There are a couple really good "world class humidors". One is in downtown Marigo. It is signed as an Davidoff humidor but they carry all brands and their cigars are in really good condition. There is also a ggod cigar store on the airport road just after leaving the airport headed towards Cole Bay, on the right. I am sorry that I can't remember either stores name but they have good cigars (Cubans) in very good condition.

J ai vecu trois ans en guadeloupe et je faisais de nombreuses visites á saint martin. En quête de cigares cubains, jai découvert, par hasard la petite boutique de Don G (Gustavio/Gustave en français), ce petit monsieur d un certain age travaille et fume dans sa petite échope, il présente quelques belles vitoles cubaines á des prix plus que raisonnables... Mais, marié á une cubaine, il produit quelques cigares dominicains de belle facture, étonnement puissants et généreux. IL LES PROPOSE EN LIASSES DE 25 unités coronas et torpedos pour une cetaine de dollars...ce sont de belles piéces un peu blondes mais sous la cape la tripe est assez virile pour satifaire les amateurs de puros raisonnablement maduros. De belles volutes substantielles que l on obtient sans avoir á tirer trop fort, des aromes discrets, certes mais suffisamment complexes. Bref une belle découverte de "cigares á fumer" comme on parle en France de "vins á boire", pour un plaisir sans ostentation. Gustavio dans sa petite boutique désordonnée est á l image de ses produits, acceuillant et simple, il offre volontiers á ses visiteurs un petit rhum cubain et de café de la même provenance qu il vante et vend avec son délicieux accent du sud de la France dont il est originaire...une rencontre finalement exotique au coeur des caraïbes !

Don't know if the prior post is spam or not, but this is how Google translates it:

J have lived three years in Guadeloupe and I made many visits á saint martin . In search of Cuban cigars, I discovered by chance the little shop of Don G ( Gustavio / Gustave French) , this little gentleman of a certain age works and smokes in his little échope , it has some beautiful Cuban cigars á prices more that reasonable ... But á married a Cuban , Dominican cigars he produced some beautifully crafted , powerful and generous surprise. HE MOVED IN THE SETS OF 25 coronas units and torpedoes for cetain dollars ... these are beautiful pieces a little blonde but under the cloak tripe is quite virile for satifaire lovers puros reasonably maduros . Substantial beautiful curls that are obtained without á pull too hard , discrete flavors, but certainly complex enough . In short a great discovery of " smoking cigars á " as they speak in France of " á drink wine " , for a fun and unpretentious. Gustavio in his little shop is messy á the image of its products, welcoming and simple, it offers visitors a happy á little Cuban rum and coffee from the same source that he praises and sells with her delightful accent of southern France which it originated ... finally a meeting in the heart of the exotic Caribbean !

The thread is about cigar and I think this French person just "pooped" in to give his knowledge about what can be find in Marigot. I know this little store and everything said by the poster is true about Don G.
Just an informative post

Kind Regards,
