People to People Program on Grand Bahama Island

The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism has a free program that lets you experience Bahamian culture and cuisine as well as learn more about their history and develop long-lasting friendships with one of the many Bahamian ambassadors. Bahamians love meeting new people and making friends. When you join the complimentary "People-To-People Experience," you’ll be paired with a Bahamian ambassador who will show you their culture and way of life. Ask SKJ TRAVEL how to experience this program and who to contact. This experience has proven to create lasting friendships and a deeper knowledge of the island, culture, music, politics, history and so much more through firsthand interaction with the people that make the Bahamas so great.
