgin Islands are commemorating a special date this year on March 31—the 100th anniversary of “Transfer Day,” when Denmark sold the islands to the U.S. To celebrate this landmark event, the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Croix among them) are giving visitors a $300 voucher to be used on “Historical/Cultural Tours and Activities.” This can be redeemed at participating resorts, including Divi Carina Bay.


St. Croix is already one of the easiest and most budget-friendly Caribbean islands to visit, since U.S. citizens don’t need a passport and airfare often runs about $300 round-trip from many cities on the East Coast. With the $300 voucher, travelers can essentially be reimbursed for airfare.
