DC. 2.5 hours to Miami and 4.5 hours to Port of Spain. Easy during normal times, but very difficult when the border was closed (18 months due to Covid-19). Currently, because the border just opened, the cost of flights back to Miami, JFK, or Orlando are about $700 roundtrip. - Aug 2021

It's about a 3+ hour flight from Trinidad and Tobago to Miami; multiple airlines make that route. It's five plus hours to just to Houston, and there are also flights to Fort Lauderdale and NYC. It can be expensive to fly out, but honestly it's even more expensive on the short flights within Caribbean (a real bummer). - Mar 2019
