    • Bullets found in luggage at airport, any further information?

      Turks and Caicos Islands May 5, 2013 at 5:40 PM

      Apparently there were two cases close together about a week ago where travellers were detained in jail after a single bullet was found in their luggage in a random baggage check at the airport. One was 60 years old and the other was over 80, and they each claim to not even own a gun???? Anyone have more information on this?

      Looking for rentals.

      Turks and Caicos Islands Apr 13, 2011 at 6:35 PM

      My daughter & her boyfriend are looking for a place to rent for a week on T&C. They want something reasonable (around1200.00) or less that's on or near the beach. Does such a place exist, LOL. They have checked online and of course can only find places that are 2600 or higher. I thought I would put this question out to fellow VT members. I've never been there myself so have no idea what's out there. They like peace and quiet and are not partiers. They will probably rent a jeep or something to get around, but would still like to be as near to the water as possible. Thanks in advance guys.

    • wanting to shop for local art, not tourist traps

      Providenciales Island Feb 15, 2011 at 7:53 AM

      We are planning a trip in June and I want to find some kind of local handcrafted item to bring home with us. I live near the South Carolina USA coast so some island/coastal we get here. I want something different but handmade. Do you have any suggestions of where we might plan a trip to shop and do some sightseeing as well? We have 2 smaller children (8&2) and want to make the very most of our trip for all of us. Thanks for the help!

      I was just at Grand Turk on a cruise and purchased several items at the Pirana Joe store including a keychain of the Pirana Joe fish. I hung it from my carry on bag. When I got home, I sat it on the floor and my dog decided to chew it up!
      I really liked it and would love to replace it. How do I go about it?

      Myself and 2 girlfriends (all in our 40s) are contemplating visiting Beaches Resort at Turks and Caicos in Feb 2010. We are a little worried about being surrounded by kids on what we hope would be a relaxing holiday (we love the looks of the beach). Anyone been to the resort in February who has a sense of how busy it is with kids and if it adults without kids can enjoy themselves? Thanks!
