It just wouldn’t be right to leave St. Martin/St. Maarten without guavaberry rum in your luggage. This liqueur, made with ripe hand-picked guavaberries and cane sugar, is a well-known product of the island. It is made right in Philipsburg at the famous Guavaberry Emporium, along with other flavored liqueurs and hot sauces. If alcohol isn’t your thing, head to the island’s French capital of Marigot where you’ll find the chicest French fashions this side of the Atlantic. Charming old Creole houses are home to designer boutiques, from locally owned shops to big names such as Longchamp and Hugo Boss.
