GETTING AROUND - TURKS AND CAICOS
There are three international airports in the Turks and Caicos, the main airport used by foreigners is the Providenciales International Airport in Provo, with smaller airports such as JAGS McCartney International Airport on Grand Turks, and South Caicos International Airport. Flying is one of the easiest ways to connect to the archipelago, however, this can be an expensive option.By Taxi
Taxis are one of the only ways to get around the islands, however, they are not available on all of them. Grand Turk and Providenciales have taxis readily available at the airport and cruise ports. Fares from the airport in Provo cost between $16-$86 depending on your final destination, rates are negotiable and some drivers will give tours of the island for an extra fee. Taxis fees can add up, if you are staying on one of the more remote islands, walking around or taking shuttles from your resort are a better option.By Car
Renting a car is a great way to explore the larger islands like Providenciales and Grand Turks. However, if staying on the smaller islands a car is really not necessary. Many of the attractions are spread out and having a car is the best option to explore at your own pace. Care can be rented on Providenciales, and Grand Turks along with other islands and can be rented by the day, week, or even hour. Major rental companies include Budget, Hertz, and National. There is a government tax on all hired cars $15.By Bike or Scooter
Renting a bike or scooter is a great and fun way to get around the island. Having a bicycle or scooter allows visitors to easily access beaches, small towns, shops, and eateries. Many resorts will offer them for complimentary use for their guests. Taking a bike ride through town in Turtle Cove, Grace Bay, and The Bight is an amazing experience giving riders a different perspective of the island. There are rental companies located in the main towns. Golf carts are available on the smaller islands to zoom around the less populated areas.By Ferry or Boat
Getting around the islands by ferries is provided on three routes Providenciales to North Caicos, Providenciales to South Caicos, and Grand Turk to Salt Cay. The longest and most popular journey is 30 minutes to North Caicos, there are multiple trips a day, however, there are less frequent trips made to Grand Turks and Salt Cay, maybe three a week. The journey costs about $25 for a one-way trip.
The islands offer many opportunities for boat excursions with island hopping, fishing trips, diving tours, and sunset cruises. There are options to rent catamarans and yachts for those who want to splash out on a romantic adventure.
