Try out of Ft. Lauderdale....here's a link to what I just ran.

We were booked on a late Jan flight from Miami to Mo Bay with the connection to Bonaire. Since we were coming in from MSP, we were going to overnight in Miami and catch that morning flight. They cancelled the flight on us (did not notify us, just happened to go in and check after seeing a reference here. Check the Air Jamaica thread). They had rebooked us from FT Lauderdale to Kingston to Mo Bay, getting us in like 6 hours after the Bonaire flight left. After calling them (they spotted the problem immediately) they rebooked us on an AA flight, Miami to Mo Bay (#0881). This would have worked, but we decided to fly NW out of MSP direct to Mo Bay and overnight there. You might check out the AA flight as an alternative.

Gregg, this is for an upcoming trip the end of Jan returning Feb 5. We booked through Expedia. Wyndham Rose Hall ($260) and on the way back Rose Hall Castles ($142). A few bucks, but we would have to overnight in Miami otherwise, and that is expensive also and probably not as much fun.

In Expedia, pump in a single night date and the results will give you the prices and also specify if they are available and if they need a minimum stay.

Be careful flying American with connecting flights to Air Jamaica. If you don't book the entire flight through American or one travel agent, you may have weight limits imposed. American let us fly to Bonaire on Air Jamaica without a problem but wanted to charge us extra for exceeding 50 lbs per bag on the way back. They weighted exactly the same in both directions. Just depends on the gate agent you get. I actually tried to get American to explain this but they never successfully did.

You could always fly Miami-Cur with AA and from curacao to bonaire With Divi or Bonairexel.

Raymond, I ended up adding an extra day to my trip because of AJ cancelling the mia/mobay saturday flight. I found AA has flights on Saturdays from MIA-San Juan-Bon, BUT if you fly that route on a Friday, it may be much cheaper. It's almost like I get an extra day free in Bonaire since I would have had to pay for an overnight stay in Jamaica if i stuck with AJ.... less than a month 'till my trip now!
