  1. Re: Best way to arrive given covid requirements?

    True. For us, coming from LAX, I booked our July 2022 trip on AA in Business/First for $1060.00 RT via SXM. Flying to SJU from LAX has similar fares for Business/First, however, Tradewinds is...
  2. Re: Best way to arrive given covid requirements?

    Customs in MIA with Global Entry took all of 10 minutes. Definitely worth the expense for five years.
  3. Re: Best way to arrive given covid requirements?

    If the budget will allow, unfortunately, the extra $ to fly Tradewinds from SJU was not in the budget for us.
  4. Re: Best way to arrive given covid requirements?

    When we traveled to St. Barth in July, we went through St. Maarten and transited with St. Barth Commuter. They met us at the gate after we de-boarded and directed us to a separate line that appeared...

    Re: SXM EHAS issues

    Leave those fields blank. When you enter your dates of arrival and departure, which will be the same if transiting on the same day, you will be presented with a question asking if you are...

    Re: SXM --> SBH - Bumpy Connection

    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't see this until just now. It was not a private flight, just a standard commercial booking on SBC. This seems to be part of their standard service, and was really...

    Re: SXM --> SBH - Bumpy Connection

    We used St Barth Commuter on our recent trip, they met us at the arrival door as soon as we arrived and directed us where we needed to go. We were through all necessary steps and in the terminal...

    Sunday Market in Gustavia?

    Hello to all,

    We are hoping to visit the Sunday market on July 11th, but don't have much information. I'm guessing it is on the "main street" in Gustavia, but what time does it usually begin, and...

    I book most of my car rental via Expedia, for domestic I rely on the credit card (amex) for international I purchase the Expedia offered insurance. I don't want to have to deal with a foreign...
  13. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    I'm glad to hear the vibe on the island seems to be that of live and let live. We like to dress to the occasion, but not to impress.

    I could pull of these red soles, but Louboutins not so much. ...
  14. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    I wouldn't see myself being comfortable in shorts and flip-flops as the higher end dining options.

    I'll be sure to pack a long sleeve shirt for sun protection on the hikes. I usually wear long...
  15. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    The one pair of pants will be the ones I also wear on the plane, not a fan of flying in shorts. I live in flip-flops so not having to wear shoes is a big plus.

    We're planning on Colombier and...
  16. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    Thank you for the breakfast suggestions.

    On a side note, is Marche U the best grocery store option on the island?
  17. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    I was wondering about acceptance of shorts for meals. I'm bringing a pair of light weight pants but having options is good. What about footwear, ie....sandals/flip-flops?
  18. Re: First visit to SBH for our 20th- er, 21st, anniversary this July

    I'll have to re-think coffee and pastries for breakfast, unless we are heading to the west end for the day and make it part of our morning.

    I was thinking more of the travel time added in...

    Iíve been reading as much as I can on this forum but thought I would finally say hello.

    Like many, we postponed our 2020 visit to 2021, and it appears we will be able to make our first visit to...
