St. Maarten is one of the best places to visit in the Caribbean. With its beautiful beaches (there are over thirty seven different beaches!) it is a perfect place to relax and take in some sun. The neat thing about this island is that it actually is part of TWO countries. It is half Dutch and half French! This makes for a unique culture and a fun way to soak yourself in a totally cool experience.
There are many different tours you can take to experience everything from shopping to history. There are wonderful sports activities for those of you that are looking for the active vacation. You can zip line over the rain forest or you can swim with the manta rays. For those of you that love the land more than the air or water, golf on the excellent courses.
For those of you that are seeking land locked adventure, visit the Heritage Museum. You will discover great information about the rich history of the island and the awesome geographical wonders offered on the island. Be sure to dine on some sumptuous food while you are there. Nowhere in the world will you find such great, fresh seafood.  A gourmet dream come true, there is a huge variety of cuisine to try. You will find French, Dutch, Caribbean, Indian foods and more! Dine a different style every day you won’t be disappointed! Take in the nightlife while you are there at the casinos or the clubs. You will find great things to do on the island day and night!
