The thought of planning a destination wedding already feels overwhelming. Now add the several testing requirements and safety measures to go to the Bahamas, and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of stress. However, the truth is, hosting your Bahamas destination wedding today is not much of a hassle than it was pre-COVID, as you’ll see in this post.

How To Travel To & Around The Bahamas For Your Destination Wedding

Traveling to the Bahamas is as straightforward as it was before the pandemic. Of course, the experience isn’t exactly the same, as there are a couple of changes to ensure health safety. Nevertheless, you can still catch a commercial flight from major cities in the U.S., Canada and other countries to Nassau, and even Paradise Island and Freeport. Just ensure that you meet the COVID-19 travel requirements to the Bahamas. When you arrive, you can get around via taxis and private car hires, if your destination wedding venue is at Nassau.

On the other hand, if your destination wedding venue is on one of the numerous Out Islands with miles of safe space for physical distancing, there are several modes of travel available. From the Nassau airport, you can travel via Bahamasair, the inter-island air service. You can also avoid the uncertainty of getting a connecting flight by hiring a private plane from Nassau. Most of the Out Islands have at least an airstrip where a private plane can land. Other options to get around the Bahamas include seaplanes, water taxis, and private yachts.

The need to take a rapid antigen test on your fifth day of stay in the Bahamas, and then another COVID test to re-enter the U.S. or your home country, sounds stressful and inconvenient. Where and how do you take the test in the Bahamas? It certainly won’t be fun wasting the time you ought to spend bonding with the love of your life tracking down an approved testing center. Your concern is legit, but you don’t have to worry.

There are several approved rapid COVID testing centers already in place in the Bahamas for convenient testing. Also, some hotels, such as Grand Hyatt Baha Mar and the Ocean Club Four Seasons, have coronavirus rapid testing facilities on their premises for guests. So, you can take the test and obtain the negative result to meet the requirement for your return back home, without much hassle.

Furthermore, concierge services are available in several Bahamas destination wedding hotels to make your stay convenient.
