    We are getting ready to go to the Bahamas. Any suggestions on what is the best options for cell phone usage. Our provider is verizon. I have a hotspot as part of my plan. Can that be used without a fee to connect to the internet?

    Call Verizon and tell them you are going to the Bahamas they will walk you through your options. They will tell you how to set up your phone once you get there so you can text/call. When I went to St. Croix last year, it was free to text but was 1.99 a minute to make a call. Not sure about internet stuff, there was free wi-fi at the resort where we stayed.

    Yep, and you need to contact Verizon before you go.

    You should see if your hotel offers free WiFi. I used WiFi whenever I could in Europe earlier this year but still rang up over $50 in data fees over a two week period.

    Check Clark Howard's web site. He is always giving advice on how to handle this.

    I went to Freeport in February of '12 and it was a bit below what they said the average was. The temp hung around mid 70s with some cloud cover. So it was comfortable but not what I was hoping for, which was closer to 80 :)

    Thanks! We are planning on doing the Atlantis Aquaventure, maybe a bit cold for me to swim but for an 8 and 9 year old, they won't care...

    We went 2 years ago in December and the weather was perfect! We went in the ocean, pool, laid out in the sun, etc. definitely 80s temps!

    If you're near Nassau and want to go snorkeling, etc - we used "The Total Package" - and they were great! and one of the more reasonably priced ones for everything they offered!
