I'm late 30s, and my wife is 7 years younger, from the midwest. We first went to SXM on our honeymoon in 2012. Went back the next 3 years, every year around the same time (Dec).

Always stay on the French side, either Anse Marcel, Grand Case, or most recently, Orient Village. The Village is our favorite now.

Unfortunately, we won't make it back this year - but for a happy reason. Just had our first baby. Not sure what that does to our normal SXM routine moving forward... but we'll figure it out eventually. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Smile.gif" alt="" />

Mid 50's from New jersey, landed in SXM on a trade out of Mexico in 1998 and bought a TS on that trip. have been going every year since although last year was our last. We have purchased a home in western Puerto Rico, my first love(surfing) and plan to hang our hats there for the remainder! We will miss it!

My wife & I just turned 60, we've been coming since 1994. Trip #40 is coming up in June 2017. It's an easy jump for us from CLT as we reside in upstate SC.

We're in our early 60's originally from NY a long time ago. Semi-retired on the eastern shore of Maryland now. We've been hooked on SXM since our first trip in 1988 when some relatives offered us their timeshare. Looking forward to going again in August.

The following is by no means scientific and in honesty, I cannot guarantee with absolute certainty the accuracy, but based on the info given it looks like the vast majority of visitors to our friendly island fall in the 50 to 70 age bracket with the sixty year olds numbering at least 119. Thirty and forty year olds numbered 37 and we had two eighty year olds that I could actually count. I guess the twenty year olds all go to Miami's South Beach since there were none on our list.

As expected, the vast majority of visitors who posted came from the northeast - CT with fourteen; MA with 22; NJ with 23; and NY with 27. The surprise to me was Michigan who also had 23 known posters and really not too surprisingly, Canada had 29.

And to clarify a bit, many who posted in the thread didn't give ages and some gave no indication of where they were from so these numbers are only reflective of those who could be clearly be identified by age and/or location. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

Hey, thanks for the hard work! Not surprising that the demographic here is that old.

The Horny Toad does have small portable type AC now. Probably has had AC for about 10 years. Still no phones in rooms. If you need a phone you have to go to the office. No TV in rooms.

In a previous post, JD thought Betty Vaughn, the owner, is retiring this year.If true, it will be a big change. Debby, her daughter and Cherry, a loooog time employee are running the Toad.

Oops, thanx WhitandTamra for mentioning location. We were both born and raised in Long Island, NY and now live in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. (Not too far from WhitandTamra). I'm retired LEO and she is still employed.

Only in the bedroom. At least that's the case with the unit I just vacated.

OK, I thought the units had central air there now. Never stayed there myself, but it's a nice location.

Todd (46) & Melinda (42) from NW Washington State, about 65 mi north of Seattle. Our first trip to SXM was in 2001 when we were 26/29 years old *sigh*. We are heading back Jan 2018 for our 10th trip. We always stay on the French side in Orient Village. It's a lot easier to get to SXM now. Usually can go there in 1 stop - red eye out of SEA to either JFK/EWR/ATL and then down to the island. Actually flying through PHL for the first time this next trip.
