Commuting from the United States is increasingly popular due to the proximity and now more popular airline routes to and from the Bahamas. Multiple daily flights are available to the more popular destinations and airlines have now discovered a demand for routes to the Out Islands.
The Out Islands of the Bahamas are one of nature’s gifts to the world. An unspoiled area of natural beauty and tropical waters unlike anywhere else in the world. Getting to the Out Islands is easier than ever. Flights are under two hours from Florida, US and relatively inexpensive. No wonder it’s becoming a popular center for business and travelers. There are numerous resorts and daily excursions available to visitors coming from all over the globe. However, these travelers require and demand amenities such as restaurants, retail stores, and professional services.
Commuting to the Out Islands is becoming a more popular option for business owners and employees who choose to live in other areas such as the United States. Flights can accommodate these travelers daily or weekly to and from their business locations. Staniel Cay is a popular, central destination in the Out Islands due to its airstrip and ample services. Boats are commonly used and readily available to get to other island destinations where workers and employees need to get to. Unlike long, uncomfortable, and expensive taxi rides in other cities, the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean aren’t at all bad to commute.
Accommodations for workers are also becoming more popular in the Out Islands. Although resorts and hotels have been a mainstay for quite some time, many villas and cottages are being used weekly for professional and business services. Luxury resort villas are also available and surprisingly affordable to corporate visitors who need to spend multiple nights in the Bahamas.
