    Gail, take a look at some of the places featured in Away.com's new Best Resorts & Lodges Guide. Loads of amazing places to consider, some right on the beach, others tucked in jungle hideaways overlooking the Caribbean in places like Jamaica, St. Lucia, BVI, and more! Now's the time to head to the Caribbean, with many places offering great deals to get people traveling again! http://vacation.away.com/plan-a-trip/best-resorts-and-lodges-sp.html

    I made a mistake and called the second island Tintamarre. It should be Green Cay. This is the one you can get to by going to the Water Sport iat Club Orient. Going to Tintamarre is a daily tour arranged at Papagayo's restaurant. Sorry.....

    Lots of options, including the following: stroll the grounds of the island's Butterfly Farm; head up to Loterie Farm for hikes and a ride on the adventure center's zipline; browse for souvenirs and bargains on Phillipsburg's Front Street and in Back Street's Market Place; hit the water at Dawn Beach; take a ride on the Seaworld Explorer, a semi-submersible, on which the bottom deck takes you about five feet below the surface. Of course, you won't be able to do all the above in a day, but any of the above should keep you plenty busy!

    Hi Traveler. I can't be of too much help because we were in port at St. Maarten for just a day. The shopping is decent on both the French & Dutch side. Some of our fellow cruise ship fellows had a taxi take them on a loop around the island just to see everything. They said that this was a blast. Much like St. Thomas, Philipsburg has many jewelry shops (but do your research!) and the beaches all over the island are gorgeous. Go diving, rent a kayak or Hobie Cat, rent a bike and explore the island & history. If you like nightlife, St. Maarten/St.Martin have plenty of night clubs, casinos, beach bars, and even a St. Maarten Party Bus to bar hop all night.
