We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Bahamas. They wrote...

"Many expats in the Bahamas find it challenging to get used to the more relaxed attitude towards punctuality and timeliness, as well as the frequently more laid-back approach to life that is seen in the local culture. Expats also need to be aware of the different customs and cultures that exist between Bahamians and expats, so as to avoid potential misunderstandings. Expats can also find it difficult to adjust to the more informal manner of communication which is common amongst locals. Finally, the Bahamas has its own particular type of etiquette and it can sometimes be tricky to learn the ins and outs of its most important cultural norms," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Bahamas.

"Work ethic is lacking. Ability to understand their responsibility for their own betterment. Tendency to take a laid-back approach to everything," commented one expat who made the move to Nassau, Bahamas.
