anyone been to the bahamas recently? im going and i want some tips or must-sees.  (staying in atlantis)

I went in February. Atlantis was amazing. I didn't leave the resort however since there is really no need to  ;D

One tip is to pay the cab driver and extra $10 to stop at a supermarket on the way from the airport to stock up on groceries. The supermarkets are far from Paradise Island.

Also depending on when you plan on going, you get get some really cheap rooms at Atlantis.

Sounds fun, enjoy!
