The Bahamas islands, with white sand beaches and diverse marine life, have long been a favorite of beach vacationers from North America. But did you know that besides being blessed with perfect weather and turquoise water, it's also one of the most affordable places to soak in the sun? Let us fill you in on the best ways to find affordable Bahamas vacation packages, so you can make your island escape sooner rather than later.
The Bahamas is an archipelago with hundreds of islands and cays — how do you know which one to visit?
Nassau, the country's capital located on the island of New Providence, is a beach-lover's favorite. With many resorts to choose from, and many gorgeous beach stretches, it stands as one of the Bahamas' most affordable destinations. Plus, it's a short flight from major South Florida gateways like Miami or Fort Lauderdale, where you'll most likely connect if you're coming from other parts of the U.S. or from Canada.
Wait until winter is over
Penny-pinchers should cross December through April off their list — this is the most expensive time to visit the country and the time during which it will be hardest to find the cheapest vacation packages. Wait until summer or fall to take your trip, when the high season has ended, and you'll save hundreds with lower-priced hotels and flights.
Take the non-inclusive option
It should come as no shock that staying in all-inclusive resorts will drive up the total price of your Bahamas vacation package. Be sure to look at all of your options for accommodations, even some that don't include all meals, drinks and snacks. If you're able to find a studio apartment or suite, you can further save money by cooking some meals yourself.
Skip direct beach access
You might be shocked at how much cheaper it is to stay at hotels that are near — but not directly on — beaches. If you don't mind being a little further from the ocean, your options for affordable hotels will open up, further expanding the range of vacation package deals that will be available to you.
