It’s easier than you think to get here!
We have two full service international airports, Providenciales (airport code PLS, this is where most guests fly in to) and Grand Turk (airport code GDT), and limited entry facilities in North, South Caicos, Pine Cay, Parrot Cay and Salt Cay (some via ferry only).
When you arrive at PLS: you’ll clear customs, get your bags and when you exit the main doors, there’ll be a taxi lineup. Taxi fares vary based on where you’re going, but if you’re headed for example to the downtown Grace Bay area, you can expect to pay $15/person. The ride is just about 15 to 20 minutes too, so it won’t be long until you’re on the beach!
As of Fall, 2016, there are some new direct flights from Newark, Chicago, Washington (Dulles) and Houston now making visiting Turks and Caicos easier than ever. There are also nonstop flights from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, Charlotte, Miami, Atlanta and Dallas to Providenciales (PLS) available as well!
