Bahamas - Background Information

Lucayan Indians inhabited the islands when Christopher Columbus first set foot in the 'New World' on San Salvador in 1492.

British settlement of the islands began in 1647; the islands became a colony in 1783.

Since attaining independence from the UK in 1973, The Bahamas have prospered through tourism and international banking and investment management.

Because of its geography, the country is a major transshipment point for illegal drugs, particularly shipments to the US, and its territory is used for smuggling illegal migrants into the US.
