Snow on Christmas might sound good in a song.  But let’s face it, being really cold is not a lot of fun.

You know what is fun, though?  How about lying on a beach?  Or swimming in a pool?  How about racing down a water slide?

How about swimming alongside dolphins?  Having a meet and greet with sea lions?  Or snorkeling alongside exotic tropical fish?

How about doing outdoor sports you can’t do during a snowstorm, like golf or tennis?

These are just some of the things you can do at Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas.  Atlantis is an amazing luxury resort with 5 miles of white sand beaches, fourteen pools, and the world’s largest open-air marine habit with 50,000 aquatic animals, among other amazing amenities.

Atlantis is a wonderful hotel to stay in any time of the year.  But perhaps it is more special around the holiday season.  And not just because of the weather, though that helps (average lows in December are after all around 66 degrees with highs around 80 degrees).

No, I’m actually referring to all the wonderful decorations and festivities at Atlantis Bahamas during the holiday season.  For example, every hotel and the Marina Village will each have its own Christmas tree.  And each Christmas tree will be unique with its own holiday theme.

But there are festivities in addition to decorations like the Christmas trees.  I want to tell you all about them.  And then I’ll tell you how to save money when booking an Atlantis Bahamas vacation!
