St Maarten & St Martin: Two Nations, One Island

Saint Maarten on the Dutch Side and Sint Martin on the French side, is a small two nation island in the Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean.  The south half of the island is Dutch, the most populated nation on the island, and the north half is French.

Tourism is the main business of the island, with over a millions tourist flocking to the sunny beaches, nightlife, and true duty free shopping that the island offers.

I’m trying to figure out a way to be one of those one millions tourists in the not too distant future.

Anyone visited recently?  Would love any information and feedback.
