Getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life is easy when you use Orbitz.com to book travel from New York to St. Martin/St. Maarten. St. Maarten offers beautiful beaches, a relaxed and romantic atmosphere, and an exciting nightlife that affords just the break you need from everyday life in New York City.
More than 8 million people call New York City home, and the city has worked hard to make travel both within and outside of the city as simple as possible. The city is served by three major airports, John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia in Queens and nearby Newark Liberty International in Newark, New Jersey.
LaGuardia Airport does not offer direct international flights. However, the airport is served by nearly 20 airlines, including Delta and United, making it easy for passengers to catch a connecting flight to another airport. Should you choose to fly from LaGuardia, you can reach the airport by city bus, taxi, or private car, or you can drive yourself. The airport offers parking for short-term and long-term stays, and dining options are available from chains like McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts, and Au Bon Pain.
For direct flights from New York to St. Martin/St. Maarten, you will depart from either JFK or Newark. jetBlue operates nonstop flights from JFK to St. Maarten, and United offers flights from Newark. AirTrain service connects public transit passengers to either JFK or Newark for a low cost. JFK is also accessible by New York City subway and bus service. While parking is available at both airports for stays of any length, many passengers prefer to save the expense and travel to the airport by either yellow cab or private car. Most taxi services offer flat-rate fares from any point within the metropolitan area to the airports. JFK and Newark are both large international airports, and each has a wide range of dining options available within the terminals to grab a meal before your flight.
Just 37 square miles in area, St. Maarten is a small coastal community located in the Caribbean. With numerous beaches, a colorful local history, an abundance of options for outdoor activities on land or sea, and a thriving nightlife scene, St. Maarten offers a one-of-a-kind vacation experience to any traveler.
You will arrive by plane at Princess Juliana International Airport, a small but busy international airport. Rental cars are available from local and international vendors, including Hertz and Avis. You may choose instead to take a taxi from the airport to your destination. Cabs are available outside the terminal, and fares can range from $7 to $40, depending on your destination.
St. Maarten enjoys temperate weather throughout the year. Temperatures generally range from around 66 degrees to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The summer months are marginally warmer, and rainfall is more frequent. Winters tend to be drier. In general, rain stops quickly and most days are sunny. However, hurricane activity is not uncommon between the months of June and November, although severe storms are very rare in the region. June and July may be among the best months to visit, as temperatures remain mild, the threat of hurricanes is relatively low, and sales are often available on hotel rates and activity prices.
Scuba diving, boating, and windsurfing are among the many activities you can enjoy outdoors during your stay. The waters surrounding the island are teeming with coral reefs, exotic fish, and other eye-catching marine life, making this a spectacular destination for those who enjoy snorkeling or diving. Beachgoers will find St. Maarten's many beaches offer a variety of different atmospheres, from the tranquil waters of Simpson Bay Beach to the craggy rocks at Maho beach. If you prefer to remain on land, you can tour the island by bike, stopping at St. Maarten Park to view local wildlife and plants up close. Once the sun goes down, dance the night away at a Miami-inspired nightclub like Sanctuary, which boasts one of the largest dance floors in town, or press your luck at a local casino.
With direct flights from New York to St. Martin/St. Maarten clocking in at only 4 hours, taking a break from the big city couldn't be simpler. Use Orbitz.com to book your travel and begin enjoying the best the Caribbean has to offer.
