FE has indicated that this thread is about Turks and Caicos Islands

Hello Everybody
My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon for next June. We are looking into Turks and Caicos Islands - has anyone ever been there in June?
We are also hoping to combine the trip with somewhere in the United States. We were looking into doing Miami - Turk and Caicos but I have since heard that Miami in June is perhaps not the best option so we are now looking at the West Coast.

Any suggestions? We are travelling from Ireland and are after a luxury trip of a lifetime!

Thanks!

I'm afraid you came to the wrong website if you're looking for luxury trips... most people here are backpackers.

cheers, Niels

Hi Niamh!!

Contrary to the above comment, you have come to the right website for getting the information you are requesting. Though TP has many backpackering members, we also have lots of people who like to travel in the lap of luxury - Beerman and I included. This forum also get quite a few questions about hotels, all-inclusives, honeymooning in the tropics, etc.

I'm afraid I have not been to Turks & Caicos (but would love to go - the diving is suppose to be wonderful). We do have two members living there who may be able to help you and one travel helper. The travel helper is: Charlotte Moghal - "flying". I recommend sending Charlotte a PM also and see what information she can offfer.
Look here for the T&C members: T&C Members

What have you heard about Miami in June? I am curious why you feel it's not the best option. It may not be for what you plan to do - but if you could tell me a little of why, I may have alternative choices still in Florida. Thanks!

Good luck with planning your trip and enjoy the adventure. If I can be of more help, please let me know. ;)

I hope it's not a crime if you sometimes like travelling a little bit more up market. I like to stay at midrange places for example but sometimes luxury is nice as well.
I know some backpackers think of that as strange, but what I found even more strange is that backpackers pay up to a 1000 dollar for a plane ticket, and then start bargaining about 1 dollar for a room or so.

So I hope travelling to all destinations and with different budgets is allowed;)
Although I would be very pleased if someone could tell me a cheap backpacking way to go to the south pole area...;)

How strange that I never noticed them. I've been around for a while now, and my impression is that the bulk of TP members aren't luxury travellers. Which does not mean of course that they wouldn't be welcome; only that they are less likely to find the help they're looking for :)

Also, Charlotte's most recent user data goes back more than a year, so I very much doubt her activeness as a TP member... but maybe she'll answer your request for help, you never know.

This thread is about Turks and Caicos information and a honeymoon. Let's keep it on track before it goes completely off topic and of no help. Niamh has also been sent additional contacts who may be able to answer her questions. Thank you.
