Readers, thanks for joining in on this epic excursion through the Caribbean. The islands are full of world-class beaches, mouth-watering cuisine, and exquisite culture. One destination, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, is the perfect retreat if you want to experience all this and more. So pour yourself a pina colada and relax as you take a closer look at the islands.
There is a popular saying that goes, “it’s not about the destination, but the journey”. While at the same time another popular saying is, “location, location, location”. Take a look at these top 7 reasons to choose the islands for your next vacation:
1- Unplug: Head on over to TCI and leave the electronics at home – or at least, at the villa. Take a breather from life and leave everything behind. The world, your schedule, etc. -the worries will all be waiting for you when you return home. In the meantime, enjoy paradise and a well-deserved break from it all!
2- Direct Flights: Turks and Caicos are located just south of the Bahamas, a short distance from Florida, New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Montreal, Toronto, and others. When people are searching for luxury villas in the Caribbean, they come to us for our hospitality and local knowledge. We love to help people experience the beauty, serenity, and unique charm of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.
3- Tropical Paradise: Based on the Island’s spectacular geography and geology, Providenciales is known as the “Paradise Island.” The Island is situated inside a natural lagoon which is protected by a coral reef barrier resulting in calm waters and shallow waters. This barrier reef is the third-largest in the world, with over 13 million tons of sand and countless species of fish to be seen. The Island offers natural beauty and relaxation with breathtaking views of white powder beaches and turquoise water. With approximately 300 days of sunshine per year, Paradise is the perfect place to relax and reconnect with family and friends.
4- Fun things to do: Whether you are looking to relax at the pool, get active on the beach or explore the island, there’s plenty to do in Turks and Caicos. The Caribbean is one of the most diverse vacation destinations, giving visitors an opportunity to experience something new each day. From snorkeling and paddleboarding to deep-sea boat trips and horseback riding, there are endless activities to discover. Plus, being surrounded by warm blue water and scenic views will help you unwind in paradise.
5- Relaxing activities: If you are a water sports fanatic, Provo has boat tours, windsurfing, and parasailing plenty. If you want to get a taste of island culture, you can go zip-lining or snorkeling, scuba diving, or horseback riding. For those with a competitive streak, tennis, golf, and water skiing are also available. If none of the above appeals to you, just relax in the sun. Enjoy the beach and the white sand that conveniently lines every inch of the shoreline. Go swimming in the pool, take a nap on the deck or sip on a cocktail while you wait for dinner to be ready. And when it’s time for dinner? Well, there are countless restaurants spread across the island, many of which serve some of the freshest seafood you will ever taste!
6- Ideal temperature: With an average temperature of 80 degrees and warm year-round, the Turks & Caicos Islands are the perfect destination for a winter vacation. Leave the iron at home. No need to wear stockings or ties, stilettos or suspenders; when you’re island-side, a wet bathing suit is casual, and a dry one is formal. (Some restaurants do have a dress code.) Bust out your best embarrassing island shirt Dads, and ladies make sure you remember the hats, sunblock, and water shirts for the kids.
7- Convenience: Do you speak English? Would you like to visit a place that also speaks English? Providenciales is a place where your bad Spanish and horrible high-school French are not necessary, and no translation dictionaries needed (as long as you can roll with the Caribbean dialect.) English with a fun Caribbean tilt makes the fun times more fun. The $USD is also the official currency so there will be no need for the annoying and time-consuming currency exchange.
