To help you start planning your trip, AOPA has expanded its 2021 AOPA Pilot Guides for the Bahamas and the Caribbean to include coronavirus-related travel procedures in addition to airport- and destination-specific information. Both guides include a list of COVID-19 resources such as information about quick-turnaround PCR testing sites.

The Bahamas guide includes information for 57 airports, and the Caribbean guide covers 106 airports.

According to AOPA’s travel guides page, the comprehensive books include “maps with airport data and the layout of each island, Customs & Immigration information, and much more. Plus, you get info on the local culture, customs, the best way to get around while you’re there, what the food is like, and tips and suggestions from other pilots for where to stay and fun things to do.”

For example, the Caribbean guide provides information about each island, including currencies, country calling code and phone number format, average cost range for accommodations, and the island’s tourism website.

The guides cost $39.95 each and can be bundled with aeronautical charts. They are available in print or digital format. The digital version for iOS, Android, and internet browsers will be updated regularly for those who want to stay abreast of changing coronavirus-related travel procedures.
