Thanks to all who have written info on visiting SXM. Jumped off a cruise ship this week, grabbed a cab and with my arrivals schedule and other information provided by you all, I had one of the best days in a long time. From all the info and pictures, I felt like I had been there before which made the day more enjoyable. Holding onto the fence when the AA 767 took off (my sunglasses went flying across the road onto the beach), taking a picture of that great "or death sign", sitting at the bar beside the beach consuming beverages and watching landings, floating in the water on and on- The arrival of the AF 340 was anticipated by all and did not disappoint. I would have traded the rest of my cuise for several more days there. For those who question going there- it is worth every penny and actually I found the island to be fun and Maho to be a great beach--few cruise tourists.
thanks to all.
