After reading many threads on this forum about visitors being worried about the weather, i must say I am a bit puzzled??
I oftern read about those on vacation just staying indoors the whole time when it's not nice out and I can't seem to figure it out...
It seems to make no sense that you would spend a few grand (or more sometimes) of your hard earned money and then just stay in if its raining hard or otherwise not nice out. Seems like just money down the drain.
For less than 5% of the total cost of what most people spend on airfare, hotel, and other expenses in the Bahamas for a typical trip, one could buy good, if not excellent, rain gear from an outdoor store and with this, could tolerate (and maybe even enjoy) being out in all but the worst of conditions.
Granted if the weather is truly a safely issue (lightning nearby, high risk of flash flooding, etc) then by all means one should stay inside, but in ordinary windy and rainy conditions it certainly does not seem to make senes to just stay in..
While I am cerainly hardier than the average Joe when it comes to being out in the elements (i'm a weather buff none-the-less and like extreme conditions somethimes), i still can;t imagine why most travelers couldn't be out in all but the worst stuff.
Just seems silly to waste $$ and stay in.
