The main airport, Princess Juliana International (SXM), is located on the Dutch side of the island and is served by several major airlines that fly from major U.S. mainland cities. Most visitors connect directly from one of the hub cities or fly in via San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The prevailing northeast trade winds keep the weather near-perfect, with temperatures ranging from 68º F to 81º F in coastal areas and 72º F to 86º F in inland areas. Don’t be surprised by an afternoon shower. But don’t worry; the rainstorms tend to pass quickly — allowing the sun to shine on most days. It’s important to remember to always use sun block against the intense Caribbean sun, even on cloudy days.
Upon arrival to St. Maarten, you must present a passport that is valid upon entry and for the duration of stay; if you have a passport from a visa required country you must have a valid visa sticker in said passport and passport must be valid for 3 months after intended stay.

Passports are required to visit the nearby islands of Anguilla, Saba and St. Barthelemy (St. Barths).
