The Best Saint Martin Vacation Packages

Saint Martin is one of many Caribbean islands, but this one is unique in that it has two cultures and two different governments. One side is Dutch (St. Maarten) and the other side is French (St. Martin). There is a lot of overlap of course, but essentially the Dutch side is more liberal and has a more active nightlife. The French side is more laid back and relaxed. You could choose one or the other depending on your tastes, or you could take in both fairly easily. Understanding the differences could help you make your hotel choices. Either way, there are plenty of beaches and Caribbean style to give you a vacation in paradise. Keep reading to learn more about some great vacation offers that can make a trip there more affordable.

  1. Do you save money by buying a package deal?
    Reply

    Yes. Travel companies like Expedia or Travelocity put packages together that cost less than it would cost if you bought everything separately. For instance, the Grand Case Beach Club is $425 per night for two people. For a five night stay and airfare from Florida purchase separately, the cost would be near $2,000. Package deals run around $1,500 and sometimes even less.

  8. Does it matter whether I go to St. Martin or St. Maarten?
    Reply

    Not really. In fact, you often may not know which side you are on. The northern side is Dutch an the south side is French and there is plenty of overlap. The south side is a bit more laid back and there are some visual differences but it is a very friendly coexistence.
