Map of the Turks & Caicos

Providenciales is a 25 mile long island in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Fondly called Provo, it belongs to an archipelago of eight major islands and numerous uninhabited cays located 575 miles south of Miami and 39 miles southeast of the Bahamas. Provo is famous for its unspoiled beaches, spectacular clear, turquoise water and pristine coral reefs. Provo offers an uncomplicated lifestyle and natural beauty. It is truly a water and beach lovers' paradise. After your first vacation on Provo, you will appreciate why the locals call it “beautiful by nature”.

Best of all, getting to Provo is easy, thanks to its international airport which accommodates many non-stop flights from the US and Canada on several major carriers. For more information about airlines and schedules into Providenciales, visit the provo airport web site.

Car Rentals

When visiting Casa Varnishkes, you will need a car to get around the island, where we drive on the left side of the road. There are many auto rental companies on island, including the well-known names (Avis, Hertz, Budget) and some local companies. We recommend:

Grace Bay Car Rentals 649-941-8500

Tropical Auto Rentals 649-946-5300

These companies will meet you at the airport, usually with the rental car. Their personnel are friendly, their prices are good and their cars are just right for getting around the island. Both companies have vehicles for larger groups. Some of their cars have right sided steering; make sure to ask when you reserve.
