Visiting Turks and Caicos

Even though I've been all over the world, the destination I get asked about most frequently is Turks and Caicos. I'm sure I get asked about it a lot for the same reasons that I loved it: It's a short flight to an incredibly warm and tropical destination. We visited over Christmas and stayed at the Seven Stars Resort. Here were some of the highlights:

1. The resort- This resort is absolutely spectacular. My biggest complain with St. Lucia (which gets compared to Turks often) is that the hotels are over an hour away from the airport on a crazy road. In Turks, the hotels are very close to the airport and easy to get to. Once you are there, it is pure heaven. They also have two and three bedroom suites available if you are traveling with a large group or family. We enjoyed the beaches, oceans and restaurants inside of the fabulous resort.

2. The food- The food in Turks was amazing. I can't remember every place we ate, but I do remember that we needed to make reservations WAY in advance during the Christmas season. The food was way better than most Caribbean islands I have been to.

3. The beaches- This is THE BEST part of this island. The beaches are not crowded, there are very few sales people on them and you can really just enjoying being near the ocean.

What is your favorite Caribbean island? Where should I go next?
