If the first half of 2011 is any indication of how busy the winter season may be this year in Turks & Caicos Islands, now is the time to book your winter vacation! Arrivals to Turks & Caicos from January - June 2011 (compared to January to June 2010) increased by 10% from Canada, 28% from the United States and a whopping 42% from other countries around the globe.
For vacationers, this means reservations should be made now at the Alexandra Resort while our early booking discount offers are in effect and our best inventory is still available.
For potential property hunters, the increase in the number of visitors to the island is good news and bad news. It's good news because if you own or plan to purchase a condo, you will have the potential to generate some great rental income when you are not using your unit. The bad news is that with the increasing number of people continuing to discover Providenciales, the bargain prices for properties here won't last much longer. There are still some amazing condo deals available at the Alexandra Resort, so contact us now for more information.

With so many wonderful fine dining facilities in Provo, there are many opportunities to enjoy a fabulous lobster dinner. The TCI lobster industry is centered mainly in South Caicos, although also available on all the other islands. The Caribbean spiny lobster (Panulirus argus) grows to about 60 centimeters in length but lacks the large pinching claws of their Maine lobster relatives. The Caribbean Spiny lobster is also a healthy treat, with only 143 calories and 1.9 grams of fat per 3.5-ounce cooked serving. Enjoy it while it lasts. Lobster season ends March 31, 2012.
