St Maarten has been on our bucket list for as long as I can remember. And St Maarten with kids in tow was not going to stop us. We were scheduled to travel to this Caribbean island oasis in Christmas 2017. However unfortunately, Hurricane Irma had other ideas in mind and due to the island being completely devastated we had to postpone our trip.

This small island is actually split into 2 countries, France and Netherlands, and we spent our time on the Dutch side. Keep reading to learn all about our idyllic family holiday in the Caribbean.
