For the most part you can prepare for a trip to Exuma just like any other beach getaway, but there are a few special considerations. The Bahamas get sunshine and nice weather year-round. Their rainy season is from June through October. A sweet spot for your trip may be between November and May.
One of the most expensive parts about our visit was the food costs. Whether you’re at a restaurant or just picking up supplies at one of the local stores – food and drinks in Exuma are more costly than usual. An average meal will cost between $25 and $30 per person while drinks are about $5-6 for a light beer and $10-12 for a mixed drink. Food costs at the grocery store are roughly double what you would pay in the states (sometimes more).
If you’re trying to make the trip on a strict budget you should pack as much of your food and liquor as possible.
