I just got the work permit with DACA. I was wondering if I am able to travel to Puerto Rico, Hawai or the Bahamas? Would there be a problem on the board of entry to the US when coming back?
Puerto Rico and Hawaii are part of the U.S. However, the Bahamas is an independent country. You would need an advance parole in order to travel there.

Don't push your luck too far.. Be grateful you just got DACA approved.
While you can travel to PR on your EAD, you cannot expect to be readmitted to the U.S. after having traveled to a foreign country or territory (Bahamas) without an advance parole document.
I would strongly recommend against applying for an advance parole document now.
