Real Vacation: Turks & Caicos

I had the pleasure of helping Christine & her family book a Christmas vacation to the beautiful Caribbean island of Turks & Caicos! We looked at a couple different options but in the end decided that Turks & Caicos would best fit her need.

Here’s what Christine had to say about their trip…

How did you decide on Turks & Caicos?

I saw photos in a travel magazine and was mesmerized by the turquoise water! I had never been to the Caribbeans and had seen several other friends who had recent trips to Turks & Caicos. Everyone had great things to say about it, so I knew that’s where I wanted to go.

What was the highlight of your trip?

Just what most people go to Turks and Caicos is for the beaches. Relaxing on the beach after a swim in the warm waters is the best way to spend your time!

Any advice for anyone thinking of going to Turks & Caicos?

There are tons of mosquitoes and they will love you! So make sure you bring spray and wear long clothing. It becomes a bigger problem right at dusk. Taxis can be expensive as they have fixed fees per person, so if there are more than 2 travelers within your group, it’s more economical to rent a car.

Thanks Christine for sharing your trip with us! I’m glad you and your family had a wonderful time!
