I stayed at an owners unit which included a very nice white chevy tracker SUV, included in the price of the rental. The owner is well versed on just about anything on the island. He is a pleasure to work with.
He (Joe) helped us with everything, this was our first time on Providenciales, Turks & Caicos.
His unit is listed on VROB and HomeAway/includes free use of his SUV.
Best snorkeling on the island right at the beach, fishing is great also.

A team of veteran travel writers, Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince have produced various titles for Frommer's including guides to Italy, France, Spain, England, and Germany.
