Bahamas Medical Tourism

Bahamas medical tourism is being developed by the Bahamian medical/healthcare industry and the Medical Association of the Bahamas

The Bahamas is located in the Atlantic Ocean north of Cuba and Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and southeast of the United States. It is just a short flight away from the state of Florida. It is a country consisting of 29 islands, 661 cays and multiple islets made of rock. On many of the islands, tiny villages seem lifted from the Massachusetts coast and set down amongst palms and pines and iridescent sands. The Bahamas have an international reputation for sailing, with regattas and races held year-round. Beautiful beaches with amazing underwater reefs are vastly popular amongst vacationers and divers.

Bahamas Medical Tourism Fame

The Bahamian medical/healthcare industry and the Medical Association of the Bahamas worked very enthusiastically developing the medical industry and driving the effort to position this nation as a premier medical tourism destination.

Climate

The Bahamas has a tropical maritime climate, which makes for generally year-round good weather. The Bahamas does not experience extremes of temperatures. In centrally situated New Providence, winter temperatures seldom fall much below 60F degrees and usually reach about 75F degrees in the day. In summer, temperatures usually fall to 78F degrees or less at night and seldom rise above 90F degrees during the day.

There are two seasons: summer which is from May thru September and winter which is from October thru April.

Currency

The Bahamas' unit of currency is the Bahamian dollar ($B) which is based on the U.S. dollar. One Bahamian dollar equals 100 Bahamian cents (pennies).

As the Bahamian and U.S. dollars are equivalent (1 $B = 1 $US), residents or visitors may spend either Bahamian or U.S. dollars in the Bahamas
