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

Wonderful 2 bedroom house with endless pool, beautiful view of silly creek 2 kayaks and all the accomodations one could ask for in this adorable home. Staff were wonderful.

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

If this is your first trip to Turks & Caicos beware of the Air Port Departure! The Providenciales Air Port is both small and very hot. Check-in lines are usually long and slow moving as well. Get to the air port early as seating is limited in the terminal. Also I would recommend eating before heading off to the air... More

We were lucky to visit on a beautiful sunny day so the views were spectacular. The visitor experience is undermined a little by the long queues and facilities which feel quite old

I recently vacationed in Provo for ten days and was appalled and horrified by the way the natives treat the stray animals on this island. The island is very small but there are 4000, yes four thousand stray wild dogs dying of heart worm and starvation there. I drove by 10 dead dogs on the main thoroughfare and was shocked... More
