We believe our destination has much to offer to Canadian travelers, with our diverse set of accommodations, experiences, and friendly people.

We hope to tap into this opportunity and increase our market presence with the assistance of VOX international and our trade partners” ´said May-Ling Chun, Director of Tourism of St. Maarten.
