Tips for Traveling to the Bahamas

When To Go

Peak season in the Bahamas runs from mid-December to mid-April, due to minimal rain and low risk of hurricanes. However, that means high demand, so book early if you plan to go during that time. AAA Travel Agents can help you score the best vacation packages and travel deals before they sell out.

Helpful Information

  • English is the primary language.
  • Businesses in the Bahamas accept the American dollar, so there’s no need to exchange money.
  • Tipping is standard in restaurants, but a gratuity is sometimes included in the check, so be sure to verify before adding your own.
