Subject: Re: Driving in the Caribbean
Helen, I have been to St. Maarten several times and rented a car each time. I have no qualms about driving there. The cars are small and drivers aren#t always the safest but it isn#t much different than many large cities.

I drove in the Virgin Islands (St. Thomas) many years ago and had a terrible time remembering to stay on the other side of the road but besides that I don#t remember any problems.

As far as two women traveling in St. Maarten I would say don#t spend anymore time than necessary in isolated locations and don#t leave anything of value in your parked car unless it is in a busy location. Have fun! Sandie in Florida
