Getting around

If you plan to rent a car in St. Martin, be aware you will be driving on the left. The only islands in the Caribbean where you drive on the right are Aruba, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Martinique, and the Netherlands Antilles.

Taxi service is available on the island. Although metered rates vary, they are reasonable and are fixed by law. Bicycles and scooters are also available for rent at most popular tourist centers.

You can use your home driver’s license but you'll need to purchase a temporary St. Martin driver's license for $20. Remember, when you take to the road, British rules apply, so keep to the left. Pedestrians should remember to look right before crossing streets.
