Fastest Flights West Coast to Caribbean?

Have little kids and really don't want to do an overnight layover. Any direct flights (or flights that skip the overnight both ways) to T & C, Curacao, Aruba, Anguilla or Cayman Islands? Thanks!

Forget Anguilla - no non-stop or direct flights to that islands from anywhere in the US.

Where on the west cost are you flying from? You are probably going to find there are no non-stops or direct flights to any of the islands on your list from most west coasts cities so you are looking at connecting flights via DFW, IAH, MIA, CLT or ATL. And because of time zone difference (4 to 5 hours depending on time of year) best you can expect is to take red-eye from west coast to connect to mid-day flight to one of the islands on your list via one of the airports mentioned above (which one depends on the island you choose). Other option, as you already know, requires over-night stopover at one of the connecting airports.

Last time & from Seattle I did a red-eye thru Atlanta, with a morning flight to the Caribbean (Jamaica).

Any other flight options going by day took WAY longer and with more transfers.

Although this is an old post, the following may be helpful to others traveling from the west coast. Cayman Airways is going to have a non-stop flight from Denver to Grand Cayman 2 days per week for the winter season. It leaves at 12:15 PM,. Given the time it leaves, there should be no problems with overnight layovers even with connecting flights to Denver.
