    PLEASE HELP...need to get to Dominica!

    Advertisements



    To make a long story short, as a result of a flight delay I am now stuck in San Juan, PR missing my connecting flight to Dominica. Worst part, there are no flights from American Eagle (or even Liat) to Dominica for the next two weeks. Furthermore, if anyone knows of any other ways of getting to the island PLEASE let me know. I am pretty much desperate at this point and don't know what else to do. This is my first semester to the island so I am not familiar with all the options (if there are even any). Again I appreciate the help.

    Have your tried looking up flights for nearby islands (ie. barbados, martinique)? From what I have heard, you can always fly to one of the closer islands and take a water taxi back to Dominica (worst situation). (Shouldn't cost you more than $100 if you take the water taxi from martinique.)

    This was posted on the thread started by islandthrift titled: Anyone else having flight problems to Dominica from the 20th of Aug. It is at the bottom of page 2, there are multiple suggestions

    Good luck

    I know of several people who used this modality to get to dominica in a pinch.
    But when I start to feel that pull, turns out I just pulled myself-Weezer

    Hey everyone, I really appreciate the replies! I am happy (in a weird way) to say that I successfully made it to the island. A few people happened to miss their flight from San Juan to Dom so I was able to get through on standby. Again, thanks to those to replied and see you all soon at the rock (if your not already here).
