Thanks for noticing Maiznblu....I loved SXM!
And yes it was cloudy. 5 seconds before I snapped the Corsair photo it started to pour rain....

I am dying to visit the area.. I wonder if it is possible for me to see SMX area by the beach from cruise port area? I plan to take a cruise "Princess" in Sept when the cruise arrives to St Marteens so I want to get off and walk or take a cab to SXM to see all planes flying in ? How far is it from cruise port to SMX? Let me know.. Thanks..

It's definitely to far to walk from the Cruise ship terminal to the Airport. You will definitely have to take a Taxi. I have no idea how much it would cost, but it should be fairly reasonable.

I was there in 2000 on a cruise. We went to Orient beach on the other side of the island. It's a nice island and you will enjoy yourself there.

It costs about US $25 for a taxi ride from the cruise ships to SXM... i just did it in december 2003... takes about 20 mins for the ride along the coast.

so worth it! I took princess cruises also, you will have a fun time! remember the best time to visit SXM is mid afternoon... say 1-4pm, that's when the big boys come in to play. also bring yourself an aviation reciever to listen to local tower!

I would walk for a once and a lifetime opportunity!
Tappan(if i may address you as thus) I love your pictures and especially this one, thanks for keeping the SXM dream alive for all. I'm sure a lot of people(especially me) would be intrigued by some tales from the princess (an afternoon of watching,etc) and forgive me if there is already a post about this, but I haven't found one. Any way to get some words from your experience?
I enjoyed your earlier post on runway extension @TNCM, lets hope its not for awhile.
Nice approach symbolizing paradise (perhaps what it looked like from captain's perspective on the approach in this topic's featured picture)
