A cruise to The Bahamas with a stop at world-famous Paradise Island and Atlantis Resort is a popular vacation choice for many travelers. While the majority of cruise ship excursions to Atlantis will include the use of its 141-acre Aquaventure water park, those that prefer to take day trips outside the hotel can do so as well. The best way to get from Nassau airport to Atlantis is to take a taxi. Taxi prices are regulated so you can be sure you won't get overcharged. Buses are another option but they tend to be crowded and run on specific routes.
The Atlantis Resort offers endless sights and activities so a rental car isn't necessarily needed. However, if you do plan to explore the rest of Nassau or even venture off property, you will save money on rental car fees and on the inflated resort parking fees by taking a taxi or arranging for an airport transfer when you book your reservation.
Once you arrive at Nassau International Airport, you will need to cross the bridge that connects Nassau with Paradise Island. The easiest and fastest way to do this is by taxi. Taxis are readily available at the airport and cruise port, as well as in town.
Once you clear customs, it's easy to find a taxi to take you to Atlantis Paradise Island. Once you're on your way, be sure to keep a small amount of cash on hand for tips and gratuities as Bahamian taxi drivers are notorious for adding a generous tip.
