My wife and I have been seriously looking at taking a trip to St. Martin in August of this year and staying in Grand Case. One of the top places on our list is GCBC. It seems just recently that I have been seeing more articles on the escalation of crime in St. Martin and especially in Grand Case. We know that there is no place in the world that is safe and you always need to be aware of your surroundings, but we don't want to have to be nervous 24/7 that we may be robbed/attacked, etc. Has the town of GC increased their security lately and/or made any changes to improve their tourist safety ? We have really had our hearts set on Grand Case but are starting to have second thoughts. Any current updates/advice are much appreciated ! If it's not safe, do any of you have any other suggestions on safer places to stay on the island OR even another caribbean Island that is beautiful and safer ? Thanks !
