Due to the vast size of the US, flight times from different cities vary widely. Flights to St. Maarten from the east coast are typically a shorter journey, even with a transfer. Direct flights from New York (JFK) to St. Maarten’s Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) typically take just under 4h; however, with a layover, the total travel time will be closer to 7h and 30min. Even closer options, including Miami, offer direct flights in under 3h, but a layover can increase that time to seven or 8h. When moving further west across the country, the total travel time will increase. Flights from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) include one transfer and can range from 7h on the short end to up to 18h on the long end. Typically, only one transfer is required when traveling from Dallas. From the west coast, travel times increase further. Flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) typically include one transfer and range from 10 to 12h on average.
Nonstop flights to St. Maarten are available from several east coast US cities. New York, from both JFK and Newark International Airport (EWR), offers regular direct flights to St Maarten that take about 4h. Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) also offers direct flights to St Maarten that typically take just under 4h. Florida has direct flights to St Maarten from both Miami and Ft.

The best way to travel around St. Maarten is in a rental car. There are several international and local rental car companies located at the airport, and daily rates are typically very affordable. Despite having two different countries on the same island, it is easy to drive across St. Maarten because there is no physical border. From Philipsburg St Maarten, it is only a 25min drive to Marigot St. Martin. Just prepare for congestion and traffic around the popular tourist attractions. Another great way to travel around the island is by taxi, although this will be more expensive. Taxis are unmetered, but they are required to carry government-issued rate sheets, so make sure to agree on a fare before leaving for your destination. Public buses are also available from early morning to midnight; although they are very affordable, they often take longer and don’t run on a set schedule. The most popular route run by the minibuses is from Philipsburg to Marigot.
