Bahamas Vacations

Just hearing the name Bahamas makes you long for lazy days on sparkling beaches. Your Bahamas vacation will help you unwind from the rat race at home. An archipelago of hundreds of cays and islands in the Atlantic Ocean southeast of Florida and East of Cuba, the Bahamas attracts vacationers, snorkelers, and scuba divers to exotic destinations like the Bimini black coral, the Andros Barrier Reef, and Thunderball Grotto. You can lounge around the beach or rent a car in Nassau to explore the area in comfort.
