"Great shopping" Sint Maarten Favorite Tip by myfuninthesun

Sint Maarten General: 24 reviews and 35 photos

Favorite thing: If you are looking for bargains, the Dutch side of the island is the place to go. The French side is beautiful but shopping is expensive. We have been here many times on different cruises. One time, no one knew (until we arrived) but it was St. Maarten Day, so no stores (not even 1) was open. Most people just got back on the ship but we followed the sound of the drums from the local parade and were treated to a glimpse of the local culture.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
