Trip Report A mini-trip report of Turks and Caicos after Ike and Hanna, with pictures!

Jump to last reply

I went down with another Fodors contributor,kristen1206,(lucky her!) it was a working vacation, as I wanted to see how it looked after the 1-2 punch of Hurricanes Hanna and Ike. I'm happy to report, other than palm trees looking a little tattered, you'd never know Hanna as a cat 1 passed 3 times, and Ike as a Cat 4 passed! The beaches are as turquoise as ever, although on first impressions looks crystal clear (better than some islands not hit by hurricanes!) for snorkeling it still needs to reach the typical T&C status. Some areas gained beachfront, the areas that didn't already seem to be bouncing back. The resorts look great, the restaurants are in full swing. It was quiet season, combined with after hurricanes, we had the whole beach to ourselves. We explored, and if we didn't know about the hurricanes, there was very few random signs of it. There are probably deals to be had-so go now before the prices can go up-take advantage-the beach is gorgeous!! the weather was fantastic, sunny sunny sunny.
