When do you intend to go? One packs for the Bahamas differently in June than in December.

I went to the Bahamas once and it was beautiful to me. The water was an amazing crystal blue and I found the culture interesting. They have a lot of street venders and they can sometimes come off as creepy. They will literally follow you to try to get you to buy something from them. I don’t know what the weather is going to be like during those months because I went in July, but I would suggest a few shorts, short sleeved shirts, like 2 or 3 jeans, and myabe a jacket in case you get cold. Like I said, I haven’t been during those I don’t know. If you’re going on a cruise like I did, I’d advise you to being a jacket because they keep the ship very cold, and there is no heater for your room. :/

I went to the Bahamas for spring break a couple years ago, at the end of March, and it was surprisingly chilly the few days I was there, especially at night. I would pack clothes that you typically wear in the spring and early summer, like shorts, lightweight shirts, etc., but bring a pair or two of jeans and a sweater just in case.

You’ll have fun, as @ducky_dnl said, the water is amazing…I had always assumed that pictures of the water in the Bahamas were photoshopped but nope, that’s really what it looks like! Try to go snorkeling while you’re there, in that water its like you can see for miles. Also, the people there are quite friendly and interesting. Make friends with a bartender during the day before they get busy, they have great stories and love to talk, as do a lot of the female market vendors…they love giving advice about life, whether you asked for it or not, although I’m sure it’s part of the ploy to get you to buy something…but honestly, depending on where you go, the stuff they sell isn’t bad…when I was there I got windchimes, a very beautiful candle, a necklace, and earrings and I get compliments on all of those all the time, so don’t be afraid to buy a few things.

Also, just as a warning, do NOT buy beer there. It is insanely expensive. I’m talking approximately $43 for a case and I’m sure the price has risen since I’ve been there. Rum is dirt cheap though, go figure!

It’s a great spot for adults; you didn’t give your age. Nice beaches, great food, fun casinos, bars and dance clubs galore. The times I was there I stayed on Nassau, but spent the evenings over on Paradise Island. Lots of fun. Take more money than you think you’ll need.
