NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 21, 2014) - With their new service to Grand Bahama Island, it's no surprise Vacation Express has scoured the island to find the Best Of for their travelers, in addition to crystal blue waters, golden sands and island breeze. Think you're reading about heaven? You are, sort of. The Bahamas comes pretty close. It's no wonder people say: "It's better in the Bahamas." Because it really is. Leave New York | Newark and head to Grand Bahamas for four nights from May 2 - October 24, 2014.

For a very limited time, children under 12 can fly for fares as low as $199 including taxes on their exclusive Bahamasair non-stop flights. What's even more exciting is both all-inclusive hotels, Memories Grand Bahamas Beach & Resort and Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach allow children under 12 to stay, eat and play for FREE when traveling in the same room as an adult. This is the best and most affordable way for a family to get away this summer. Who can beat low priced, value-packed vacation packages? No one but VACATIONEXPRESS.com. Space at these prices is limited and peak flights will be priced slightly higher.

"These deals to Grand Bahama Island offer immense value to families that are looking for a low, predictable vacation price," says Kevin Hernandez VP of Sales and Digital Strategy. "Unlike a cruise vacation, with Vacation Express there are no huge bar bills at the end of the trip when you check out of an all-inclusive resort, so check out Memories, one of my favorite spots." 

WHAT DOES ALL-INCLUSIVE REALLY MEAN? Meals, drinks, daily activities, non-motorized watersports and evening entertainment. 

WHAT TO DO? The weather rarely dips below 80 degrees year-round so water enthusiasts will feel right at home. Offering snorkeling, boating excursions, scuba diving and even cave exploring trips, Grand Bahamas is the place to head to for activities including swimming with the dolphins or sharks. No trip to Grand Bahama Island is complete without experiencing the ecological wonders of Lucayan National Park. Along with Petersons Cay, the national parks are maintained by the Bahamas National Trust. Lucayan National Park's 40 acres of protected land features one of the longest known underwater caves on the planet. More than six miles of caves and tunnels are already charted, topped by lush greenery. Experts will receive a rush when exploring some of the world's longest underwater limestone caves, which will take up one day; the experience will last a lifetime.

WHERE TO STAY? Inspired by the sun-kissed beauty and rich culture of Grand Bahama Island, the all-inclusive Memories Grand Bahamas Beach & Resort occupies a half mile of pristine beach just outside of the peaceful town of Lucaya.

For a revitalizing experience visitors can spend the day at their state-of-the-art Spa and Fitness Centre. The Memories Grand Bahama offers exciting activities from Unlimited Free Greens fees at the Reef Club Golf Course by Robert Trent Jones Jr. to family-friendly facilities at their onsite Splash Pad with slides for kids and a Teens Club for ages 13 to 17.
