The Bahamas is known for its friendly people and warm culture, which features a unique blend of African traditions and British colonial influences with a laid-back Caribbean island lifestyle. Almost any time of the year, an island somewhere in the Bahamas will be hosting a colorful festival, a regatta or a celebration. Key features of most Bahamian celebrations are music and dance.
When you retire to the Bahamas you’ll find that the locals are friendly to newcomers. English is the common language spoken, crime is relatively low, and the islands are positioned just off the Florida coast. The parity between Bahamian dollars and U.S. dollars means that any business will accept either currency. Both medical and dental treatment generally costs less in the Bahamas than it does in the U.S.
