Getting there??? Help!

I am really interested in visiting St. Barth's but am shocked at how hard it seems to get there. I am starting in Oklahoma. We can get to Virgin Gorda before sunset but I am having no luck getting to St. Barth's in a day. Any secrets?

It is a challenge trying to get into SXM in time for flights out.

Try getting the first flight out of OK to Atlanta (Delta) or to Philadelphia or Charlotte (USAir), or Cleveland or Newark (continental). Sorry, I'm not that familiar with American schedules. Your other choice is to spend the night in one of these cities and start out in the AM, definitely cheaper than staying in SXM or SB, just chillier!

Spending the night in SXM is sometimes necessary, and there are some good moderate hotels near the airport. Mary Boon's is another property in SXM popular with the SBH over-night crowd that gets good, consistent reviews. I have stayed at the Maho Beach resort, literally a 3 minute drive from the airport, it's fun and there is a casino accross the street, which I like.

Good luck, Binti

Thanks Binti! I often forget the option of the overnight making things a little easier. I appreciate the help.

Fly into either SJU to SXM or Fly to SXM.

Last flight into SBH from SXM is 5:00. If you are cutting it close charter a flight at 5:30 from SXM on Saint Barths Commuter.

You can also charter a flight from SJU to SBH on Tradewinds Air.

The only other island that you can get to SBH from other than SXM is Anguilla.
