Hi, from Canada. WE have been to St. Maarten, beautiful place I must add. I wont bore you with our venture plans to St.Maarten as I have researched and know what it takes to move there, residency status, directors Lic., etc, the information I cant find is pricing on items such as, a bar of soap, bottle of shampoo, a carton or bag of milk to name a few? We are taking a trip later this year, will find out then, but curiosity is bigger than me. Can anyone help with a few ideas of what toiletries/groceries cost. I realize their may be a few different brands of each like here, but a basic idea would satisfy me. Thanks a bunch. ie: a reg size bottle of shampoo(500ml) here would be from $1.69 - that would be 2.86594 Ant guilder or $1.59 US dollar. Do you consider the cost of living to be high in comparison to other Islands? What does an avergae person pay for health care? Thanks to anyone that can answer. Enjoy your sunshiny days!!
