We are from the Fort Worth, Texas area, and this is our third year here.  If you have not been here, it is amazing.  Whether you like fishing, cruising on a boat, snorkeling, seeing huge starfish, walking on a white sand beach, great sunsets, or just relaxing on the beach, this is the place to be. This is our third year to be in the Abaco Palms house, and it is still just as great as the first trip.  The most unique part of this rental package is the 16′ skiff. 

That was taken our first day here of the trip.  The boat is extremely convenient to my family since we love to fish.  We take the boat to nearby reefs and blue holes to catch fish to make a meal.  Be sure to leave on a rising tide.  If you stay out too late, you will have to get out and walk the boat over a couple shallow spots when the tide is receding.   We buy fishing poles that will break down into smaller sections, reels and a filet knife in the states, then pack them in our check on bags.

These are lane snapper that were caught at the blue hole – great eating fish.

This is a triggerfish (top) and a yellowtail snapper (bottom) that were caught at a nearby reef.

The scenery from the first and second story balconies is spectacular.

There are also many coconut trees on the property.  We have found that the best tasting coconuts are the ones found on the ground around the base of the tree.

All in all, we have had a great experience each year we have stayed at Abaco Palms.  In three years, there has not been a day that we have been bored.  This is a great place to experience the Bahamas.  We are here for four more nights, and I will post again before we leave.
