St. Maarten is a French and Dutch island in the eastern Caribbean that was hit by a major hurricane in 2017. Has the island recovered? Is St. Maarten safe for visitors, and has life on the island returned to normal? We explore old Dutch St. Maarten and answer these questions and more from our recent visit.
In September of 2017, powerful hurricane Irma struck both the island of St. Maarten / Sint Maarten as well as our home in Florida. A few months after, we visited the island for the first time and decided to visit again with a donation of school supplies. Follow our journey to the Oranje School with over 200lbs of supplies.
