The wife & I are looking to go to the Bahamas for a week's vacation @ the end of Oct. We love the Caribbean, but have not been to the Bahamas since I was about 12 yrs. old. We are not into the "all-inclusive" resorts - we enjoy exploring a bit and spending time in good water snorkeling/swimming in a laid back smaller hotel or condo located close to restaurants or food markets. Last year considered Cat Island, but we were pinched for time & could not spend too much time taking 3 flights to get there and 3 flights back. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks!
