I have been browsing the sight, and have some questions regarding my first trip to Virgin Gorda. My family of five is traveling in June, Saturday to Saturday.
Any Ferry is out of the question, as my wife and daughter both have issues there. We are flying into San Juan, most likely on USAir to Arrive at 1:30pm. It appears that Seabourne doesn't have a later flight, and Air Sunshine has a 2:30 and 5:00. They say we won't make the 2:30. Problem is we really don't want to wait until 5:00. That just seems like a late start to the day.
I've been looking at charters since there is 5 of us. Air America and Virgin Gorda Air Charters (Caribbean Charters, Inc.) have the best rate. Price of the charter on the way down and schedule on the way back is not really that significant different.
What do you experienced travelers recommend? 1. Wait on the 5:00 Air Sunshine 2. Take one of the Charters on the way down, and if so, any recs on the above two?? or 3. I've even contemplated trying to fly into San Juan late Friday night, then take an early schedule flight over to Virgin Gorda. Just not sure I want to throw in an extra travel day, even if it means arriving early. Also, never been to San Juan, so would need a rec on a hotel close to airport..
Thanks in advance for the info...
