Your St. Martin/St. Maarten vacation

Divided between the Dutch and French since 1648 and the tiniest land shared by two nations, St. Martin/St. Maarten is anything but. A mixture of European flavors, this compact Caribbean jewel offers wildly unique treasures, all within easy reach.

Hit famed casinos and shops in the Dutch St. Marteen, a popular port of call for cruise ships. For French charm and sophistication, plus the Heineken Regatta, step over to St. Martin and Grand Case -- a French culinary haven. Over 40 beaches paint the island with cerulean blue water, but the pristine (and sometimes nude) beaches of St. Martin are a favorite.

Not sure whether to go Dutch, French or both? Orbitz insiders can help you make the call with our top 10 highlights, best times to visit and insider gems.

Best time to take a trip to Sint Maarten

Planning your St. Martin/St. Maarten vacation can be relatively easy since the island is blessed with nearly perfect, year-round temperatures, with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 70s.

For lower room rates, fewer crowds and slightly warmer temperatures, visit St. Martin/St. Maarten from July through August, and during the month of October. Hurricane season spans from June through November, and many establishments close during September.

The most popular time to vacation in St. Martin/St. Maarten is December to May, with hurricane season out of the picture and celebrated events like the Heineken Regatta (March) and Carnival (April-May). Rooms and restaurants fill quickly during these months, so book your trip early.

We spent 12 days here and loved it. Lots of amenities. The only downside was that there seemed to be quite a few older people staying at the resort that got irritated with the kids in the pool. If you are looking for an adults only resort, go somewhere else as this is very family friendly.
