Aruba vs. St. Maarten for kiting/family vacation?

Postby POACHER » Mon Apr 22, 2013 3:26 pm

My inlaws are very generously taking my wife and I on a vacation next March. They are deliberating between Aruba and St. Maarten.

Anyone been to either, or preferrably both? The kiteboarding is a priority!
Any info appreciated!

Been to both and recommend going to St Maarten as I think it has a bit more to offer. And the island is bigger too and more diverse than Aruba. Kiting is good in both spots, but I also prefer St. Maarten over Aruba for that although you can't go wrong in either place.

And scuba diving would be better in Aruba, but still good in St Maarten too

Enjoy

Ok cool! Thanks for your input.

I was kind of under the impression that Aruba was the better kitespot. I was hoping to get feedback from someone that's kited both.

Thank you!
