The Turks and Caicos aren't necessarily a shopping mecca like some other Caribbean islands, but in many ways this is a good thing. You're still likely to find a good selection of boutiques - with lots of duty-free goods - minus the crowds that pour into the larger cruise ship ports. Shops selling these luxury items as well as local handicrafts are nearly exclusive to the islands of Providenciales and Grand Turk, and are usually within just a few minutes drive from Turks and Caicos rentals. Guests of Turks and Caicos rentals on Provo can check out duty-free goods at the Ports of Call, Central Square, and Market Place shopping districts on the island. You can hit The Tourist Shoppe for souvenirs and Greensleeves for local crafts in one quick outing to from your Turks and Caicos rentals, then continue along Leeward highway to the IGA Supermarket to stock up on local specialties for your Turks and Caicos rentals. For those wine connoisseurs staying at Turks and Caicos rentals - visit Discount Liquors, which has a nice selection of both fine wines and Caribbean rums.
