We travel to grow - our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise - sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique.

Print edition is 368 pages. Photographs throughout. A newly updated edition with the latest information on the best hotels in all price categories, restaurants, dive sites, dive operators, fishing guides and much, much more. You'll find more information on these islands here than in any other guide, with thorough coverage of the Turks & Caicos as well. Comprised of over 700 dazzling islands, the Bahamas were once the playground of pirates. Modern travelers can find a different kind of adventure here, be they divers exploring a shipwreck, honeymooners beachcombing near a secluded cove, or gamblers touring the casinos of Paradise Island. This can indeed be a paradise if you are well-prepared. This guide is the best way to prepare, whether you want to explore the British forts and tropical forests, play with dolphins in the surf, seek duty-free bargains, or pay a visit to the Out Islands, where the residents are among the friendliest people in the world. The best accommodations and restaurants, sailing, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, diving, hiking, shopping, how to get around, sightseeing, entertainment, gambling, climate, banking, medical care, history and culture.
