The island of Saint Martin is located on the eastern side of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Saint Martin belongs to Leeward Islands in the West Indies where the northeastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. In 1648, this small island was divided into two nations, France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. St. Martin is the north French part of the island with Marigot as its main capital. Collectively, the two territories are known as "St-Martin / St Maarten".
