St Maarten/St Martin
This island offers one of the most unique destinations in the Caribbean. It is ideal for those looking for true European flair but in the relaxed atmosphere of the Caribbean. St. Maarten/St. Martin is shared by two countries: the northern part is French while the southern part is Dutch. A peaceful treaty dating 350 years was formed to keep out the Spanish.
Some of the most popular tourist towns and coves include Philipsburg, Great Bay, Mullet Bay Beach, Little Bay Beach and Maho Beach on the Dutch side; Grand Case, Marigot, Orient Bay and Anse Marcel on the French side.
With a breezy tropical climate the beaches are the biggest tourist attraction. You will find all water sports; diving, snorkeling, sailing and windsurfing. The island is also considered a shopping Mecca since most stores are duty-free. Gamblers will rejoice on the Dutch side, no less than 13 casinos may be found.
St. Maarten/St. Martin enjoys sunny and warm subtropical climate year-round with a summer temperature averaging 28° C and only a couple of degrees less in the winter months. A breezy trade wind helps to keep things temperate. June through November is considered the rainy season. The annual water temperature oscillates around 25° C.

Banks & Money
Since the island is shared by two countries you will find two different legal tenders. The French side has adopted the Euro where as the Dutch side uses the Netherlands Antilles Florin (also know as the Guilder). Although prices are listed with the national currency, US dollars are accepted readily so you may not need to exchange your money at all.
Money can be exchanged in the many banks and change offices. Banks ATMs are available throughout the more populated areas of the island. All major credit cards are accepted on both sides of the island
