  • Fodor’s is the #1 selling guide to the Bahamas on Amazon, aside from a spiral-bound sailing guide to the Abacos. We dedicate a full guide to the region while Lonely Planet only covers the Bahamas in their Caribbean guide. The only direct competitor is Moon's guide to the Bahamas.
  • Editor’s Choice: Brand-new coverage of Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands reflecting their recent recovery after the destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian in 2019.


  • The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021 caused a steep drop-off in tourism to many destinations, but surveys have shown an ongoing interest in international travel once it becomes safe again. The number of Americans traveling overseas is expected to increase in mid-2021, once vaccinations have been administered to a wide variety of people.
  • Pre-Covid, the Bahamas saw a 9.7 percent increase in inbound tourism for 2019 with 7.25 million international visitors per year, according to the World Tourism Organization.
