They have a fantastic frozen drink made with their rum. It is very refreshing after a hot walk along Front Street

If you're vacationing in St. Maarten, or just in port for the day off a cruise ship, this is a must stop. Sample the amazing Guavaberry Colada, browse the gift shop, and make sure you grab a bottle or two of the tastiest liqueur in...More

We were attracted by the bright little "hut" building. When we stepped inside we were surrounded by many items from hot sauces to rum. The Colada was just what we needed to cool off. Great opportunity for a photo op.

Every time I visit the Friendly Island I always visit this store. The wild lime rum is incomparable to any other lime rums on the market. Not even Bacardi Lime can beat this local liquor. Try a sample before you commit to buying the shelf!

It's only about a 5 to 10 minute walk tops. You'll be at the end of the boardwalk near the marina, go up to front street turn left and you'll pass the passarhang guest house, Yoda Guy then guavaberry on the opposite side
