I'm sorry I can't help much with the Dom.Rep portion of your trip, however, I can say it's not going to be as easy as you think to get to the other destinations. You would need to go through San Juan to get to all three of them and that will not make your holiday cheap.. airlines would include American Airlines, LIAT, and Caribbean Sun/Star.

There are a number of inexpensive places to stay in Barbados .. take a look at and check out the accommodation pages.

I'm not very familiar with the other 2 locations either.

Sorry can't be more help

I lived on an island called Saba, very close to St maarten.
The Dominican Republic is very cheap. But like it was mentioned, to get to most islands you have to fly from San Juan. It is about 200 US from there to St Maarten. I would NOT reccomend staying anywhere but a hotel is any surrounding island. I found the Caribbean very expensive. On the other hand, St Maarten, St Barths, Anguilla, Saba are amazing places I would reccomend. However they are not cheap. Post again if you want more information. I know most things about these island and surrounding areas.
