The title says it all really.

If so, could you tell me how you got there?

Was it via CDG, AMS, or via the USA, and who with, cost etc. Also, hotels - which would be recommended?

I'm trying to plan a trip there probably for next year now due to the costs involved, but any info would be much appreciated.

Apologies in advance if this has been covered before, but nothing came up after a search.

Cheers,

Paul.

P.S. Mark Garfinkel - Great shots chap, must have been a gas in SXM!!

Cheers Paul, it was more of a "oh look, thats lucky" rather than a mini mission just to get a apic of it!

#yeah i can just imagine how fun SXM is!!! Sipping a drink, tanning, shooting the big 744's 340's etc!!!

Heaven!

I personally cannot think of anything better.

All my favourite pastimes combined into 1!! Dring a nice cold beer, watching aircraft, and checking out the hunnies, absolute bliss!!

For a lot of SXM info on hotels and airfares go to the Jeff Berger SXM website:
http://www.jmbcommunications.com/sxm.html#Boards

You can glean a lot of SXM info from this site. Don't pass on the opportunity to visit SXM. I have been all over the Carib. and Hawaii and this is THE BEST vacation spot if you spot, drink beer, sunbathe nude or eat!

Have a great trip and I may see you at the SUNSET!

BIGDEN



Never met a 747 I didn't like!
