PRINCESS JULIANA AIRPORT
Let’s start at the airport. nothing much has changed here since June. You’re still gonna get off the plane directly and walk right up to the tarmac. You’re gonna get into a bus be taken to customs and then you’re going to check-in. It’s very fast very easy and should not be a concern to anyone. They are working so hard on the actual airport but honestly, I kind of enjoyed this experience of just walking into a temporary space getting through, and picking up my luggage and getting out it was super fast and it’s not a reason to stop you from going I’ll say that much so the airport is pretty much the same let’s move on. (UPDATE DEC 11, 2018 – Arrival area has re-opened!)
Next, we’re gonna stop over at Maho today. Seeing all the destruction in
downtown Maho is sad but seeing the construction going on in Maho is
exciting. So while this place has been hurting it’s up for something brand-new. I think they’re doing the right thing right now so while Maho is no longer the place that we all love and remember it is going in the right direction. I think they’re making all the right moves. While I was there the casino reopened so that was fantastic. Perfect timing, I got to see it right as it was opening. If you haven’t been there in a while and you went in you probably wouldn’t even know the difference. There are a few new restaurants and a few new bars in that area one place I spent a
lot of time at actually was The Hole in the Wall right in downtown Maho.
Being a New Yorker I kind of like hole in the wall type bars and this gives
you that feel. There’s a lot of great people. I went in there a few
times on my trip and I saw the same people so it allowed me to as someone
who travels alone to have sort of some camaraderie and the bartender there Matt took great care of me. Go in there say hi to Matt! Tell him Phil Phriday sent you.
I’m going to skip Mullet Bay and Porto Cupecoy because I went into
those in June they are good they are great. fantastic. go!
