English Language and US Dollar

The food is also a real selling point. There are a great number of restaurants offering traditional foods of the area as well as plenty of delicious and affordable places to get sea food.
For somewhere totally chilled

The Turks and Caicos islands are such a chilled destination you will return feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and revitalised. There isn’t a big nightlife scene and only one casino meaning big nights out aren’t the done thing – ideal for taking it easy, relaxing on the beach and watching the sun set with a glass of wine. There aren’t any rowdy or super budget accommodation options meaning it is more a place of luxury to go and relax and isn’t overly swamped with hoards of tourists partying through to the early hours.
