We're a family, 2 adults and 1 child (7 years old). We're planning a trip to Miami, Cuba and Jamaica, but we need a few tips on where to look for airline tickets.
We're arriving in Miami, then we're staying there for 3-4 days, then we plan to fly to Cuba, spend around 2 weeks there, and then go on to Jamaica for another 1,5-2 weeks, before getting back to our flight home from Miami.

Does anyone have any tips on where to check for nice prices on flights?

As far as I know, you can't fly to Cuba from anywhere in the U.S. since the embargo back in the 60s. Maybe there's some super-secret trick to it, but I don't think so. You may want to consider Miami-Jamaica-Cuba instead.

Good luck and enjoy!

yes,Tway is right,no flights from Miami to Cuba
you may check Air Jamaica,the have flights from Kingston to Havana or Montago Bay-Kingston-Havana.

Ok, thanks! I'll check Air Jamaica :)

What's your opinion on which country to spend most time in, Cuba or Jamaica?

I thought I could help on this one. Try this: From Miami take a Spirit Airlines plane to Cancun, From there take a plane (cubana airlines) to Havana. From Havana you can take a Cubana Airlines plane to Kingston. And the a Spirit Airlines plane back to Miami...

You can do mia / jamaica by AA, That is really one of the best fares

also air jamaica MIA/KG or any of the destinations in jamaica

but then from ja to havana, you do air jamaica again but consider this flight is only made on MON and thursday at 10 am. so that you spend at least 1 to 3 nights in HAVANA.

that is the trick, then from Jamaica you can fly from jamaica to MIA again by AA.

I would definitely spend most of my time in JA, and those 3 days in HAVANA, but it all depends on what you want to do. For both have plenty to offer. but on different basis.

all the best!!

happy holidays
