Must-do experiences

Your customers who want to discover Atlantis Paradise Island are looking for unique experiences.

Although this complex has a little brother, the Atlantis The Palm, in Dubai, the Bahamas is much more accessible for Canadians.

The water park, called Aquaventure, has 18 slides, including the famous "Leap of Faith", located at the Maya Temple, eleven pools and an artificial river where guests can float by on rubber tubes.
