One Week in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

List View
Map View
One week in Turks and Caicos is enough to get a feel for the main island of Providenciales (known by locals as Provo). For a truly authentic Turks and Caicos experience, try spending part of the week in a hotel and the remainder in a private villa. Then mix up your experiences with diving, snorkeling, riding horseback along the beach, or getting a fabulously relaxing massage. One week is the perfect amount of time to spend on vacation in Turks and Caicos.
