Hailing from the smallest landmass In the world that is governed by TWO super powers (The Netherlands and France); St. Maarten/St.Martin is a 37 square mile paradise for travelers of all kinds, especially us " MUSIC HEADS"Now, I am from the Dutch side and love my local "limes" but every Friday you can catch me at the premiere dancing spot Lago Heights located on the French side. The infectious vibes, delicious food and beautiful people only offset a passionate night of dancing to the sweet sounds of primarily Zoukmusic. You can't predict your night, but two things you can be sure of is, a great time and one of the French man- dem to ask you to dance by starting with MonCherie.
