I agree totally! We were there January when a lot of things were getting a new start. We had a great time, met new people & friends, helped out the island & some of the people who have lost so much. the things we couldn't do that we normally would do in 3 weeks was not having the croissanterie in Marigot & petit casino in orient village. We were able to get groceries & eat out at a lot of places. A lot has changed for the positive since then so yes, "come prepared for different". You will have a great time!
