Getting to Your Hotel and Vela Turks and Caicos ... and back.

Once outside the terminal, there will be an obvious line queued up for taxis. Depending on which hotel you have reserved you likely have between a 5-15 minute drive. Some guests may choose to rent a car and this adds an extra level of convenience throughout your stay. Vela Turks and Caicos is located at a Marina on the far Eastside of town, at most 15 minutes from any hotel on Grace Bay and only 5 minutes from the guest-house villas on Long Bay. Students with lessons will be able to drive to one of two main launch sites, as determined by your instructor once you arrive.
