This was answered in a pervious question you posted. So again: Bahamas dollar and US dollar are on par and used equally and interchangeably in the Bahamas. You can use whichever you choose, keeping in mind that you may get change back as a mix of both currencies. Yes, you can get both US and Bahamian dollars from the ATM (known as ABM) machines -- some will clearly state that it only dispenses B-dollars, which others, usually at the casinos and tourist areas, will also give a choice of US-dollars. It is ideal to spend whatever Bahamian dollars you have before leaving the country, as it is difficult to exchange otherwise.
