Guess Where I'm Headed Next....

My flight is booked and I'm officially headed to ST. MAARTEN this March!!!!!! As mentioned before my cousin plans a giant group vacation every year with friends, last year we went to Costa Rica and this year the group decided that we wanted to see blue waters. I know it's still 6 months away but I'm really looking forward to being reunited with friends in paradise. I've actually never been to the Caribbean and I've always dreamed of seeing crystal blue waters so St. Maarten seemed like the perfect opportunity. St. Maarten is a rare island that is split into two distinct sections, one half of the island is Dutch and the other half is French. It's night life is supposed to be fantastic since it's home to hundreds of restaurants, bars and casinos and the offer plenty of amazing day-time activities as well including private yachts, snorkeling, and surfing. 

The House!
So far there are 26 of us on this trip and we will all be renting out this amazing Dawn Beach Villa that is literally a tropical beach paradise! The villa is 3 stories tall with multiple pools (one for each floor of the house) that overlook the ocean. It's a hop, skip and a jump away from the water where we have access to kayaks and canoes. Heaven really is a place on earth!

Check out the view from our pool area!!

So far I booked my flight and put the down-payment on the house but I'm really looking forward to booking excursions too. I went snorkeling in Costa Rica but I would really love to do it again in the Caribbean as well. Plus I really want to try something new... maybe paddle boarding or (attempting) to surf!

**Also how crazy is this photo! It's not photoshopped, the island of St. Maarten is actually so small that the planes land mere feet from beach-goers on one section of the island! This photo makes me pretty nervous but at the same time, I kind of want to experience this!**

Have any of you been to St. Maarten, I would love to hear your suggestions on things to do while we're there!
