We stop at the Guavaberry Company whenever we visit Sint Maarten. The guavaberry rum and the flavoured liqueurs are delicious, as well as the mixed drinks that you sample or purchase to consume there. We love their spices and hot sauces as well. They have...More

Don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. This is just a storefront selling Guavaberry stuff. Don't get me wrong, Guavaberry is great and I love Guavaberry Coladas which they were selling for $7, but I was expecting more than a storefront.

The rum and liquor flavors are really good. They also have a couple of pre-mixed cocktail punches that you can buy by the glass. We loved the drinks; the staff did not look very happy to be there, but they served us quickly and efficiently.

Hi Chiotilid, In US distances, I would say around one mile at most. In European distances, about 1600 meters. Enjoy the island. Bob Stratford, CT

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
