Spent lots of time trying to find American newspaper like Miami Herald we used to get every day we were here. Failed to find any paper except The Daily Herald (local).
No, not at airport, nor hotels, nor Philipsburg.
Guess that is not to be, yet.

Pretty sure the Miami Herald quit having the SXM edition after Irma and has not returned.

Did you intend for this post to go in SXM People Talk or the regular SXM forum?

I can move it, just tell me were you want it to be. Same with the rental car post you made.

Pretty sure it was discontinued after Irma. Hopefully it will come back at some point.

From what I recall, it was printed on the island. Not sure if by The Daily Herald but perhaps as tourists come back the edition will also.

I did find this by doing a quick search:

Newspapers

The Daily Herald is an English language newspaper published on Sint Maarten. The international edition of the Miami Herald is also printed right here on the island. In addition to these newspapers, visitors can pick up one or more of the publications directed toward them. To stay informed of what is happening during YOUR vacation week, pick up a copy of our very own print publication 'ST-MAARTEN.COM Weekend Edition'.
