it's not uncommon for there to be an outage (power or networks) for up to a couple days or more. Not only will ATMs not work
, but they won't be able to do CC transactions either. Good idea to have enough cash on hand to carry you through a few days.
PS. Found the BOB (Bank of Bahamas) ATMs didn't charge a fee and didn't limit the size of withdrawal - the Canadian banks all slap a $3 or $4 (plus VAT) charge on each withdrawal, on top of whatever fee your bank at home charges and cap the amount you can take out at a time. Foreign cards don't work
in Commonwealth Bank machines.
