I came to your wonderful island last march(and January, but did that all in) and stayed at a few of your places. Loved it! great island, as safe as any other place I have visited, even more than trinidad, puerto Rico and others. people don't all seem to understand that margarita island is truly an island unto itself. its a paradise. the mainland nastiness is just that, mainland.
loved the great prices! where else can your dollar, properly used, go so far! loved your posadas, and meeting some of you even more...
now I want to back. I have made posts, contacted other members here, cant seem to find a reasonably priced way to book a flight there from here. air canada is about $1600 just to CCS, plus the connection, and flight to PMV. which I can only book once I arrive. and i have to spend alot of time waiting for my connection in CCS, not my favorite place, and thats if I can get a flight right away.
Flying using other airlines, with multiple connections in the US, such as Miami, to CCS are almost as expensive, plus the pain in the a** connections and wait times for the connections.
POS, a bit of a nicer spot to wait for a connection, also has direct flights every single night from YYZ Toronto for about $380 all in return. But I cant book a decent priced flight to PMV from there! It has to be from the island.
How about you offer your own 'all in'? even if its just from POS? POS is an easy and cheap flight for everyone, Europe, US and Canada. Just book the flight for your guests from Margarita. It can be done. then the costs aren't so outrageous, and it takes care of the aggravation of dealing with national airlines that we cant do so well.
If I have to pay $2000 and up per person, plus crazy transit times, it doesn't matter if everything on the island is free, its just too much to make it worth it. I just stayed in Turks&Caicos all costs in for a week for less. and that's supposed to be an expensive destination.
If you guys can get us decent priced flights from POS to the island, I would be happy to return. I just cant book them from this end. Believe me, I have tried. any takers?Edited: 1:23 pm, January 18, 2014
