Escaping the winter cold and soaking up Bahamian culture, celebrating Junkanoo invites visitors to crack two coconuts with one hit. Originating centuries ago during times of slavery, Junkanoo was birthed as a cultural celebration of the islands’ heritage. Colourfully decorated costumes sway through the streets to the melodic tunes of local percussion after Christmas each year. Observed on Boxing Day (December 26th), Junkanoo is the perfect opportunity to sink your toes into Bahamian customs and lifestyle while savouring an island Christmas vacation.
