Take wetsuits if you want to snorkel. The water
is often a lot colder than you would expect. Especially this time of year in the northern part of the Bahamas
As everyone has already noted, you have large grocery stores in Marsh Harbor and Nassau
and a medium sized one in Georgetown
. Plan on paying roughly double for everything (some things are a little less, some things are a little more).
Really telling was being in a hardware
store in the Bahamas once, with a friend who owned a hardware
store in the US and walking around and listening to him quote the US prices in his store of the exact items that were for sale
in the Bahamas. Some items were priced as much as 4 or 5 times as much. But, every once in a while we would come across an item that he said was priced less than what he sold it for. Go figure.
