Food and alcohol costs.

We are planning a trip and wonder a couple things. I have seen posts about the cost of food, but nothing about drinks (alcoholic). Also is there anywhere you can buy groceries or beer and wine? is it off site?

There is a small grocery store on Paradise island also a Bristols liquor store in the same area.

You didn't mention where you were staying. Atlantis,??, a VRBO condo??

On the way to Paradise Island from the Airport ask your driver to stop at a supermarket to pick up groceries. They usually charge another $10-20 to stop depending on time. The grocery store on P.I. has minimal items at higher prices than the stores on the main island.

In the Bahamas, you cannot buy beer or wine in grocery stores -- only in the liquor stores, of which there are many! As anywhere, the further away from the tourist areas, the cheaper things get. Have your taxi driver make a stop on the way from the airport -- Super Value grocery store on Cable Beach with a liquor store next door. Unless you plan to just pick up the very basics (which you can do on Paradise Island), best to stop before you get there.
