Turks and Caicos is one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean with its pristine beaches and enchanting culture. There is no other island that will ring true to that impression other than Providenciales. It will not be hailed 2011’s best beach destination in the globe by TripAdvisor for nothing.
Cheap flights to Providenciales is coursed through the small but functional Providenciales International Airport. With a strong tourist draw, the airport can be packed or overcrowded easily. It is therefore advisable that you make booking arrangements ahead, including your airport-hotel-airport transfers. Shuttles, public bus service, and car rentals are available to get you around. To save on costs, you may also choose the cheapest alternative to go around, which is walking. At certain points, attractions, shops, and restaurants are just within comfortable walking distance.
