Close your eyes, imagine a warm breeze, the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore, sand beneath your toes, and a cool beverage in your hand. We want to set the landscape of today’s Destination Spotlight featuring the warm, the sunny, the colorful: The Bahamas, and Hosts Global Member, and local experts, Cacique International.
Perhaps the best kept secret of The Bahamas is the country’s sheer size and diversity. With 700 islands and cays, The Bahamas is an unmatched destination, a heart-pounding adventure across 100,000 square miles of the world’s clearest ocean. Secret sandbars, secluded pink-sand beaches and miles of irresistibly blue waters. In short, the most idyllic setting for an event. But beautiful beaches are just the beginning! Venture beyond them and discover islands humming with history, art, nightlife, and culture.
The Bahamas enjoys a warm, agreeable climate that varies little year-round, and is easily accessible with many direct flights from the United States, Canada, Latin America and the United Kingdom. The Bahamas has a unique biodiversity on each island. Natural wonders of one-of-a-kind gems, colorful wildlife, winding creeks, golden shores. Some call it a sanctuary, others call it a natural occurring museum. One thing is for certain, your guests will all call it paradise.
