Providenciales on turks & caicos

Blamona, you have good info. Do you or anyone else think we will get around okay on bikes and the occasional taxi? How far from the grocery store to Ocean Club West?

I second what justlaura said.

Roads are being worked on, so now I wouldn't advise bikes, and it's pretty far from OCW to IGA. (Okay, I'm an out of shape wimp)

Taxis a little on the expensive side.

Wonderful information. Thanks. If you think of anything else we should know before heading down, please add it on. I've surfed the web for much info., but nothing beats hearing from the locals. I've gotten a lot of info. from this tripadvisor site, too. We won't do any diving while down there, but will snorkel quite a bit and thaw our Wisconsin bones, even though it is unseasonably warm here.
