We enjoy both the USVI's and the BVI's for vacation
. We have been to St. Maarten by boat and air. My wife and I have a boat in charter at Sopher's Hole and go down 2-3 times per year. Something we have started doing about food
is really good for several reasons. We fill a cooler with frozen meats, fish, chicken, a ham, bacon, shredded prepared pork and roast beef kind of things from a warehouse foods and check it as luggage. That saves time on island looking for those items, you have what you want, better quality usually for LESS money
. Its then easy to get a few things when you arrive and as you go along to add to the main courses.
But I still have to find a local fisherman to get us some bugs!
And it is true the saying to "take twice the money
and half the clothes".
Enjoy your trip
