Hotels [edit]

Any part of the island has a great choice of hotels. Premium hotels are dominating, but it is quite possible to find a cheap room in a family guesthouse.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Saint Martin International Airport (SXM).

In theory you can also get to Saint Martin by ferry. But in reality most of people first arrive to Saint Martin by plane, and next get by the water to the neighboring islands.

When to go [edit]

The weather is great all year round in Saint Martin. The rainy season lasts from September to November, but even that time weather is great in general.

In addition, many US tourists traditionally afraid of the hurricane season from June to October. But in reality a chance to meet a hurricane is just miserable.
