Top Answers To St. Maarten (St. Martin) Travel Questions

    St. Martin is not generally associated with budget accommodation, given the supply-and-demand dynamic of such a small slide of paradise. Also, can depend hugely on whether you're traveling on- or off-season. You might try to look for timeshare units that are on the market for one-off stays. Otherwise, I'm a fan of HomeAway.com for its extensive inventory of vacation-rental units, including 610 in St. Martin/St. Maarten when I was researching this. VRBO.com is another site you should search, which also lists dozens of vacation-rental units in St. Martin/St. Maarten, too.

    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.....

    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.

    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
