travelling with teenagers

I am planning a trip to Turks and Caicos in January with my teenagers (13year old boy and15year old girl). I am looking for recommendations on everything: best island, beach, hotel/resort. Any advice is appreciated.

Most visitors to TCI will stay on the island of Providenciales. If that's your choice your best option for beach is Grace Bay beach. There are many different price points for the resorts, so perhaps a budget will allow folks to give you ideas on resorts within your price range. When you say January are you talking next month or a year down the road?

This is peak season, a lot is taken already. Best is hard to answer unless budget is unlimited. So budget would help us help you.

Also, does budget include air? Food?

There's not a bad place to stay really, just different personalities.

And to help you further, tell us more:

Do you mind renting a car

Do you want to relax/de-stress, or need more?

Do you need a water park and tons of activities or more family bonding?

Do you need shops, are you foodies or would rather cook?

Resort that's self-catering, many amenities or villa?

Oceanfront, ocean view or garden view rooms?

Is air easy to get last minute?

Do your kids love exploring?

First see how much air tickets will cost and the availability of seats left? Second, place to stay on Provo? At this point you will not be able to get budget rates at this conjuncture. DR. JIM

Get them their own underwater disposable cameras for snorkeling photos...

Bring night time activities - games, electronic or otherwise, books to read, DVDs if your accommodation has a player... Have Fun!
