How to Plan a Romantic Getaway at The Bahamas Without Stressing Your Budget?

Updated on March 17, 2013

The Commonwealth of the Bahamas is one of the most sought after romantic destination for honeymooners. The Bahamas has over 700 islands and 2,000 cays which are pronounced as keys. For over a decade it has been a popular and favorite destination of couples who wants to experience something new, refreshing and exotic. The Bahamas never fails their guests who are looking for beautiful, serene and stunning beaches. Though, there are a lot of luxurious and grand hotels in the Bahamas, it is not impossible for you to experience and enjoy a romantic getaway even if you are on a budget.


Schedule Your Trip During Off-season

The best time to get not-so-expensive rates is during the off-season. When planning a trip make sure that you are not setting the date during the peak season which is from middle of December to middle of April. This is considered as the same as the winter season of Bahamas. If you are on a tight budget, try to avoid this season because airfares and hotel rates are really expensive.

In fact, prices drops up to 60% when it is off-season. When it comes to the weather, there is not much difference between the peak and off-peak season. The temperature varies around 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. But, you should expect to have more rains during off-season and a bit hotter during the middle of the day.
