    Hey fellow BDW... we are in the planning stages of our wedding, as we have picked a resort and reserved our date, but now onto planning the wonderful honeymoon. Our wedding is at the Iberostar Grand in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We would like to travel elsewhere for our honeymoon. Our top destination is Punta Cana or St Lucia... though when doing a basic search I could not find any flights out from Jamaica. Does anyone know if this is possible? Or would we have to travel back to the states first?

     

    I am a travel rookie, so would greatly appreciate the help!! Thanks

      Hello Sunshine!

       

      Well you've done well! You haven't found direct flights because there aren't any... There may be some sort of "island hopper" you can charter locally but that won't be cheap (if it's even possible) because it's a decent distance between these three places.

       

      The simplest option would be to fly from Montego Bay to Punta Cana (via Miami). American Airlines has regular scheduled flights from Montego Bay to Miami. These operate daily at 8:20 am, 11:40 am and 3:45pm. Once you are in Miami you will have lots of connection options to the other islands.

       

      Your most efficient connection to Punta Cana will be taking the 11:40am to Miami (arrives at 2:40pm), then connecting onto Punta Cana on AA 1737. This doesn't leave Miami until 7:10pm, arriving in Punta Cana at 9:30pm. Not the best connection in the world but there aren't a lot of options. Space is limited in mid June so don't sit on this too long.

       

      St. Lucia will be a double connection and pretty much take all day. You'd leave Montego Bay at 8:20am and wouldn't arrive in St. Lucia until 10pm. Very long day!

       

      Hope that helps!
