For a veritable melting pot of cultures, sail to the perennially beautiful St. Maarten. With over one hundred nationalities represented on the island and more than 80 languages spoken, St. Maarten is the smallest landmass in the world to be shared by two different nations–in this case, France and the Netherlands.
