My husband and I are thinking of a Caribbean vacation next yr. If we go to St. Martin/St. Maarten next yr, which area do you suggest is a good place to stay? The "Things to Do" section for Oyster Pond has only 2 things listed, but I saw someone mention it's in the middle of French/Dutch areas. That interested me because I wanna see as much of the island as possible without getting too far from the place we'll be staying at. We're generally looking for a good beach, sun, a good balance between crowd and quiet, and some shopping/nightlife. I'm a little confused about the two sides. Could anyone provide more info on the different crowds, attraction, etc of both? Thanks a lot!
I'm planning for Cuba in Oct 2011 with my mom & brother. Hopefully both of these trips will work out. I've dying for the Caribbeans lately!!!
