Many travelers think about visiting the Bahamas every year with its famous luxury vacation clubs, but only a handful of these people actually push through. The Bahamas is a beautiful destination for your exotic vacations, and there is also that popular notion that this beauty comes with a price. The reality? False. Just like any other trip, there is an extravagant way to have your trips, and there are also thrifty ways to enjoy them. Let us take you through some ways to have a cost-efficient trip to the Bahamas:
Put more thought where to stay for your exotic vacation.
Read up on accommodations as much as you can, and if you have friends who have already gone to the Bahamas, there is great value in asking for their feedback as well. We know how tempting it is to book the next available room in Atlantis, but being one of the top luxury hotels in the area, this will surely hurt your budget. If you really want to experience the Atlantis, day passes are available. Getting one will get you a pass to the waterpark and/or aquarium. There are lots of lodging options to choose from, and one these is to book a place that will allow you to cook your food. This brings us to our next point:
Be careful of shelling out too much on food.
Finding a place that will let you cook will do two things for you: first, you get to immerse yourself to the Bahamian Cuisine—from buying the ingredients in the market (we suggest you try buying conch!) to actually cooking them and second, you also reduce your expenses on food to half. If you’re not much of a cook, cheap thrills can still be found all over the Bahamas. We suggest you try the chicken in a bag or conch fritters, both of which are available in Bahamian fast foods.
Think of what you want to do in advance.
First, you make two lists—one is a list of activities which you know will incur costs, the second one a list of activities which you know you have to pay for. Then list them according to priority, so you know easily which one you can forego. Or if you are unexpectedly running low on budget, you still get to enjoy your exotic vacation in the Bahamas because you already have you list of cost-free activities. Smart, right?
