I spend a week in Freeport a couple years back.
A few notes from my experience:
-extent of kosher food is lays and fruity pebbles. so don't rely on getting much there!
-Best time to go is when the sun is shining... I went Nov. time and pretty much sat inside all day due to the rain/cold weather!
-Cuban cigars are legal ;)

unfortunately flights from LA are a tad more then $0 so this trip is a no go for me!

Bahamas Minyanim, Etc...
« Reply #18 on: March 04, 2010, 01:38:44 AM »
Hi!
I saw a bunch of people asking, so i figured I'd try to get this started. If everyone (that is interested) could post here their dates, hotel, and number of people that could help a minyan (e.g. men), maybe we can all work something out. Also, I heard rumors of a Chabad down there; does anyone know about this?

I will be there (with as of now 3 other men) from 6/8 - 6/14.
6/8 - 6/9 in Island Palm Resort, 6/10 - 6/14 (Parshas Korach) in Bell Channel Inn.
If you have my email PLEASE don't PM me :)

I have a question - I was able to get tickets to go to Freeport and so were a few of my friends - but we're going to separate hotels - Since we each registered separately, and we each will get one room, will there be a problem if we skip the other hotel and stay in one hotel, two in a room?  Will anyone check?

I very highly doubt anyone will care about that.
Have fun and write a trip report!

Usually there are few restrictions bringing food to the Caribbean, but don't try to bring food back!
