Island Hopping

I already booked a round trip flight to Barbados for 14 days.

I would like to visit other islands while I'm there. I'm thinking Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, and Saint Lucia. Kind of create a little circuit.

Am I leaving any out?

Should I book the flights now or can I do it when I get there last minuet?

Please help

Depending on the order in which you visit the different islands, the time of year and day(s) of week you plan to travel you may find there could be a limited number of flights to any given island (sometimes not everyday) and some or all of the aircraft will be small with a limited number of seats (anything from 6 pasenger puddle jumpers to say 36 passenger commuter aircraft). You might also find that you can't always fly non-stop between certain islands so you'll have to do connecting flights. All of this means you'll probably be much better off pre-planning you flights rather than waiting for the last minute to make your travel plans.

I'm no expert but because you are trying to get to 5 islands in 14 days, I'd definitely make my plans from home in advance.

I tried to do this once from Aruba and it difficult and expensive. Not as easy as people think most options we had to fly back to a main hub and start over. I wish you better luck. If island hopping is really your dream I would island hop via a cruise.

I second Suze opinion, if you are trying to get around 5 islands, I would say you have to book in advance so that there is no "cuffuffle" when getting there.
