What I thought would happen didn't. I expected higher prices, the opposite has happened. Chairs & umbrella at club o are $18 not $20 (We gave him $20 anyway). Also at shipwreck store calendars are usually $7.95 u.s. instead they charged $5.95 & at market the spices & vanilla came to $25 he said just give $20.
Nice.

But what about flights and hotels. That is where I am seeing the increases. 2 bucks on chairs is great but 500 increase on a flight is a no go unless beer and wine is free๐Ÿ˜€

Correct and also the lack of air and lack of places to stay has helped drive those prices up. Chair prices are often negotiable as is most items at the market.

We were fortunate to pay $1885 Canadian return for 2 from Toronto to Sxm thru Atlanta. & our accommodation at monreve is $600/week u.s. incl his rental car & he is also taxi driver will pick u up at airport for $30 fare & rental car stays here. No fuss no muss. Ideal for us & he speaks perfect English. Perfect for us anyway.
