Two families (8peeps) will be visiting St. Martin/Maarten and staying at Grand Case Beach Club. Would love to resolve the following questions before we head out
1. Taxi's over rental cars - I've seen the taxi rates that were posted for the entire island - how safe and reliable are the taxis?
2. Anguilla - would love to fit in a day trip to Anguilla Shoals Bay Beach. Where do we catch the ferry to Anguilla from St. martin? How often do these ferrys go back and forth. How much do they cost? How long is the trip each way.
3. Cash over credit cards - we've heard that it is better to deal with cash as you get a 1:1 conversion for US$ to Euro. Is this true?
4. Looking at eating at Lolos as it sounds the most cost effective for quality - are these within walking distance from GCBC
I know I have a lot of questions here - but I know there are alot of seasoned and well heeled St. Martin experts out there. Please help.
