    I'm not sure there are any ferries that operate between St. Maarten and Puerto Rico. If you are entirely opposed to flying, maybe you can try island hopping your way over to PR. Visit http://www.caribbeaninspired.com/caribbean/travel/island-ferry-travel.htm for ferry prices.

    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

    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.

    Yes, it would be best if you had a personal guide because they know where to go, especially since you are only going to be there for one day.
