Bahamas Cost of Living

The cost of some goods in the Bahamas may be considered to be relatively high due to the fact that most of our goods are imported and duty and freight charges have to be added. Automobiles, food and clothing fall into this category.

Medical and dental treatment is less than non-insured treatment in the United States. At the government-owned Princess Margaret Hospital in Nassau, or the Rand Hospital in Freeport, out patients’ visits are inexpensive, however the wait may be long.

Nassau/Paradise Island and Freeport, Grand Bahama, have fully stocked grocery stores with brand named goods.
