St. Martin Travel Guide

Best time to visit St. Martin

The most popular months to visit St. Martin are between December and April- even though it's chilly in most places of the world, it's warm and comfortable in St. Martin. The only downside of visiting St. Martin during these months is that the prices will be extremely high, you'll need to book your flight and reservations months in advance, and there will be a lot of crowds.

Between May and June is an excellent time to visit St. Martin. You'll get around 50% off on hotels and the weather is still very warm. Going in to June is the beginning of hurricane season but you'll only experience infrequent rain that rarely turns in to a storm.

Between July and October is during hurricane season and you should expect rain and occasional storms. But it's not unbearable and many hotels and restaurants will remain open with extremely reduced prices during these months. 

Between November and early-December is a fantastic time to visit St. Martin. This is when the hurricane season is over and the rain has stop. The weather is extremely pleasant and you're likely to find a good hotel and flight deal during these months.
Saint Martin, Saint-Martin, and Sint Maarten

Saint Martin is what the Caribbean island is called as a whole.

Saint-Martin refers to the French side of the island in the north half. It's known for its nude beaches and french cuisine.

Sint Maarten refers to the Dutch side of the island in the southern half. This part of the island is generally considered more "Caribbean," more diverse, and is quite a bit more industrious. The main airport, cruise port, and many more buildings are on this side of the island.
