trip to exuma in May

Thinking of staying at Sandals in May and wanting to do a few things

outside the resort. How expensive are taxi's to George Town? I have

read that the Island Routes tours are twice the amount of the other

Cay tours offered for the same excursion. Any suggestions on the better

deal?

While Sandals is a beautiful resort, you'll be missing allot by not venturing out.

Sandals is a business so they will make a few bucks if you book tours through them. There are lots of recommendations about tours on Tripadvisor, so take a look. We recommend Exuma Cays Adventures and they are #1 for a reason. Peter can probably pick you up at Sandals to save some $ and time!

Taxis from Sandals to George Town can run $50 each way. If you're planning a couple of days out, think about renting a car to explore. Rates start around $70 a day.

Once you start exploring, you'll get hooked!

Thank you for your message. I did see Exuma Cays Adventures rated #1. We will give them

a try. We always enjoy seeing the area we vacation in and not just stay on the resort the whole

time.

We are going in May too! It's our first trip to the Bahamas. We are staying at Augusta Bay and plan on renting a car and a boat while we are there. Everything I keep reading says to rent a boat so you can visit all of the beaches. We will probably do one of the tours to see the pigs and iguanas, just not sure which one yet.

Rent a car from Thompson's Car Rental and it will be at the airport for pick-up when you arrive. You have to explore this beautiful island. Go to Santana's for lobster. Go to Stocking island. Have dinner at Catch a Fire, and Big D's. Explore the wonderful beaches. We stay at Hideaways at the Palms Beach Resort and eat at all the local restaurants. We enjoy all -inclusives in Cancun but want to experience the island when visiting Exuma.
