Have you heard of Maho Beach in St. Maarten? Even if you haven’t, you’ve definitely seen it in pictures! Maho beach is a must-see for any aviation enthusiast, as you can watch large and small aircraft land just yards above you, and it’s been at the top of my bucket list forever!
I was thrilled when I saw a post from fellow blogger, Rene’s Points, detailing an organized meet up in January. Not only is it easy to convince me to escape somewhere warm in the heart of NYC winter, but there’s nothing more that I look forward to than mingling with others who “get” the obsession with this hobby.
With that being said, I cordially invite you to join us for a weekend of avgeek fun in the sun on Maho Beach in SXM during the weekend of January 6-9, 2016.
While the actual weekend dates are January 7 & 8, you’re welcome to arrive a day earlier and stay a day later to take in as much of the warm weather as possible. (that’s what I’m doing)
Believe it or not, flights don’t cost an arm or a leg – I just booked my arriving flight yesterday for 8,600 JetBlue points (and I’ll even get 10% of those back with The JetBlue Plus Card).
There’s also award space available for 10,000 Avios + taxes and fees for the nonstop American Airlines flights between JFK-SXM as another option. If you’re a Delta flyer, Rene would be happy to help piece together a custom mileage run too!
Group Hotel Info
The host hotel will be the Alegria Hotel St. Maarten, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member right at the end of Maho Beach. We have a great discounted group rate available (note: I cannot publish the rate here because it is lower than the public rate, but you can Contact Karen Hana General Manager Alegria Operations N.V.
