Hi everyone. I've been lurking on this board for months now. You are all such a huge help and carry a wealth of knowledge regarding T&C. I thought I would post some questions in preparation for our first trip to Provo. We will be flying out of Miami on June 26th and staying on T&C thru July 4th.
CONDO: First off, we are staying at Villa Del Mar in a 2 bedroom condo for the 8 nights. I'm hoping this was a good decision considering their pricing. It was hard to pass up some great rates. I'm aware that there is a 1 minute walk to the beach. Is there anything else we should know about our stay there? How is the internet access? Is there a restaurant or bar on site at all?
EXCURSIONS: We are traveling with our two children. (ages 11 and 7) Are there any boating excursions or trips we should do with them while there? Anything you can think of that we'd miss out on if we didn't do it while visiting the island?
PROVO PONIES: Our 7 year old daughter rides horses. We'd love to book the provo pony tour however I am expecting again with our third child. Do these horses get crazy or go too fast for a pregnant woman or is is a pretty calm ride? How long is the tour itself?
PHOTOGRAPHY: I'm a photographer and can't wait to get there and capture all the island has to offer. Is there anything I MUST see and photograph while there? Any really beautiful beaches, spots, architecture, etc. that stand out in your mind? I know there are several other beaches other than Grace Bay but I didn't know which ones were worth visiting in regards to photography.
RESTAURANTS: We plan to buy groceries for our breakfast and lunches on most days beings that our condo is said to have a full kitchen. However, what are some good casual as well as more pricey places that we can take our children into for dinner? Our daughter has special needs so we need places that are forgiving when it comes to her. Any places that are cheap and inexpensive for a family of four would be great to know about too in case we just need to wing it on some nights.
WEATHER: What is the weather like during the end of June/first of July. Rain usual at this time or not?
AIRPORT & TAXI'S: Is there anything we should watch out for regarding the T&C airport or the taxi options when coming and going from there? What is pricing like for a Taxi to and from Villa Del Mar? How far is VDM from airport?
Thanks so much in advance for all of your help. I realize there are a lot of questions here so I appreciate any of you willing to respond and give your two cents. When traveling with a special needs child it is very important to be prepared for anything and everything. I thought I would try to cover it all in one post.
I'll be sure to post a full report on our visit once we return as well as some beautiful photos should I be able to capture anything when there.
