With winter quickly approaching, many of us are starting to think about where we can get away somewhere warm when winter starts to peak. When the days get shorter, darker, and colder, planning a winter vacation in the Turks and Caicos Islands is just what you need to feel the warm sunshine and relax. The Turks and Caicos Islands make the perfect getaway because, during the winter months, the weather and water are still warm so that you can enjoy a day on the beach or out on the water for a private boat charter excursion.
Benefits of Visiting the Turks and Caicos in Winter
The peak period for traveling to the Turks and Caicos is from December to March and not just because everyone has the same idea of going somewhere warm for the winter. In the Turks and Caicos, hurricane season is between June and November, and statistics show that the most likely time for a hurricane to occur is mid-August through September. However, there have been very few actual hurricanes in the Turks and Caicos, but it’s always better to know the chances are extremely low during the winter months.
Average Turks and Caicos Temperatures
The Turks and Caicos weather is relatively consistent throughout the year. The water temperature only fluctuates by a few degrees, and the swing between the “hot” and “cold” season is less than 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Typically the daily temperature ranges from 75-95 degrees with temperatures being a bit cooler in the evening and warmer when the sun is out.
Flights from U.S. to the Turks and Caicos are Short
Getting from the U.S. to the Turks and Caicos is easier than some other tropical vacation spots. Though the islands are small, there are two airports. The Providenciales (PLS) International Airport is where most guests fly into. You can catch a short 1 hour and 40-minute flight from Miami or a 3-hour flight from New York and be there in no time! Once you land at PLS, the central area of Grace Bay is only 15-20 minutes away.
Winter Hotel Deals in the Turks and Caicos
Many hotels and resorts in the Turks and Caicos offer deals when you book during the winter months. For example, Club Med is currently offering all-inclusive vacation packages from $135 per person, per night with up to $500 in air credits and free cancellation if you book your travel during the winter months.
Winter Activities in Turks and Caicos
When the fun activities slow down in the winter in the U.S., there is plenty to do in the Turks and Caicos. You can snorkel in the Turks and Caicos all year round! Snorkeling is a great activity because it is easy to do and you get to see a unique and beautiful side of the island! The Turks and Caicos have some of the best marine life in the world and the 3rd largest barrier reef. Taking a private boat charter is also an excellent way to spend time exploring the islands. While on the boat, you can go fishing and maybe even catch something for dinner!
