The Turks and Caicos islands, often known simply as TCI, are an idyllic destination located on the outer edge of the Caribbean, just over 500 miles south of Florida.
Made up of around 40 islands and cays, only eight of which are inhabited, this haven offers a world of adventure situated alongside miles of white sandy beaches just perfect for relaxation.
It’s little wonder, then, that this British Overseas Territory is becoming increasingly popular with overseas visitors, drawing around 200,000 tourists annually.
Nor that hundreds of hotels and resorts are popping up throughout the islands to accommodate these numbers. But which ones to choose?
Here, we give you the low-down of why you should go all-inclusive in Turks and Caicos.
One of the main benefits of going all-inclusive rather than on a DIY holiday is that these resorts are purpose-built for your entertainment, meaning there are plenty of ways to enjoy yourself while you’re here without having to go to the trouble of organising it all yourself.
Many all-inclusive packages include the use of bicycles to explore the area or the opportunity to indulge in some water sports, all as part of your up-front price.
This means you can make the most of the what the island has to offer, without spending any extra pennies.
Many all-inclusive resorts also offer in-house guest services teams, whose sole purpose is to help you make the most of your time on the islands. This can include booking excursions for you. For example, the Alexandra resort even has an on-site office for Caicos Dream Tours, and even discounted rates when booking with partner companies.
Chance To Try Something New
All-inclusive resorts offer the perfect opportunity to try something new, without having to worry about the cost.
With many of them boasting several restaurants, this means you can sample some of the finest cuisines the islands have to offer without having to watch your spending, or worrying about whether you’ll have wasted your money if you don’t enjoy it.
Similarly, contrary to what people think, all-inclusive can offer you a greater degree of choice than a DIY holiday. Beach House, for example, offers you access to all three of her sister resorts for the price of one package, meaning you get to try all the different things the resorts have to offer.
So, whether it’s some spicy Caribbean food or a shot at paddle boarding, all-inclusive gives you more flexibility to try new things.
For many, the suggestion of a Caribbean retreat immediately screams expensive.
However, all-inclusive offers you the chance to enjoy some luxury without breaking the bank. With a lot of competition, many travel companies are offering increasingly good deals, meaning you can enjoy all the pampering and top notch service at a decent price.
Similarly, with everything included in the price, you can budget more when you’re here to afford that hot stone massage on the beach.
Go on, you deserve it!
