The Turks and Caicos (pronounced Cay-cos) are located 1-1/2 hours from Miami, tucked halfway between the tip of Florida and Puerto Rico. For many years, this British crown colony, ruled by a governor appointed by the Queen, was better known to the world of banking than among travelers although an increasing number of celebrity travelers has drawn the public eye to these islands.

Although the chain is composed of nearly 40 limestone islands, only eight are considered destinations. Providenciales or Provo is the center of the tourist industry. The capital of the Turks and Caicos is the island of Grand Turk, a short hop from Provo. This seven-mile square island has some historic buildings and the national museum, a must-see for history buffs.

Other inhabited islands include North Caicos, the most verdant island in the chain; South Caicos, a fishing center; Middle Caicos, home of several sea caves; and Salt Cay, a tiny island of only 300 residents that was once the world’s largest producer of salt.
