The Turks and Caicos Islands are a group of tropical islands located about 650-miles southeast of Miami, FL. As part of the British monarchy, the islands have a long history of settlement, but currently have a home-rule government that was reinstated in 2012. The capital city of Cockburn Town and the largest city of Providenciales are where most of the people who live here reside.
When planning a trip, travelers find that most Turks and Caicos hotel deals are at properties located in the two main cities on Grand Turk Island. Visitors to the Turks and Caicos experience the mostly dry and sunny marine tropical climate, which makes for many pleasant memories while enjoying the outdoor amenities offered by Turks and Caicos hotel packages. While staying at Turks and Caicos hotels, guests enjoy special meals unique to the islands including conch and spiny lobster entrees.
The islands' official language is English, but many natives also speak Creole. At many of the hotels in Turks and Caicos, guests listen to island music sung in both languages. Visitors to the islands find that the local ripsaw music, which is unique to these islands, is one of the top cultural offerings.
