I'll second getting a sim card from mrsimcard.com. Just plug it into your phone once you get there and you're good to go with a local phone number.
The other way to do it - and what we've been doing the last couple of years - is to use the international day pass program. Both Verizon and ATT have one. It's $10/day. Works well.

Hi, I can definitely confirm the beach vendor warning sign was there pre Irma. I would end my morning beach walk at Bikini and head to Macaron for un café et deux croissants to take back for breakfast. Saw the sign daily. I would guess it’s a new sign, but it’s the same wording.

Looking forward to seeing the sign again in under six weeks

About 10 years ago I took the Star Clipper on a 7-day cruise out of St Martin. That is a 150 passenger sailing ship, but they offered free air fare and the trip was not that expensive. We went to some of the smaller islands. We started it off with a week at Orient Beach which made the trip even better. Checking in was on board the ship, so they did not needs a large port facility to manage the passengers getting off and on.

Does anyone actually know what the present noise ordinances are for Dutch St. Maarten? I know I don't. No music in an open setting above a certain decibel level after midnight? Or, maybe 2:00 a.m.? If these actually exist, then the Justice Minister could have them printed and redistributed to such venues with a warning that a fine will be imposed if a violation occurs. How likely is that to happen? Not very. But, there is one thing guests can do. Bring a supply of noise reduction ear plugs and use them when on the island. That's what we started doing a few years back and they do help. You'll never experience total silence, but it will reduce things to the point where you can get to sleep.

I think we got the timeshare in 2006 and still dunno if it’s “cost effective”. When we first got it we were Just out of med school and it was only blowing 9k on a place that would house our future family and be at a beach within15 min of landing. . Seem like a good idea time.
Having gotten here yesterday with rum runners at the beach within 15 min of getting off the plane, it’s still worth it to us.

We own a week in Saint Martin we only use it maybe every 3 to 4 years. Otherwise we traded for ski trips.

Would I do it again? Not sure. Await the new post Irma maintenance fees as well as rumors that EIC is trying to rid itself of timeshares...

Good afternoon,

For this boat charter, we have decided to try something different traveling in. We normally fly ATL-STT direct and then rush to ferry over and either find our hotel or sleep aboard around 5. Travel day seems such a PITA sometimes. We thought this time using FF miles, we might vacation our way in. Spend a day and night in San Juan, then catch an early flight to Beef a day before our charter. This will give us from 10AM one day until 4 the next to enjoy Tortola. Ideally, we would like to stay close to and enjoy Cane Garden Bay. We have stayed at Nanny Cay, Maria's, or an AirBNB at Apple Bay in the past. We could use Marriot points for Scrub. What are your experienced suggestions for one night stay in Tortola?

We'll be staying in a villa on Tortola Apr 20-27. Looking to meet other couples to explore the island, beaches, BVI and just have fun. We're a very healthy active 50's couple. Send us a way to contact you and we can see if we can meet-up.

Another well intentioned but useless crackdown? I wonder how long it will last this time around. You would think, given the prevalence of weapon supported crimes over the past few years, strict enforcement of this law would be a boon to law enforcement first off, and then the general public as well. At least, we thought so years ago when they had one of their previous crackdowns on same.

They need to improve their website, and better address the many questions that will arise (like those on this forum).


The website has a contact (you must click on link at top of page) which I think was Switzerland for questions.

Much as we enjoy Emerald Beach know that they are now bussing in cruise ship people ( no resort charge) and they really impact the place. I believe the info is right about " Hook Line and Sinker" opening for lunch..decent breakfast always at "The Petire Pump " room until 10.30.and they have Lox and Bagels!
