Planning A Romantic Turks And Caicos Vacation

By Jesse Henson

Turks and Caicos is one of the premiere Caribbean vacation destinations. If your idea of the perfect romantic getaway involves sandy white beaches, glittering turquoise waters and immaculate sunsets, then this may just be the ideal destination for you. With a wide range of resort and activity options, you can have a vacation that is as active or relaxed as you like. When planning a romantic vacation to Turks and Caicos, here are a few tips to help you.

Some Practical Travel Information

Located in the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos enjoys a year-round warm tropical climate. There is little seasonal variation in the actual temperatures but there is quite a difference between the rainy and dry seasons. The islands are unfortunately prone to tropical cyclones that blow in from the Atlantic. Generally, hurricanes can occur any time between June and November. To be safe, it is best to plan your vacation outside of these months. The peak season for travel is traditionally during December and January and during this time, travel can be expensive and the facilities can get quite crowded. If you are looking for a quite romantic escape then you may want to look at traveling during the mid-season, when you can benefit from more affordable rates as well as good weather.

There are frequent daily flights between Grand Turk and major airport hubs in the U.S. Flight times from New York City are approximately two-and-a-half hours and from Miami, an hour. If traveling from other parts of the U.S., try to get a flight connection that goes directly to Turks and Caicos. This will eliminate the need to stay overnight and extend your travel time. You can instead make the most of your vacation time on these beautiful tropical islands.

The great thing about a tropical vacation is that there is no need to pack much luggage. As you spend most of your time on the beach or in the water, the most important item of clothing is your swimsuit. Be sure to pack lots of sunblock, sunglasses and a sun hat, and you are good to go. Lightweight clothing will suffice for traveling and sightseeing around the islands.

Choosing the Perfect Resort

For some people, an ideal romantic vacation is sitting on a quiet tropical beach and simply enjoying one another’s company. For others, you may like to go out dancing in the evenings and enjoy the social scene together. Still others may like to explore the destination and take in all the attractions on offer. The resort that you select should match your ideals for a romantic vacation. Some have large stretches of beaches and secluded private villas. Others offer non-stop entertainment and activities. When doing your research, read reviews on the various hotels and see what they have to offer. This will give you a good indication if it is the type of resort that will be perfect for you and your partner.

Between the months of February and April, the islands become home to large pods of humpback whales that come to the shelter of the islands to give birth to their young. Going on a whale watching excursion is an amazing experience.
