The Bahamas Launches Virtual People-To-People Experiences

For the first time ever, consumers can indulge in the unique People-to-People Program from the comfort of their own homes. These sessions will be curated to small intimate groups (no more than five participants each) who will interface live with local hosts, allowing for real conversation and authentic connection through the sharing of Bahamian culture and traditions.

Available to book for a limited time, beginning today, the program offers five free virtual session themes with local ambassadors in The Bahamas:

  • Local Life 101: Walk with historian Arlene Nash Ferguson to learn about the culture and heritage of The Bahamas.
  • Cooking Like a Local: Wine and dine with ambassadors in a home cooking session featuring favorite Bahamian meals.
  • Happy Hour Like a Local: Shake up your afternoon with a famous Bahama Mama cocktail.
  • Walk and Talk with a Local: Take in Bahamian sunsets, tropical landscapes and sandy beaches on a stroll with locals.
  • Dance Like a Local: Junkanoo: Move to the beat of The Bahamas with a Junkanoo tutorial — one of the country’s most celebrated traditions.

“The People-to-People Program offers travellers the unique opportunity to enter the homes of Bahamian citizens and truly immerse themselves in our culture,” said the Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, Bahamas Minister of Tourism & Aviation. “We are proud to bring these experiences to the virtual stage and our ambassadors are thrilled to share their love of The Bahamas with travelers once again.”
