Several months ago, I was lamenting that it had been almost three years since my last trip to Provo, and while I desperately wanted to get back to one of my favorite places in the world, I also really wanted to visit Harbour Island, one of the Bahamas out islands. I like the weather in Provo in late April/early May, and May also seemed like an ideal time to visit Harbour Island. So, I decided that I would combine the two destinations into one trip.
I am posting my report on the Turks & Caicos (T&C) forum because 1) A lot of the information is about T&C, both Providenciales where I stayed and Middle and North Caicos (daytrip), 2) This forum feels like “home” on TripAdvisor to me, and 3) In discussions about other islands that T&C forum participants like to visit, the Out Islands, including Harbour Island, frequently are mentioned, so I thought some comparison of the two destinations might be of interest to some people who read the T&C forum.
In summary, since I tend to be long winded, I had a great trip and really enjoyed both Turks & Cacios and Harbour Island.. I foresee both being part of my future travel plans, and I think I would like to visit other places in the Out Islands. On my trip, I spent four nights in Provo, one in Miami, and three in Harbour Island. I’m female (40s) and travelled solo. This was my fourth trip to Provo and my first time to the Bahamas.
I’ll include separate posts focused on specific subjects as responses within this thread to provide a little more structure and make it easier for people to find or skip topics based on individual interests. The categories I will cover in future posts are:
