After the hurricane damage not a fan of this island. Irritating vendors on the beach won't stop and I realize they are poor but it was disturbing. ...

St Maartin is a great island. The town is nice, with some old, narrow shopping streets. There is a water taxi that takes you into town from the cruise port for 7 bucks round trip. Taxis are available; however, they are fairly pricy, at least for single riders. We were told not to visit the French side, as they have some political unrest over there... ...

We took the trolley tour which stopped at the Amsterdam Cheese factory which has some very nice dutch import cheese and gifts. They also had delightful almond marzipan cookies. This inexpensive tour of Philipsburg was enjoyable and saved on walking while letting us sample some of the best shops. ...

There is a rich side ( Philipsburg) and a poorer, borderline side ( Margot area and associated villages). Hostile port agents, long waits to get off for a ship excursion. A bus drivearound showed a bit of each, some pretty views you may or not see depending on where you sit on a bus, a lot of rundown homes and junk in yards. Pullouts had trash and broken glass, so wear closed shoes. Would be ...

Still recovering from hurricane and Covid has made people desperate. I went to Orient beach on ship excursion. I didn’t like being masked. People were desperate and pushy because they needed to eat. Hope as ships return this will change ...
