One of the best things about working remotely is the ability to be, well, remote. And while some people have full home office setups and need the stability of working in the same place every day, as a travel writer, all I really need is my laptop. So when I had the chance to travel to the Caribbean recently, I decided to add on a few extra days of scuba diving and working remotely on St. Maarten, to the east of the Virgin Islands. Given that my direct flight from the East Coast was only $250, and hotel rooms in St. Maarten’s off season start around $100 per night, it seemed like a great choice.
After looking at various hotel websites, I landed on a great pick: Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, a super-pretty hotel on a private cove near the city of Philipsburg. I’m glad I picked it for several reasons, but the number one reason I chose it will be obvious once you see the property: pools on pools on pools. I think between the pools and the ocean, I spent more time in the water than out of it.
