My wife and I will be traveling through St Martin on Friday, July 6th at approx 5:00 PM we will land at the airport in Grand Case. We need to catch the 6:00 PM ferry to Anguilla(which is the last of the day) so we plan to get a taxi or arrange a ride to do that. Has anyone made this trip at approx 5:00 PM on a Friday? Should we be worried about traffic enough to schedule an earlier flight from St Barths, say 1:00 PM instead? Thank you for your help.

At that time of day the "rush-hour" traffic is leaving Marigot and heading towards Grand Case. There WILL be traffic each way however.

If there are no cows on the road, wrecks, etc it should be do-able in one hour...but it really is tight IMO.

As long as your plane is on time it will be close. Better to take an earlier flight and play it safe. No sense worrying and getting up tight on vacation.

I totally agree with you & Beachkitten. Leave earlier & avoid traffic stress on vacation. You never know when the cows will decide to stroll.

I agree with the others. Why subject yourself to unnecessary stress? Take an earlier plane.

Same here. One little hiccup and all bets are off.

Not only cows but also a broken down, stalled or slow truck trying to climb the hills.

That time of day cruise tour busses would be back to the cruise dock but all kinds of traffic slowdowns can occur anytime of the day.

Sometimes work trucks at that time of day with one lane closed. It will give them longer in St. Martin,
