So summer is officially over and you're already wishing for the warm weather to come back. Unfortunately you're going to have to wait until at least March for there to be more than a smattering of warm days. That is, of course, unless you're interested in taking a vacation to the Caribbean. There are plenty of islands there that are warm year round and just ripe for a vacation. But which one? There are almost too many to choose from. Which one will provide you with everything you'll want and need? Why, St. Martin of course.There are a lot of things you should keep in mind when picking a place to vacation, but after you've come up with your list of things that are important to you about a vacation location, check out this list of why you should enjoy your time off in St. Martin.BeachesNobody goes to the Caribbean without intending to visit the beaches, and St. Martin has a beach no matter what your tastes are. If you have the family with you, then enjoy the numerous beaches on the Dutch side of the island. Don't have the kids and want to enjoy something a bit more risqu? Thereis a nude beache on the French side of St. Martin at Orient Bay for those looking to truly relax and let go of their inhibitions while on vacation.Europe Without the Long FlightHey, we all want to visit Europe, but 8 to 10 hours of flying is no way to start your vacation. Instead, enjoy a much shorter flight to the Caribbean that will end with a much more relaxing vacation. St Martin is one of the few Caribbean destinations with non-stop flights from many US hubs. For those that live on the East Coast of the United States the Caribbean also offers the added bonus of being very close to the same time zone, helping to eliminate much of the jet lag associated with traveling overseas.Thanks to its combination of French and Dutch culture, St. Martin has a very European feel to it, with an excellent blend of both these cultures and the Caribbean in cuisine, atmosphere, and amenities. Sure, taking a trip to France would be great, but with St. Martin you can get a taste of France without having to travel for hours and still not necessarily have a beach nearby.Shop Till You DropWho has the time to fly to New York City or Paris to get all the newest fashions? For that matter, who has the money? St. Martin has been called a shopper's paradise, featuring all the fashions that you'd usually have to go to New York City or Paris for, and at up to 40% less than you'd pay elsewhere. No matter what you're looking for jewelry, the newest fashions, local styles, discounts on last years' designs St. Martin has become the fashion capital of the Caribbean.Amazing AmenitiesSure, there are hotels you can stay in on your Caribbean vacation, but why stay at the same place as hundreds of other people when you can have your selection of some of the most amazing Caribbean villas in the Caribbean? St. Martin villas are second to none, offering all the comforts and amenities of home, such as kitchens, living rooms, and privacy, but with a view that you'll never get to enjoy from the comfort of your actual home. St. Martin villas are the only way to stay when you're visiting this island paradise.Weather You Can Relate ToBelieve it or not, St. Martin is in the northern hemisphere. Because of this, St. Martin, and all of the Caribbean islands, experience seasons much like the United States does. They do in fact have the traditional 4 seasons in St. Martin that we have further north. Of course, it's warmer in December on St. Martin than it is in Maine, but it is also notably cooler in December on St. Martin than in June. Because of this, when planning a trip to stay in a St. Martin villa, think about what kind of weather you want to experience. The winter is a fantastic time with warm days and cool gentle nights. Obviously the winter time is the high season and costs more, so if you would like to enjoy the island and to get a deal May and November are great months to choose. All the year round, St Martin is cooled by the sea breezes that constantly blow, so if you must go during the summer vacation, you will find it fresher than mainland USA.Relax and EnjoyNo matter your reason for going to St. Martin, be it shopping, the culture, or just wanting to stay in a St. Martin villa, the only thing that you should be sure to do is to kick back, relax, and enjoy your vacation. With your family, with your significant other, or even by yourself, your Caribbean vacation should be all about taking the chance to unwind.
