San Salvador Travel Guide
Mail boats that bring supplies to the island each week make an adventurous mode of transportation. You'll ride with groceries, large and small appliances, automobiles, and sometimes even livestock. All boats depart from Potter's Cay in Nassau. Schedules change frequently. M/V Lady Francis leaves Tuesday for San Salvador and Rum Cay, returning Friday (12 hours; $60 one-way).
