When I first wandered on the streets of Old San Juan Puerto Rico, I visited the famous sites in the city and that walking tour definitely made me hungry.

As soon as I set foot on San Juan Puerto Rico's pier, I saw a rush of tourists who were already on their way to different destinations. There were sidewalk vendors that sell all kinds of stuff from souvenirs, food and drinks and what not.

One of the most sought after island by holiday seekers is St. Maarten (Sint Martin). It is the only island country in the world that is governed by two nations, the Netherlands and France, with Philipsburg (Dutch side – more popular for shopping and night life) and Marigot (French side – best known for gourmet food) as its capital cities.
