Trying to do my research for my 30th birthday. I plan to vacation for 6 days in either Aruba or St. Maarten, but having a difficult time figuring out which one I would like to go to. I'm thinking about splitting the St. Maarten trip up between St. Barts and St. Maarten. But then, I'm also liking what I'm researching about Aruba. Here are some of the things I'm interested in doing on vacation which may help in your suggestion:
1. Beach - beautiful, clear water, great weather
2. Water sports
I'm looking for something different and I've never been anywhere in the Caribbean. Which would you suggest between Aruba and St. Maarten. I really want to have a fun but relaxing time and experience different cultures. Also, I like to be in the middle of the action.
