Flying into Beautiful Providenciales

Typically when travelers think of the Caribbean, it’s an arrival by boat. Cruise ships regularly make the rounds through the region's islands. Unfortunately, most of these ships only dock for a single day, and sometimes only a few hours. The small islands lacked the infrastructure to support commercial airlines arriving, and so any flights that did arrive were cost prohibitive. That however has now changed. Regular commercial flights come and go from most of the Caribbean islands including the Turks and Caicos.

Ready to grab the next affordable flight to Providenciales (or Provo as it’s called by locals)? Getting there is the first step, once you’re there the real fun begins!

What are some things I should know before booking my flight to Providenciales?

There is more than one airport in the Turks and Caicos, and each are located on different islands. You will want to pay close attention to ensure you are arriving and departing from the same airport. There are nineteen cities that have direct flights to Providenciales; seven from mainland United States as well as Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto, Canada. From the Caribbean, fly direct from Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Haiti, and the Bahamas. Domestic flights also go to South Caicos and Cockburn Town. The best news? The longest of these flights is just over four hours making Providenciales extremely close to reach!

How do I get to and from Providenciales International Airport?

Providenciales isn’t a large island –it’s only 33 miles in size. Once you arrive you can either opt to rent a car or use a taxi. No matter where you want to go on the island, it’s only a short ride away. If you plan to arrive on an international flight and then connect to a domestic flight, you will first need to go through immigration and customs. Several companies also offer private vehicle hire either for transfers or to use during your stay. It’s also worth verifying with the hotel what they do and don’t provide for transportation.

What affordable hotel options are there on the island?

Planning a visit to the Turks and Caicos means preparing to spend a bit more money on accommodations. However the higher price tag comes with benefits. Beautiful swimming pools, stunning beach views, and unobstructed beach access are almost always included. Many also have complimentary kids clubs, rental of snorkeling equipment, complimentary breakfast, and other onsite activity. Before shunning away from what may seem a high price tag, dig into what’s offered. If you can afford a splurge, you will be rewarded. The Turks and Caicos have been a popular destination for honeymoons for years and many resorts cater to this demographic. Resorts like the Seven Stars and Gansevoort do all the work to make sure you can relax. Exceptional concierge services, delicious on-site restaurants, and gorgeous views to boot!

How can I reach other islands in the Turks and Caicos?

There are multiple options to reach other islands. One is to take a domestic flight to one of the other airports. Air Turks and Caicos and Caicos Express Airways offer regular flights to the other islands. Another option is to take a charter boat or ferry. Some offer simple point to point ferry service. If you’re after a unique experience like a BBQ on a private island or scuba diving and fishing then this also can be arranged. Visiting during peak season? You may want to make these arrangements ahead of your trip. However, if you’re visiting during low season it should be no problem to plan on the fly and book something once you arrive. Prices will also vary depending on the time of year.

How easy/hard is the airport to navigate?

In 2015 a new terminal opened in Providenciales providing more options and an updated façade for travelers. The runway was expanded and the terminal enlarged to allow for more traffic. Self-check kiosks, an expanded passenger lounge, and two food courts make time spent in transit much more comfortable. Even though the airport has been enlarged, it’s not a high traffic airport so visitors shouldn’t be concerned about getting lost!

If you’ve always dreamed of visiting a Caribbean nation but dislike boats, then flying to Provo is a great option to consider. With a year round temperature in the 80’s, some of the cleanest water and most pristine beaches in the Caribbean, and friendly locals, it’s the ideal destination for those looking to get away.
