St. Croix Telecommunications
St. Croix telecommunications operate in much the same way as they do on the mainland USA, so visitors should have little trouble figuring out how to keep in touch with loved ones back home. All of the US Virgin Islands use a three digit area code (340) and seven-digit number; local and international dialing functions the same as it would elsewhere in North America.
There are several weekly publications and an online St. Croix newspaper to keep you up to date with regional happenings. The St. Croix Avis is a St. Croix newspaper geared more towards the island's residents, but it's a good source if you're looking to immerse yourself in the local culture. A more visitor-oriented St. Croix newspaper, St. Croix This Week, is free and can be picked up from most tourist centers. The Daily News, available in online form at www.virginislandsdailynews.com, isn't a St. Croix newspaper specifically but it's ideal for up-to-date information on the Virgin Islands. Visitors looking for news on a wider scale than what's available through a St. Croix newspaper should rest assured that several mainland papers, including The Miami Herald, are flown into St. Croix every day. Monthly newsmagazines are also widely available.
