A Quick Travel Guide for Turks & Caicos


The Turks & Caicos Islands offer stunning beauty, the top beaches in the world and year-round warm weather perfect for a getaway any month. Visitors to these tropical islands get to experience amazing snorkeling, sugar white sand beaches and some of the clearest waters in the world! No wonder these beautiful islands are a top travel destination in the Caribbean. Here is a bit of information for vacationers considering the Turks & Caicos for their next adventure.


The Islands: Turks & Caicos is a group of over 40 islands located in the Caribbean to the east of Cuba. Of the many smaller islands and cays, the main 4 larger island are Providenciales to the West, then North Caicos, Middle Caicos and East Caicos.

Providenciales (often called Provo for short) is the main tourism destination island with the most restaurants and infrastructure. This small 23-mile wide island is home to the International Airport and many hotels, resorts, restaurants and all of our 35 luxury vacation rental villa. We know this island like the back of our hands and would love to chat with you about how much it has changed over the passed 50 years!


Getting there: The international airport is located on Providenciales, airport code PLS. Most large US and Canadian cities fly direct to PLS along with many cities in Europe and South America.



Transportation: Though there are taxis on island, we highly recommend a rental car for transportation on island. It is the best (and often cheapest, taxis are expensive!) means of getting around, plus it affords guests flexibility to explore the island’s many beaches and activities. You can pick up your rental car at the airport and drive to your villa! (Just remember to drive on the left side of the road, you can do it, I promise!)


Activities: Sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skis, boating, kayaking, wind surfing, SUPs, beach horseback riding to name a few….these islands are the perfect destination for active adventurers or laid back beach bums! We are happy to make recommendations to you for fun activities and vendors who previous guests have loved.

Food: Provo has tons of great restaurants to choose from! From casual toes in the sand beach bars to high end fine dining, you can totally find a great spot for your group! There are two large grocery stores on island, the IGA and Graceway Gourmet. Our guests can also contact local cooks and chefs for in-home cooking services so you can relax and eat in!

Money: US currency and most restaurants accept credit cards. It’s good to have cash for souvenirs or beverages.
