Get Paid to Vacation in the U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands want you to vacation there real bad. Like, “We’ll give you $300 to come over” bad. As is the case with most $300 offers, though, there are a few catches. For those of us who are unfamiliar with the USVI (one of the sexiest places on earth, according to Instagram), they’re […]

Wait, did I hear that correctly? The government of the U.S. Virgin Islands is offering free money to people to visit their beautiful beaches? The U.S. Virgin Islands want you to vacation there real bad. Like, “We’ll give you $300 to come over” bad. As is the case with most $300 offers, though, there are a few catches.  Ah, the catches, and I’m not talking about the catch of the day, I’m talking about caveats.  Of course there is a catch, no one is giving away free money for nothing, this isn’t a Dire Straits song.

For those of us who are unfamiliar with the USVI, imagine any dream you had about a deserted island, that’s the Virgin Islands. They’re a group of Caribbean islands that became a United States territory in 1917 after the U.S. bought them from Denmark. Every year, the USVI celebrate that transfer of power on “Transfer Day,” a.k.a. March 31. So if you must know why anyone would need to offer someone $300 to take an island vacation in a tropical paradise, the reason is simply that it’s a celebration. This year marks the islands’ 100-year anniversary as a territory, so their tourism department is offering cash to people who plan to come to the island in 2017 in celebration of the milestone. Seems like a pretty sweet deal for anyone looking for a warm getaway in the harsh wintry months, no?

Here’s the catch: You can’t spend the $300 on whatever you want. If you book your 2017 trip through the U.S. Virgin Islands website, you get $300 in credits for vacation activities, which is good news if you’re the type of tourist who can blow three bills on frozen drinks at the poolside bar. The activities include things like “eco-tours, museums, food tours, and kayaking adventures,” as Thrillist reports. Free food? We are here for it.

So you don’t actually get paid in cash but instead in travel vouchers, that’s still not too bad.  You can only spend them in the Virgin Islands so don’t expect an influx of capital flowing in from the Caribbean.  

The credits are physical papers and can be used at any participating location. You can get a list of those by checking out the tourism board’s website, or you can just be super chill, show up and see where the island takes you. (Probably plan ahead, though. Just sayin’.)

A round trip plane ticket to the USVI costs around $200 from Miami if you play your flight cards right. So if you can see yourself sunning on a tropical beach, fanning yourself with $300 worth of vouchers, get booking, people.

Yea, thats $300 per person, so you see how many people are in your group and multiply, thats a lot of resort activities that are completely free.  I expect to see the lot of you in Hawaiian shirts trying your hand at jetskiing or sailing.  It’s not often that you get paid to go on vacation so i advise you to hop on this deal before its gone and yo are left paying for your own fun like a real jerk.

Think of the desert and your mind conjures up images of dry dusty lands full of cactus and crawly things. But there is a desert oasis in Southern California that will completely transform your vision of what a desert setting looks like. At Whitewater Preserve you will find 2,851 acres of streams loaded with trout, untouched wilderness and winding trails leading you into the mountains. Just north of Palm Springs and surrounded by the San Gorgonio Wilderness this is one desert destination that you will want to add to your bucket list. The rich habitat hosts the endangered Southwest willow flycatcher and Bell’s vireo, and provides the opportunity to see migrating summer tanagers and vermilion flycatchers. The canyon, an important wildlife corridor between the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains, has a robust wildlife population. 

 

 

This desert oasis is a perfect place for a nature adventure, whether by yourself or with the family. The Whitewater Trout Farm’s historic building has been transformed into a Ranger Station and Visitor Facility. This is the best place to start your adventure. Here you can get a trail map and checklists to help identify local flora and fauna. Although there are many hiking trails, some are not always safe to access. The Ranger Station will have information on any trails that have limited access. After you have spent some time exploring, enjoy the refreshing water at the shaded picnic area. 

 

 

Visitor facilities include individual and group picnic areas and camp grounds that sit in the shadow of steep cliffs where bighorn sheep are often spotted. Fishing is available, but limited to organized catch and release programs for children, in which all the equipment is supplied. There are a variety of hiking trails at Whitewater Preserve, you will find something for everyone. There are paver paths around the pond, perfect for the elderly, and a trailhead leading to the Pacific Crest Trail for the more experienced hiker. No matter what trail you take you will be out in the sun so make sure to bring a hat and use your sunscreen.

 

 

Whitewater Preserve is open daily year round from 8 am to 5 pm, closing only on certain holidays or in the event of dangerous weather conditions. Permits for camping, backcountry trip parking and after hour hiking are available at the Ranger Station during open hours.

The idea that our planet is changing is scary and it affects everyone. Global warming is happening at alarming rates, affecting sea levels and endangering some very special places. Humans in general are destroying the planet we live on and if we aren’t careful, we will lose some pretty amazing things. So what does this mean to travel, well, some of our planet’s greatest treasures are slowly disappearing.

Oceans are overtaking islands, glaciers are melting, ancient ruins are being weakened by pollution and whole cities are sinking. If any of these 7 amazing locations are on your bucket list, you better hurry up and check them out, because you never know, soon they may be gone.

Venice, Italy

Long heralded as the most romantic city on the planet, Venice may soon be completely uninhabitable. The city is known for its interconnecting waterways that carve through the entire city and make it accessible by boat.  

Slowly sinking, the city has been reporting severe flooding more and more each year. Scientists theorize that the entire city may be under water like the mystical city of Atlantis by the end of the century.  Global warming is slowly killing this wonderful city.

The City has been trying to slow the sinking by shoring up structures and building underwater reinforcements, but these fixes won’t last forever.

If you want to take a romantic gondola ride through the canals of Venice, Italy, you had better get on it, because who knows how long it will be above water.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are some of the most untouched nature preserves on the planet but unfortunately the islands are dying through years of tourism and ecological dilapidation. Poaching of animals is a serious problem here where sea life is incredibly diverse but also delicate. The ecosystems are being destroyed and the environmental disaster is only beginning. Many of the islands are much worse off than they were just 10 years ago. The special bionetwork will never recover and may eventually be absolutely ruined.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is known for it’s high levels of salt and the waters have substantial rejuvenation properties. Many people visit here for relief for psoriasis and arthritis, but soon the entire Dead Sea may be gone. The bordering countries have been slowly borrowing water from the River Jordan, the Dead Sea’s main tributary.   Slowly shrinking, the Dead Sea has dropped 80 feet and its volume is down a third. Scientists believe the sea will be gone in 50 years. Book your flights soon, or else it may be literally the Dead Sea.

Taj Mahal

The great Taj Mahal, one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World, may soon be too dilapidated for visitors.   Built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan as a gift to his wife, the Taj Mahal has 3 million tourists a year and this influx of people has seriously hurt the monument.   The building’s structural integrity has begun to be an issue due to air pollution, human traffic, global warming and poor maintenance. Soon the Taj Mahal will stop allowing guest inside and will all but kill the attraction.

Athabasca Glacier

The ancient glacier is a relic from the ice age and is the most visited glacier in North America. The spectacular glacier is quickly melting and has already receded almost a mile.  Global warming is the clear culprit in this iconic landmarks demise.  Scientists believe the glacier may fully disappear within 75 years. Located in Alberta, Canada, the glacier comes from the Columbia Ice Field and is simply one of the most beautiful natural sights.

The Seychelles

Possibly the most perfect beach location on the planet, The Seychelles Archipelago is a group of 115 island in the Indian Ocean. Often referred to as paradise on earth, these amazing islands are in real danger due to global warming. The rising sea levels and their coral reef destruction are making these islands vulnerable. Some scientists believe that the entire island chain could be fully submerged within 70 years. That’s a huge bummer as The Seychelles is at the top of my bucket list, as I want to see the island chains beauty before it’s too late.

 

Hurry up and see these amazing places before it’s too late.  Global warming is happening at alarming rates and if we don’t do something soon, our planet will be lost.  Make a change locally that affects everyone globally and be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
