Giving our Wallets a Break in Sint Maarten

Giving our Wallets a Break in Sint Maarten

Phew, are you tired yet?  Because we were.  After 3 days of banana ketchup on St. Lucia, stunning views (and cows!) on Barbados, and exploring fortresses on St. Kitts, it was time for a beach break.  Which worked our perfectly because this break was necessary for our wallets as well.
We started out the day doing a little shopping near the port, which we quickly discovered was a bunch of touristy items- hats, shirts, prints (some which were very beautiful).  After what I remember being just a few minutes, this became boring/exhausting/ughh most likely due to the extreme heat.  

The views nearby were pretty nice, as well as the random waterfall we encountered (which provided a nice breeze of misty air).

We headed straight to the beach after that.  And didn’t look back.  After a few days running around the other islands, we needed a well-deserved break.
Don’t leave Sint Maarten without having a few of their Carib Lagers, the most widely available and quintessential beach beer in Sint Maarten.  Light, crisp, and refreshing, drop a lime in and it’ll beat Corona any day.  Voted as one of the 5 best Caribbean Beers, you’ll be sorry if you don’t have at least a few.
Also, don’t miss out on Maho Beach, where you can lay on your beach towel and watch the planes overhead.  We, unfortunately, did not have time.  

How Cool is That?

    St. Maarten is my favorite place! I go every year! Too bad you missed Maho-It truly is hilarious/frightening/amazing all at the same time. The best is when people stand right behind the plane engines and get blown back into the water! Cheers!
