Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer’s palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration. Just ask Christopher Columbus, he bumped against these limestone landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history. But adventure didn’t end with the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. From pirates to blockade dodgers to rum smugglers, wily go-getters have converged and caroused on the country’s 700 islands and 2400 cays for centuries.

Christopher Columbus bumped into these limestone landscapes in 1492, and since that time the area has been the scene of countless struggles between the European powers of France, England, and Spain, and for a brief period of time it was ruled by pirates! Today it is a prosperous nation that recently was ranked by Bloomberg Business Week as the 5th happiest country.
