St. Marteen offers the joys of two different cultures on the same island. Like some of the islands located in the Caribbean St. Marteen is split into two distinct areas, one controlled by France, and the other controlled by the Netherlands. This means that it is quite possible to experience both Dutch and French culture without ever having to travel to Europe. Each side of the island provides its own unique activities, so it is best to do research before leaving. Hurricane Irma did disproportionately affect the Dutch side of the island; however, repairs have been undertaken and this is no reason to prefer one side of the island to the other.
