Known to the locals as “Fish Fry” it is a great place to get just that, dishes such as fried snapper. Take in one of the local beverages like Kalik or sands beer while watching the locals practice for the New Year’s Junkanoo Parade.
Speaking of Junkanoo Parades, stop by the Educulture Junkanoo Museum in Nassau to learn about this local custom.

The museum boasts interactive exhibits where you can dance, make masks and meet a Junkanoo Queen!
Head over to George Street in downtown Nassau to visit the historic Christ Church Cathedral. Constructed in 1670, it is the first church built in the Bahamas, and considered “The Mother of All Anglican Churches” there.

Ethical Travel: Top Ten Destinations

At Premier Timeshare Resale, we are concerned not only with making the timeshare industry a legitimate one, but using our personal and professional resources to serve and support others. One of the ways we can do this is to promote responsible and ethical travel. Fortunately for PTR, Earth Island Journal does just that.


Each year, the Ethical Traveler (an Earth Island Institute Project) researches and publishes a list of ten destinations in the developing world that best represent policies and actions protecting both human rights and the environment. The goal in publishing this list is to encourage these developing nations to continue in their efforts through the reward of tourism spending. Volunteer researchers evaluate each country for its performance in the areas of human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection, as well as its appeal as a travel destination.


The number one country was the Bahamas, with its recent implementations to reduce human trafficking and significantly expand national parks and marine protected areas. Chile was another top ten destination, with its increased gender equality measures, ambitious environmental initiatives and a program to move logging workers into tourism. The Dominican Republic was also a favorite for its improved social welfare and a plan to become carbon negative by 2020.


The other destinations in the top ten ethical travel spots are listed here with links to timeshare resale properties within the country, when applicable: Barbados, Cape Verde, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Palau, and Uruguay.


Interestingly, some of the destinations voted as winners in 2013’s ethical travel spots are falling off the list. Costa Rica continues to be a hub for child sex trafficking, and Ghana, another 2013 winner, is found to have active discrimination against same-sex couples. Samoa also lost its spot due to unsustainable logging and unimproved women’s rights.


For some, and definitely for the folks at Premier Timeshare Resale, it matters where we go and how we get there. We are grateful for the Earth Island Journal for reporting this valuable information, and encourage you to read their full report here, if you are interested.

Destination Nassau

The Bahamas aren’t so far away, but they seem like another world of adventure. Whether for travelers who prefer to stay within their realm of familiarity, or for globetrotters who like to get lost in back alleys to discover something new about local culture, Nassau offers a host of possibilities.


Some access Nassau by cruise, as it remains a major port of call for several cruise lines, but others prefer to make it their sole destination through commercial or private flights. And there’s no wonder why: with limitless white sand beaches and opportunities for watersports ranging from fishing, sailing, snorkeling, a waterpark, and more, water lovers flock to the island to enjoy the splash and sun.


Nassau also boasts exceptional golf and world-class spas, with upscale and designer shopping areas for a leisurely afternoon. Casinos and clubs dot the city’s skyline, providing night owls with their own late night playgrounds. And for foodies, Nassau offers a culinary delight of various local cooking courses and Bahamian cuisines. Take advantage of one of the many tours of distilleries, cigar rolling, and chocolate factories, or visit the Straw Market. A unique place to shop for handmade straw items like baskets, hats, bags and dolls, it’s a great way to experience a bit of culture and pick up unique souvenirs.


A longtime city of luxury, Nassau offers the best in accommodations for the discriminating traveler. Don’t worry: there are affordable options too. Wyndham and Sheraton both have established timeshare hotels on the island that accord with their brand names’ levels of comfort and style, but you can find a Best Western motel, too. Timeshare properties are a must in the Bahamas for vacationers who can’t stay away, and Harborside at Atlantis is a proven favorite.


With warm, mild weather, the Bahamas are a year-round destination, and close to the U.S., are relatively inexpensive from Miami, Galveston, Orlando, and other southern port cities. Don’t wait to plan your next vacation, but consider Nassau today for its luxury, brilliance and options where you can sample its laid back Caribbean lifestyle.
