Travel News

Hurricane Season

Yes, it is hurricane season and that can disrupt travel. But don't let that discourage you.  Why?

  • Cruise ships change their routes to avoid serious storms. It may mean your original itinerary doesn't quite happen, but ships are quite adept at making substitutions.
  • While parts of the Bahamas were devastated by Dorian, Nassau and Freeport were largely untouched and open for business.  Officials from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism said the best way for travelers to help in the wake of the deadly hurricane would be to visit the island chain and spend money at local hotels and businesses.
  • The Bahamian islands still open for business include Nassau and Paradise Island, The Exumas, Eleuthera and Harbour Island, Bimini, Andros, The Berry Islands, Cat Island, Long Island, San Salvador, Rum Cay, Acklins and Crooked Island, Mayaguana and Inagua.
  • You can enjoy many of these destinations for the lowest prices at this time of year.


Our Featured Travel Special

One of the best values is to stay at a recently opened resort that others do not know about yet.

Consider Atelier Playa Mujeres a 5-star, all-inclusive, adults-only resort located in Playa Mujeres. Guests in search of casual luxury at an all-suites resort with a focus on natural beauty and visual art will find everything needed for a rejuvenating getaway.
