Abaco and Grand Bahama islands are dealing with massive devastation after Hurricane Dorian.
Resorts and hotels on these islands are closed, and will be for some time. But Dorian did not affect the many tourist destinations in most of the southern islands, according to AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins.
The Bahamas need tourists to book vacations and spend their cash as quickly as possible, as tourism accounts for 60 percent of the country’s economy.
The country is relying on money from tourists to fund its massive rebuilding program. Jenkins says of the 700 southern islands, there are many you can still visit.
“Right now, Nassau is open for business, so if you plan on going to the Bahamas that I think is the number one destination for travelers,” Jenkins said. “You can go there, you can still book a cruise to the Bahamas.
