Abaco’s 87,000 stopover visitors in 2012 were down 22 per cent from their pre-recession high, a senior tourism official revealing that negotiations were being held with a major US carrier to provide jet service beyond Miami and help fuel a turnaround.

David Johnson, the Ministry of Tourism’s director-generalm, told the Abaco Business Outlook conference that a new jet service between the Abacos and the US was no more than a season away.

He described Abaco as having the most diversified tourism offering and greatest potential for further economic growth in the Bahamas.

“The Abacos attracted some 95,000 stopover visitors in 2003, and by 2012 it had slipped to some 87,000 stopover visitors,” Mr Johnson said.

  • “STONEMAN”….hahaha!, is this guy for real? How do you expect people to take you seriously with a name like that? Go smoke another joint!….hahaha!

    • Val, the men here act like children, they think it’s cool to have a gangster middle name. Like “Die” Stubbs, or this idiot “Stoneman”. He probably thinks he’s a gangster or a hit man. This is why there are so many rapes in my Country, because a mature woman find them stupid and foolish, and won’t give them the time of day. We want real men, not kids acting like a bunch of wanta be’s! Grow the F… up, life is hard enough, we need men we can count on!

  • Yeah, you’re right! We should all just lie down and let all the invaders just roll over us… The cane toads, the illegal migrants, the speculating “investors”, gun and drug smugglers, poachers, etc.. Don’t resist, or even complain… Jah has a plan..

    • Yes, you should crack pipe, you’ve earned it! You’ve all been lying down on your lazy asses for decades; now your complaining? Disrespectful, lazy ass punk! You will never own Bahamian land, it will always be Crown Land. The Royal family will only lease it to a punk like you, who has done nothing with it for years, except for running it into the ground by littering it, or growing marijuana on it! The Cane Toad is going to out number you lazy ass Bahamians! You’ve killed thousand already, that means there are hundreds of thousands. And soon, you lazy ass punks; there will be millions! I hope there are so many toads, that you’ll find them in your toilets when you have to go! And make fun of God too, punk, hopefully you’ll find one up your Ass!

  • The more Cane toads you kill, the more they will reproduce. You have killed thousands of Yahweh’s creatures to date, remember, the Earth is his. Who do you think you humans are to cast judgment on Yahweh’s decisions? You anger the King of the Universe, the King of all that is! From the farthest ends of the World, from the West, will come the destroyer to your doors! Holy is the name of Yahweh and all his wonders!
