  • 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, which has not been updated since 2019.
  • Coverage of Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands reflecting their recent recovery after the destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian in 2019.


  • Pre-Covid, the Bahamas saw a 9.7% increase in inbound tourism for 2019 with 7.25 million international visitors per year, according to the World Tourism Organization.
  • Cruise arrivals in 2022 increased by nearly 400 percent over 2021 and were less than 1 percent below 2019 cruise arrivals.
  • December 2022 saw total arrivals eclipse 900,000 visitors, more than any month in Bahamian history. (Source)
