Not as much of a tourist area as I had hoped. Plenty to do and see on the island though, just not as much as I was expecting downtown. The Island itself is beautiful with great beaches and water! Plenty of outdoor activities. Great visit overall. Plenty of restaurants as well. Great place to just relax and get away!

Our family vacation in January 2015 in the Providenciales was interrupted by a robbery. The robbers broke windows to gain access to the rented home in the Grace Bay area. Cell phones, tablets, jewelry and easy-to-carry but personally valuable items were stolen. The lost pictures and personal items is what hurts. Thankfully we avoided confronting the burglars and did not... More

This place is gorgeous. That's all I can say. If you like tropics then this should be top of your holiday destination list. White sand and turquoise water filled with corals. Very clean place, friendly residents.

If you go to "downtown" Providenciales, all you will find is a couple of short blocks of shopping and restaurants. Good choices of shops, so you will definitely find souvenirs here. There is a nice ice cream shoppe, very upscale, but be prepared to pay $15-$20 for a sundae. There is a lot of street parking and a couple of... More

We have traveled a lot & most places have a large area to shop for your trinkets to take home. We were surprised that there is one main area to shop on the island called The Saltmills. You won't find any bargains here either. Our resort actually told us about a "market" place where you can get your t-shirts, etc.... More

My husband & I took our 3 kids (ages 9, 8 & 4 years old) to Turks and Caicos for our winter vacation. I researched professional photographers before we left and after speaking to a few of them via email, I chose Ileana with ATTIMI Photography to take family picutures for us. She was very warm, patient, fun, creative, smart,... More

We went to the Gourmet Grocery every single day of our trip to Turks and Caicos. Although the prices are rather high, buying breakfast foods (cereal, milk, fruits, etc.) and lunch foods (deli sandwiches, microwave meals, etc.) made using this grocery store a great alternative to spending a lot of cash on meals at the local restaurants. I highly recommend... More

Our family went to Turks and Caicos Islands to visit friends and we had the most incredible photo shoot done by Ileana. It was fabulous!!! We had so much fun, she made us all feel so relaxed and the special moments she captured are memories for life. We have the photos all over our house and can't wait to go... More

Regrettably, I have flown into and out of Provo many times but have never spent the night there. The people are friendly and live on "island time" so don't get in a hurry to do anything, just chill out and enjoy the beautiful island with sugar fine white beaches. One perk of being a "Capitan" of a private jet is... More
