Club Med solves transportation problems for its guests by flying them in on weekly charter planes from Florida. In winter, charter flights from New York come in once a week. You can also rely on commercial transportation by air (Bahamasair flights) or sea (government mail boats), but if you do, you'll have to wait a long time before getting off the island.
Bahamasair (tel. 800/222-4262; www.bahamasair.com) provides flights to San Salvador 6 days a week from Nassau. Departure times constantly change, so check with the airline for the latest schedule.
The mail boat MV Lady Francis departs Nassau every Tuesday to head for San Salvador and Rum Cay. The trip takes 12 hours under uncomfortable conditions. For details about sailing on the mail boat, contact the dock master at Nassau's Potter's Cay Dock (tel. 242/393-1064).
