The Bahamas

The type of vacation for those who love excitement as well as those seeking a little piece of heaven right here on earth.

George Washington’s statement that the Bahamas is the “Isles of Perpetual June” is on the money. This 700-island archipelago offers visitors diversity and choices not found in many other Caribbean islands. One of the few islands without rivers, Grand Bahaman Island, features Lucayan National Park, which houses the caves that served as the burial ground for its native people, the Lucayan Indians. New Providence Island, where the country's capital Nassau is located, is at the same time hotbed of excitement and a tranquil pool of serenity. Like so many of her sister islands’ capitals, Nassau is a beautiful mix of the old world and the modern age. Visitors seeking a token of their trip to the islands should make a stop at any of the straw markets, although the one in the capital is open every day, making access easy. The Bahamas holds many such distinctions – its system of limestone caves is one of the longest in the world; it has the third-largest barrier reef and some of the clearest waters in the world. Test this yourself by indulging in some snorkeling or glass-bottom boat rides.
