St Martin

French and Dutch personalities on one fascinating Caribbean island!

About St Martin

This underrated island has a fascinating duality. Easy to cross between the French and Dutch side, it's like the island has two personalities. One side has sleeker hotels and large restaurants. On the other you have a more Caribbean, local feel, and gems that the locals know about but you can just as easily find and enjoy. My first time on the island was on a cruise ship and it just didn't give the island a fair shake. So don't judge based on a pit stop at their port! There's more to this island, especially for those who prefer to avoid the hoards of tourists.

What about the dancing?

There are Salsa and Kizomba teachers, each of which have done a great job in teaching at a good level within their small communities. You won't get the sheer numbers of dancers at a social that you would in the U.S. or Europe, but, again the level is good. They tend to hold socials in restaurant-bars with a genuine, island feel. 

Getting to St Martin

The St Martin Airport (SXM) hosts large airlines like Spirit and American Airlines. You can get a round-trip flight from Florida for as little as $120. 

St Martin is a perfect, inexpensive getaway to a unique location that isn't overrun with tourists. And bonus, you get to have some good dances in Salsa and Kizomba! The community here is close-knit and will love to dance with you!

We're planning a weekend getaway in St Martin!
