It is the best of both worlds..literally
It is 1/2 Dutch and 1/2 French with two distinct
languages and culture.
We only saw the Dutch side from the overlook.
We loved Mairgot -- the French side--because we
love France. It didn't take us long to find the
chocolate store and a creperie. Even the signs

|Yummy ....all of our favorites
Quiche, Croques Mousier
fromage & jambon baquettes
sucre and nutella crepes
|What's a little France...without a
Belgian chocolate store.
|Each time we visit we find the
same creperie, the chocolate
shop and the little grocery store
for French cheeses
Also, don't miss the open air
craft market down by the marina.
|Our first trip to St. Maarten we
booked through Shoretrips.com
and our guide took us around the
island for several photo taking
stops. After exploring
Marigot...Mom and the kids spent a
afternoon at the beach while Dad
went Scuba Diving
|Our third trip to St. Maarten....
"been there and done that"...
So we decided to split our group
and do something a little different
Dad, Amanda and Brent went on
a scuba diving trip offered by
Shoretrips.....Mom opted for a
day at the beach
|Nothing special....just a chair on a
crowded beach. A Welcome drink and a
nice lunch. The highlight was time alone
