Same here. Only in port for 4 hours.
Having been to St. Maarten several times we usually jut go to Maho beach out by the airport. There usually isn't anyone there but was suprised to find it overrun with tourist. Guess the advent of YouTube and the internet let the cat out of the bag. Also, couldn't believe the prices in Philipsberg. Skyrocketted!!
Having been here many times did not go into town. Just got off at the tourist town and got t-shirts for the grandkids
