  • Take a Water Taxi

    Sint Maarten Transportation

    The easiest way to get to Philipsburg from the Cruise Port was to take a water taxi. There are plenty of taxis available and the cost is low at $7 per person for unlimited trips for the day. Once you purchase your fare they put a colored bracelet on your wrist to identify you have paid the fare. The water taxis are in good condition with plenty of...

  • Shopping on the Dutch side

    Sint Maarten Shopping

    Both times I've been to St. Maarten, we've docked on the Dutch side. The shopping area is within walking distance of the port area, there you will find the usual assortment of jewelry stores, souvenir shops and bars. The cruise ship will happily give you a guide to the shopping opportunities here, me, I'm not much of a shopper so the only thing we...

  • Queen Emma Bridge

    Curaçao Things to Do

    The main tourist stand at the Emma Bridge (Punda side) connected me with Peter Trips. He is a sturdy Dutchman, nearly 30 years on Curacao, and offers several day and half day excursions. I took the "Island Trip" which gave me a very good overview of key areas of the island, in, around and out of Willemstad. There were many Dutch people on this tour...

  • Bonaire National Marine Park

    Bonaire Things to Do

    A great dive to do after Karpata. Hit Karpata early in the morning, you have to take a dirt road to get back on the two way road and this detour spits you out right at Oil Slick. They have a nice wooden dock with a ladder for easy access out of the water. This is a great spot to kill some time in between dives. Oil Slick get deep immediately so...

    This was a small cute covered open-air restaurant up some stairs.2014 update-- Norca's was gone!!! :( I think--we sure heard lots of different things from the nearby shops (nobody seemed to know where she went but I think this woman is fairly well-known on the local food scene so I'm betting she is still somewhere in Bonaire). BUT--we went upstairs...

  • That Yoda Guy Museum

    Philipsburg Things to Do

    I thought of this primarily as a store, but really it is a museum. The museum was given an award as one of the top three museums in the area. I found out about it on the Disney cruise which I guess is partly because Disney now owns Star Wars.In TODAY the Newspaper for Country St. Martin Nick is quoted:“We are really very proud that our tiny exhibit...

I normally buy things that are made locally. Here this would include Rum Jumbie Liquor, or CD's...

    Saba Restaurants

    This place is a small, local bar that serves meals three days a week. Cool surroundings with good stories being tossed about by the locals and all the divers that frequent the place. We went on Sunday (Steak Night!!!!) and the steak was awesome! I've been to some of the (supposedly) better steak houses in the US and more often than not prefer my...

    Sint Eustatius Off The Beaten Path

    There are several very pretty birds on Statia.A local practise is to put out cane sugar in little cups for them to feed on. The locals call them sugar birds.Statia is the only place that I have ever seen a hummingbird sitting on her nest.

  • Everything is hard to find

    Sint Eustatius What to Pack

    Bring everything that you will need but keep it light. Statia is very casual so you won't need any fancy clothes. Do bring some water shoes because there is broken glass on the beach. If you want a special brand then you must bring it with you because you won't find much here and not any brand that you have ever heard of before. Be sure to take...
