Meals not included
Enjoy St Maarten's views and fresh air from an open-top double-decker bus on this adventure full of photo opportunities and local tastings.
Passing the Great Salt Pond, head through the countryside to Marigot, the French-side capital. Take photos in a truly European atmosphere on the waterfront, in the open-air markets, and among the quaint shops, boutiques, and sidewalk cafés.
Back on the double-decker bus, you'll see the new Causeway Swing Bridge and perhaps also some immense sailboats and mega-yachts on the lagoon.
One of the most famous beaches in the world, Maho Beach is best known for its plane spotting. This is where aviation enthusiasts and thrillseekers watch aircraft on final approach to Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM).
South of the Simpson Bay Lagoon, pause at a local Rum Distillery for a tasting of various flavors of rum and at Old Amsterdam Cheese for some local dairy treats.
