This will actually be my second trip to St. Martin, albeit a much longer trip. I first went to St. Martin back in 1998 when I was 14 years old. I went on a seven-day Carnival Cruise with my family in which we stopped in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and St. Martin.
We visited Marigot Market, Philipsburg, a butterfly farm, and took an island bus tour. We also ate at this tasty Indian restaurant in Philipsburg. My impression of St. Martin at the time was, where are all the trees? The tour guide said apparently some huge hurricane blew them all away a few years back. This time when I go, lets see if they have grown back! Here are some photos from my first trip to St. Martin!
