guest post ~ rita

guest-post-rita-1my cousin rita finally came to visit – she’s not only my cousin, my bestie and almost like my sister. and it felt strange, in some way, that she wasn’t part of my life here in turks and caicos. it was specially nice having her, meeting our friends, showing her our favorite places and being part of our routine for a week, helping me plan the meals for the week and much needed catch ups!

so i asked her a few questions about her stay in turks and caicos and this is what she thought – Continue reading

guest post ~ luz

my sweet, sweet friend Luz (Luz means light in english, doesn’t she have the coolest name?) came to visit last month, and i couldn’t be happier to have her around for a whole week, to share my life in provo with her and have than enough time to catch up! we took her out to our favourite beaches and restaurants, and asked her to share her opinion on provo.

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special –

  • The nice temperature, day and night
  • The beautiful wild beaches and conch
  • The silence that I so much wished for
  • Everybody saying “Hi” everywhere, every time
  • A sand on the beach that doesn’t burn our feet
  • The gorgeous bougainvillea everywhere

what were your favourite things to do whilst on island –

would you recommend to a friend – Certainly!

guest post | marta via myseastory


marta and monica came to visit last month from paris, they were lucky because they arrived one week after sandy. although it was a bit windy and the sea was kind of rough, we spent a great week together running around the island, laughing all the time and taking lots of pictures. it was, once again, a great opportunity for me to see the island through their eyes – and enjoy it so much more. marta takes beautiful pictures, have a look and read about what she thought of turks and caicos. thanks for visiting girls!

The colour of the sea: amazing blue. The so-deliciously-warm temperatures. The lobster. The space and no-one-at-sight beaches: we were just US and the white sand. How cool is that? To feel like you have an island for yourself? The feeling that you are away from everything and everyone but the comforting thought that you are quite close to Miami. A couple of unique and secluded luxury resorts. The chilled mood that makes you just want to lay in the sand and forget about the world. The huge difference from the Miami glittering-vibe.

Grabbing so many and beautiful seashells in the sand. Watching the amazing kite surf “performers”. The unique and silent sunset at Amanyara. The day spent at Parrot Cay. Any on-the-boat activity. The local conch meals. The spa at Grace Club. Going to so many different beaches and having no one around!

I would force a friend to come if I could. It is the perfect destination to recharge your batteries, enter the I-don’t-have-to-think-about-anything-sate-of-mind. It’s so beautiful here…

guest post ~ pedro

pedro is my friend since we are 7 years old, oh well we had a gap of more than twenty years, but when we saw each other again we really felt as if time hadn’t gone by. we couldn’t believe we hadn’t seen each other that long! he was my friend growing up in school in madrid and spending summer vacations in the north os portugal. so i was uber excited to know he was coming for our friends’ wedding and would be sating a few more days to catch up!

ps – you will see panchi, the traveled dog, in pedro’s pictures – he will be visiting creta and thailand soon!

what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?

It’s an amazing island. Its beaches are breath-taking. The difference with other places is that even in high season, you still feel that the place is never crowded and that there are hundreds of spots in which you can relax and feel as you were on your own. Although there are hotels and houses by the beach, nature is very well preserved and the sea life is incredible. Scuba diving and snorkeling is a must. Don’t forget to go “conch” hunting and eat this delicious food in all its different ways. Plus people are kind and you always feel safe.

what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?

Without any doubt scuba diving, snorkeling, long walks by the beach, chill out with friends and talk to the friendly people that live there. 

would you recommend to a friend?

100%. There are few paradises on earth as this place. It’s a must, at least once in a lifetime. A fantastic place to celebrate unforgettable weddings or other special celebrations. You can’t go wrong with this place – except if you don’t like sunny places, the sea, diving and other related sports and spending time in relax natural environments.

a very special guest post ~ carleth & adrian

carleth and adrian are close friends, and, the cutest couple. as i’ve mentioned before (here), and luckily for me, they got married here in provo. i was flattered to know they had never been in turks and caicos and fell in love with the island through myseastory! i asked carleth to share a few thoughts on their special wedding weekend on island…

My dream was to get married on the most beautiful beach in the world, and it became true on May 26th.

It was a risk to organize a wedding at a place we had never been to, and most of our guests had never even heard of, but like someone once told me before: “with Turks & Caicos, you can never go wrong”. And so we did. We mobilized over 80 people from different corners of the planet, with the promise of paradise.

Grace Bay Beach exceeded our expectations and, on Memorial Day weekend, its turquoise waters created memories that will forever bond our eclectic and multicultural group.

It was a hot afternoon on May 26th, but nobody cared. Sweating on the dance floor of Bay Bistro was the perfect excuse for our friends to cool off in the water under the bright moon.

It was the happiest weekend of our lives, not only because we sealed our love for each other, but because of the wonderful activities in the island: the boat ride, the conch fishing, the snorkeling, the parasailing, the rum punch and the tasty fish tacos at Somewhere Café, all of which printed huge smiles on the faces of our loved ones.

One of our friends asked us if we will return to Provo one day, and we answered yes. “Maybe for our first anniversary” and he replied: “can we all tag along again??”
