How Did We Get There?

It sounds more complicated than it is, but find the current entry requirements listed in my recent Instagram post. We used the Visit TCI site for all the nitty gritty details, super helpful. Also, we only managed to land one with our Turks and Caicos travel schedule, but if you’re flying out of Washington, DC, they do have direct flights. Around 3 hours long.

How Did We Transfer?

Provo Connection

Your Turks and Caicos travel isn’t quite done yet. Once your flight’s completed, you still need to get to your hotel. We booked Provo Connection via Viator, another one of my fav travel sites. They were courteous, on time, and provided me with the low-down on all the best places to eat! P.S. Subscribe to Viator’s email list and be the first to cash in on their discounts.

Where Did We Stay?

Royal West Indies Resort

The Royal West Indies Resort sits right on Providenciales’ iconic Grace Bay beach, and I highly recommend it for your Turks and Caicos travel. It’s got direct beach access, multiple pools, and an on-site bar and restaurant. Our unit was spacious, and had a kitchenette and private patio. Other positives included free bike rentals, good location (close to both the grocery store and a Covid testing center), and friendly resort staff and kitties.

Downsides? Our bathroom wasn’t the greatest. (It wasn’t bad by any means, but it certainly wasn’t spectacular either.) And, if you’re on a budget, you could likely find something cheaper. But this was exactly what the Adventure Partner and I were looking for! Keep reading for money-saving hotel tips, as well as a special discount!

What Did We Do?

Your Turks and Caicos travel wouldn’t be complete without a few off-the-beaten-path excursions. I always book through my trusty Viator account. (Love this site.) Things we did (and were supposed to do)…

  • Stand-up paddle-boarding through Mangrove Cay with turtles and baby sharks. Big thanks to SUP Provo for a great tour!
  • Bio bay sunset kayaking with glow worms. We didn’t ultimately get to do this due to a mix-up, but we’d still sign up again.
