Looking to take a trip to either St Maarten or St Thomas & St John in August but not sure which way to go. I don't plan on spending much time in the hotel, just sleeping, otherwise I want to be out experiencing Caribbean life. I like both islands for the amount of activities they offer and how easy they are to get around. I've never been to the Caribbean and want to make the most of my trip. Any advice I can get from someone who has been to both areas would be great. Thanks!
