    Shipping from AUC to SMU

    Advertisements



    I thought that going from St. Marten to Grand Cayman would be a quick, no big deal, puddle jumper. I was wrong!

    I did not spend a great deal of time researching this but.....

    1. Plane:
    Have to go to Miami first. Couldn't find a way to get from Puerto Rico to Cayman. So I thought I could take a puddle jumper from SXM to GCM for a couple hundred. Wrong, $600, SXM -> SJU -> Miami ->GCM one way.

    2. Shipping:

    Only a few airlines go to Cayman. Thought if I went American Airlines I could take extra luggage and pay the $100/bag. Wrong, not during the high season...embargo. Thought if I took American airlines I could use their frieght service. Wrong, only for businesses.

    Went to American, SafeCo and Intermar, they don't ship personal to Cayman. Tropical Shipping will ship pesonal to Cayman. It will take between 3-5 weeks via boat. Everything goes to Florida before it goes to Cayman.

    I was not charged by the weight but by the cubic foot. I shipped 4 rubber maid containers on 1 pallet for $210.

    Tropical Shipping



    I found the company to be very helpful with good customer service.

    Good luck to those joining me on Cayman. See you on the other side of the islands.

    As I checked in today I asked if I could take extra luggage. They said, "yes, but it's an extra $100/bag, they won't takes boxes, it must be a suitcase".
