Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Saint Barthelemy
Also known as St. Bart’s, Saint Barthelemy holds up to its reputation as a playground for the rich and famous. With sprawling, soft, white sand beaches, glistening turquoise waters, luxury resorts, megayachts and world-class dining, the French overseas collectivity does opulence and exclusivity extremely well. The Caribbean island was first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and named after his brother Bartolomeo. The French settled in 1648, but then sold it to Sweden. In 1877, France re-purchased the island and, for years, it remained a part of Guadeloupe. Saint Barthelemy finally became its own overseas territory in 2003. And, despite a long time of Swedish rule, the island is quintessential French in language, culture and cuisine – some of which is the best in the Caribbean. Although the islands’ isolation and high cost of living prevents mass tourism, its economy is heavily dependent on high-end tourism and duty-free luxury commerce. The island also imports all of its food, energy resources and manufactured goods. However, with a constant influx of goods and travellers, there are well-established courier services to Saint Barthelemy.
