St. Maarten/St. Martin Transportation



Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) is an international airport that serves the island of St. Maarten/St. Martin, so you will most likely arrive at Princess Juliana Airport. The French side of the island has its own airport at Grand Case, but it only accommodates small propeller planes and is rarely used for international travel. 


Immigration & Customs


Upon arrival at Princess Juliana International Airport all passengers must present a complete immigration form. These forms are generally handed out in the plane before landing. It is essential that you know the precise address of your accommodation on the island before you arrive.  You must have a valid passport and a return or continuing ticket.


St. Maarten/St. Martin is a duty-free port and there are no particular customs procedures. Products for personal use (tobacco, cameras and video cameras, etc.) are permitted in small quantities without being subject to specific procedures or taxes. 


Getting to Your Hotel has partnered with Nexus Tours as our premier transportation company in St. Maarten/St. Martin. They’ll provide you with safe, comfortable and professional transportation, from the airport to your hotel and back.  


After you clear customs and exit the terminal building at the airport. Look for the Nexus Representative holding an Amstar/Cheap sign.  The representative will then escort you to their van for your transfer to the hotel.


Getting Around St. Martin


Making transport arrangements with our tour operator is the safest bet. You may rent a car, but the roads are narrow and parking tends to be difficult. Taxis are available as well, but they can be expensive since prices are set by the government and determined by how far you travel. Local buses are a budget option; however, there is no set bus schedule, and buses must be flagged down for service.
