Small Airlines of the Caribbean: Caribbean Island Hopping
Small Airlines of the Caribbean
For travelers visiting smaller and more remote islands of the Caribbean there is a good chance you will be flying in on one of the small airlines of the Caribbean. Inter-Island travel is relatively easy and for those looking for a Caribbean adventure try island hopping and create your own multi-island adventure. It's less expensive than you may think! Some short island hops are as little as $30 or so one way running up to $150 depending on the distance. Or, check out one of the Island Hopping programs offered by regional airlines. To plan your trip start by booking your international flights first. One example might be to fly into San Juan and book your return flight out of St. Lucia. Then hit the islands in-between.
