Caribbean Settlement

Flight logistics in the Caribbean have been giving me headaches...tight inter-island connections, poor land transport between the Guianas and the ridiculously high flight cost between Cayenne (French Guiana) and Fort-de-France (Martinique). OK, I bit the bullet today. Booked a number of air tickets:

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Georgetown, Guyana - Caribbean Airlines - Zuji.com S$189
Cayenne, French Guiana - Fort-de-France, Martinique - Air Caraibes - airline's website - Euros 342 or S$714 !!!
Fort-de-France, Martinique - Point-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe - Air Guyane Antilles - Zuji.com S$144
Guadeloupe - Dominica - St Lucia - Barbados - St Vincent - Grenada - Trinidad - LIAT Airlines - airline's website - US$468 or S$711.

And I changed a number of hotel reservations already made, and emailed a few other hotels.

I would also defer the decision of whether to join a tour for the three Guianas till a later day. Continuing to get more info, and will commit only after I have gotten the Guyana visa in New Delhi in mid-November. Already taking a risk by buying the POS-GEO ticket.
