Last part of july 2009 we rented a house on Providenciales - the house was on the other side of the island away from Grace Bay and its attendent resorts and condos. Best thing we ever did - away from all the touristy things and perfect for just relaxing and hanging out. It helped that we had our own swimming pool. No bugs the trade winds took care of that. But even with plenty of sunscreen we did burn. Plenty of activities on the island -if that is your desire from parasailing to golfing - I would recommend the reef fishing if you want to catch your supper. We had an excellent 5 lb. Grouper. Of course if you like to snorkel -best in the world.Just remember one has to drive on the left - after all this is British Domain. With a little over an flying time from Miami this is an ideal place to introduce yourself to the Carribean.
