Loterie Farm (St. Martin)#4 in Best Things To Do in St. Martin - St. Maarten
Visitors can hike, lounge in a pool cabana or even take a zip line through the treetops on the 135 acres of forest and farmland located near the foot of Pic du Paradis. The farm has made a nice recovery since Hurricane Irma, though recent visitors say that the vegetation is not as lush as it used to be. That said, visitors were impressed with the amenities, service and food and pleased with how fast the farm has resumed operations.
Adventurous types can still enjoy Loterie's zip line that soars through Loterie's forest, but the obstacle course for children, Ti-Tarzan, was destroyed during the hurricane. The popular Hidden Forest Café was also damaged during the hurricane, but lunch and snacks are served by the pool in the meantime.
Loterie Farm is open Tuesday through Sunday. Prices for activities vary; be sure to browse the farm's website for more information on fees and an update on the recovery efforts. The farm is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday; the pool opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. Most cruise ship groups arrive earlier in the day, so the farm recommends non-cruise ship travelers plan their visit after noon. You'll find Loterie Farm about 30 minutes from the cruise ship terminal. Prices vary by activity, but access to the hiking trails costs 5 euros (around $6) while the zip line costs 42 euros (about $50) per person.
