Cricket has been played in the Turks & Caicos since the 1950's. Island teams regularly competed against each other, especially on public holidays. The first game of cricket was played on Provo in 1983. There are now six cricket teams in Provo. In February 2008, Turks & Caicos won the ICC America's Division Three Championship in Argentina. If you would like to watch cricket when you visit Turks & Caicos, visit www.TCICricket.com to learn more about the various teams and game schedules.

With the full moon coming up this week, thought this was an appropriate post for the day!

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.
