Nassau, Bahamas

Nassau, the capital of New Providence Island in the Bahamas, is a majestic, scenic adventure that you do not want to miss. New Providence island, Nassau has an attractive harbour, a colourful blend of old world and colonial architecture and a busy port. The tropical climate and natural beauty of the Bahamas has made Nassau a popular tourist destination, with a reputation for relaxing days and an exciting nightlife. Lynden Pindling International Airport, the major airport for the Bahamas, is located about 10 miles west of downtown Nassau, and has daily flights to major cities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean. Summertime temperatures rarely exceed 33 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit) and the winter months have daytime temperatures between 20 and 26C (68 and 80 F), rarely falling below 10C or 50F. The city's proximity to the United States (180 miles or 290 km east-southeast of Miami, Florida) has also contributed to its popularity as a vacation spot, especially after the banning of American travel to Cuba. The world famous Atlantis resort on nearby Paradise Island accounts for more tourist arrivals to the city than any other hotel property. The mega resort also employs over 6,000 Bahamians, the largest outside of government.

As you head toward your destination, you'll find plenty of spots to visit for a tasty bite - options like the taco-'n-burrito goodness of BlueIguana Cantina, the burgers-'n-fries combo of Guy's Burger Joint, plus all the rotating goodness of Lido Restaurant. (Our suggestion: bring an appetite and try them all!) Carnival Elation also features places to enjoy a drink, from the all-chill Gatsby's Bar to the friendly poolside rivals RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar... and don't forget everybody's friend, the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar.
