Any ideas on what the postage would be for a regular letter to the island and the time frame it would take?

If I am reading the chart on USPS.com correctly, the postage is $1.15. Maybe someone else can tell you the timing.

Last time I mailed something (deposit check several years ago) it was about 80 cents so the $1.15 mentioned previously sounds probably close. Timing is slow at best as once it leaves the US it is out of the control of the USPS. 2 to 4 weeks would not be unusual. Best bet would be to send it with someone you know going and have them hand deliver it.

Or Fed EX/UPS.

And that would be REALLY expensive if just mailing a regular letter.

Yes. Costs would be around $80-$100. BUT it would get there

I mailed a letter back in late April to the French side. Took almost 8 weeks! Don’ recall the cost but I think it was just over a $1.
