Comments Our two families spent first week of July in Provo at Turks and Caicos Club. Relatively small (21 units), 4 years old, well maintained by friendly, courteous staff, beautiful white sand beach away from bustle of Turtle Cove and Grace Bay condo construction. Snorkeling reef Units were large and well furnished - kitchenette, washer and dryer, etc. No rain all week - so no mosquitoes, either. Rates included breakfast. The T&CC restaurant, Simba, is good but their lunch and dinner menus became repetitious after a day or two. (Some "specials" have been special for months...). So you'll eventually need a taxi or rental car. Of the 4 other restaurants on Provo we tried, we particularly enjoyed Magnolia and Anacaona.

Three of us spent 3 days with Caicos Adventures, diving the reef and walls at West Caicos and French Key, while taking PADI AOW and nitrox courses. Most of our dives were 55-100 feet. Owner/skipper Fifi Kunz, his instructors Rich and Lil Moniz and the rest of the dive staff were very friendly, knowledgable and professional. Hotel pickup and dropoff were included. We all learned a lot, had great fun, and I returned with some good photos of coral and small critters - including a lionfish. Fifi's two cats are superbly equipped dive boats: roomy, dual ladders with deco bar beneath, fresh water showers, large and clean head, stable, and fast enough so the 18 mile trip to West Caicos took only 45 minutes. Even though it was the 4th of July week, they didn't overcrowd. And great sandwiches - en baguette, naturellement.
