Turks & Caicos Is For Snorkelers


Turks & Caicos Is For Snorkelers

Providenciales, the main island in this chain of over 40 that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands, may be feeling some growing pains from its recent expansion into the luxury travel market, but a little economic recession can only mean good things for those looking to take advantage of one of the best spots for snorkeling in the Caribbean.

Cheaper hotel rates, fewer chihuahua-toting heiresses, and more access to the stunning coral and abundant dive spots are all good news for travelers hoping to escape the winter blues. Ever try conch? Providenciales has the world’s only conch farm. I’m guessing it’s way more fun to visit than your local arugula farm and probably far less smelly.
