History and culture
Exuma has an interesting and rich history. From pre-colonial natives to the introduction of plantations and pirates, Exuma has a fascinating past. Many people who visit Exuma question the origin of the name. It is believed to have its roots in an Indian name, but the exact derivation has not yet been established. Since the arrival of Christophe Colomb, the country has gone through colonization by the Spaniards, then by the British. Between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, many pirates invaded the waters of the island. Exuma is today a peaceful tropical place with lots of laid back and welcoming locals. Tourists have been flocking there for years, and more recently with the popularity of the famous swimming pigs.
