Getting There

The best way to get there is to fly to St. Maarten (St Martin), a neighboring French/Dutch Island (SXM). We recommend booking on American Airlines, which has the most frequent flights and usually the best rates. You can try www.aa.com or www.orbitz.com for flights to St. Maarten. Flights vary from $400 to over $600. At this time, flights are very high we suggest waiting a few weeks until the rates go down. Alex and I are monitoring the flights on orbitz and will notify you when we see the rates decrease. You can also try using frequent flyer miles which most airlines will honor during the summer months

Other airlines that also fly into St. Maarten are USAIR, Delta, Continental, and United Airlines.

Air France, Corsair, Alitalia, and KLM have regular flights to St Maarten from Europe.

You can also check into flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico. There are often connecting flights from San Juan to St. Maarten which might be a better value.

It's best to book an earlier flight to St Maarteen, then you are ready to book the next leg of your trip either by plane or by ferry boat.

From St. Maarten, WINAIR, Air Cara•bes, and St-Barth Commuter, make the 10 minute shuttle flight to St. Barth (SBH). Alex and I have secured a group rate of $138 dollars for Winnair.

If a connecting flight is not the way you want to go we suggest the Rapid Explorer which is a high speed ferry boat. It costs around $89 euros round trip per person. You will need to take a taxi from St. Maarten airport to Philipsburg Ferry Station to get to the Rapid Explorer Ferry. The taxi ride will take up to 40 minutes due to the heavy traffic in St. Maarten. The Rapid Explorer Ferry leaves everyday at 5:00.

The Rapid Explorer - Telephone 011 590 590 27 60 33

Air Cara•bes also has several flights a week between San Juan and St. Barths via St. Maarten.

St. Barth Commuter
Telephone is 011 590 590 27 54 58 or www.stbarthcommuter.com

When you arrive in St. Maarten you will go through customs. Don't forget your passport. If you are a US citizen you do not need a visa. If you are not a US citizen check with the French Consulate you will probably need a visa. You are just passing through St. Maarten going to St. Barths you are "in transit". When you have passed customs you will collect your luggage at the baggage claim. You will then exit the building. On the right there is the taxi stand. If you are taking the Ferry this is where you will catch your taxi. However, if you are connecting to the commuter plane continue straight into the adjoining building where the commuter check-in is located.

St. Jean Airport
Directions from St. Jean Airport:
The airport is near St. Jean, so are 3 hotels on the list, beach, restaurants and shopping (at the top middle of map). Your hotel provides free shuttle service to and from the airport - don't forget to let them know when you make your reservation. If you are renting a car, the agencies are on premise and very easy to locate. They will provide you with a map and directions to your hotel. St.Barths is basically round so it's not easy to get lost.

Le Sereno Hotel is located at Grandd Cul de Sac (see map below)

The ferry arrives at GUSTAVIA the main port and main town with lots of shopping, anchored yachts and great restaurants. That's where the rehearsal dinner will be. (lower left on map above, detailed map below)
