Punta Cana Or Turks & Caicos

Trying to decide between Punta Cana or Turks & Caicos for next vacation. Which has prettier beaches. Looking for beautiful water and quiet, adult all-inclusive. Thanks

Is there an adult all inclusive in Turks & Caicos? All I know of is Beaches...

If you have the money T&C is worth a try. Punta Cana is less expensive with very nice beaches.

Without a doubt, Turks and Caico but I am only aware of Beaches - all-inclusive also. If you are looking for an adult only, quiet resort, Beaches Resort is not where you would want to be. T & C is a fantastic travel destination.

Without-a-doubt, Turks & Caicos has outstanding beaches and surf conditions. You don't say when you are looking to go, but know that January has their coolest weather pattern. Club Med Turkoise is strictly adult-only and there is also an adult-exclusive section within the hotel portion of the Grace Bay Club.

Happy Travels!

It's so funny, my boyfriend and I were trying to decide between these two vacation spots. Both have great beaches. It was between The Reserve At the Paradisus Palma Real in DR & The Gansevoort in Turks & Caicos. We ended up flipping a coin & Punta Cana won. Turks & Caicos next year. Which ever you pick, you will have a wonderful vacation.

Read this article this morning - how cool would it be to have T&C a new Canadian province!

I would choose Turks.Check out the Gansevoort it is a very chic boutique hotel with gorgeous beaches. It is not adults only and definitely more pricey than any DR hotel.

Have been to both DR and Turks. Turks and Caicos has beautiful beach called Grace Bay. No all inclusive resorts except Beaches which is mostly family oriented.. Stayed at Grace Bay Club. A little stuffy. The island is very expensive

for the food at restaurants, etc. If we went back again we would rent a villa. For the price I would pick Punta Cana for all inclusive and overall less expensive. But everyone has their own opinion.

guys, you are talking/comparing two different worlds of vacation destins.

if you have the money, then take the Turks,

if you need All Inclusive because you are on the usual budget as most travelers are, then you take Punta Cana.

don't start to compare such two very different products.

on the Turks you have the Grace Bay Club (there may be more but i don't know any other AO) is a adults only section, much smaller/more limited than the big sections for adults here at the PC resorts, it offers 1 AO pool and 1 AO restaurant, it is not all inclusive, but the Turks are Not for the average budget AI traveler anyways.

maybe todays they offer more AO or AI options, someone who was there recently can chime in and give the info.

Club Med Turkoise is AI and adult only, isn't it?
