Just like Georgetown?
Georgetown, Exuma is the undisputed Mecca of Bahamian cruising. As many of our long-time readers may be aware, we spent 8 weeks in GT on our way south and thoroughly enjoyed our time there, immersing ourselves in the various activities and parties that took place. Although we never had any intention of staying there permanently or even staying put as long as we did, for many others, Georgetown is the end of the line in their southern journey.
As we continued heading south, we found several places that reminded us a lot of Georgetown. When comparing the locations, we noted that each of them have a few things in common:
- They all offer decent to excellent protection from the weather
- They all have quite established cruising communities (with some cool people)
- They all have people that have been there for a LONG time and regardless of intention, seldom ever move their boats
Although I know there are others that we missed, here are a few in particular:
- Luperon, DR
- Salinas, PR (and to a lesser degree Boqueron, PR)
As is no doubt obvious from our posts, we are very much enjoying our stay in Grenada. Although the other places north of here that we listed are excellent stops too, we are truly happy that we continued heading south.
Organized Volleyball. This definitely looks a lot like Georgetown now!
