Default Abacos

Good afternoon,

My wife and I are planning a little week long getaway to the Abacos in March.

We want a pretty laid back vacation. We will probably take a few boat trips while we are there. We would also like a little night life.

I haven't been there in over 15 years and she has never been.

That being said, where would you stay? We were looking at Elbow Cay, Guana, and Green Turtle. Or should we stay in Marsh Harbor to be more centrally located and just take some day trips to the other destinations?

Thanks for your help. I know it breaks the rules, but no pics of wife due to her job.

My wife and I took our boat from Ocean Isle Beach in NC down the waterway and over to the Abacos in May of 2016. We spent several nights at the Green Turtle Inn on the front end of our trip and several more there on the back end of our trip. The food at the Green Turtle Inn was by far the best the we encountered on the Bahamas. We also spent a week in Elbow Cay in a rented house near the Abaco Inn (Captain's Quarters). If I had to recommend just one spot to stay, I would recommend Elbow Cay. It just seems to offer a few more options in my opinion.
I would strongly recommend that you rent a boat for your time in the Abacos.
That will allow you to explore all of the islands at your leisure. if you decide not to rent a boat, you should certainly consider renting a golf cart if you are staying on Elbow as it is a pretty good hike from one end to the other. Water taxis can also get you from place to place but I have little experience with the as I have either rented or taken my own boat.
Golf carts tend to go pretty fast so you should reserve one as soon as possible if you decide to go that way.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Have fun.
