Flight arrangements to Dominica from Canada and I get the feeling from the States as well for same day travel is difficult. It takes me many searches before booking and has proven for me and I have read for others, at times, to be unreliable. However, if you love vacationing in Dominica, as I do, it is a small price to pay for a very special destination.I am hoping to return this winter and so far have found a route from Canada/San Juan/Dominica and return from Dominica/Antigua/Canada but it is to early to book yet!! I have been considering the option of a overnight stay on another Island, for ease and peace of mind, but truly do not want to do this as Dominica is my choice for valuable vacation time.
