Then it’s chillin in the islands…

LIVE from the Turks & Caicos and “Bajacu” a luxury villa on the island of Providenciales.  My brother Brian; co-founder of The Good Life back in 1988 will be with me along with Charlotte Hackett from Above and Beyond Travel.  We will be telling you all about not only this great vacation getaway, but discussing the top-10 Caribbean Island destinations to add to your bucket list for 2014.

Bajacu (rising sun in the language of Caribbean natives) is located on the beautiful island of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. The home was designed by Marco Aldaco, the world famous Mexican architect, who has been featured on numerous occasions in Architectural Digest as well as other publications and art books. Bajacu itself has also been features in many books and publications around the world. It is situated on a south shore hilltop with a breathtaking 270 degree view of the sea and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. A natural stone path provides direct access from the villa to a beautiful and romtantic platform by the sea.

Bajacu is for the privileged few who demand only the best. This unique retreat offers uncompromising romance, luxury, beauty and serenity.

The beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands are situated 575 miles southeast of Miami and 90 miles north of the Dominican Republic. Covering 193 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, the Turks and Caicos Islands are today one of the most sought after Caribbean destination.

The Turks and Caicos are a small archipelago of eight major islands and more than 40 inhabited keys. They are surrounded by 230 miles of pristine white sandy beaches and have the third largest coral reef system in the world, making it a premier beach, diving and snorkeling destination.

Divers were the first to explore these islands as the long barrier reef protecting the islands is home to a colorful wildlife and magnificent coral formation. The Turks and Caicos host some of the best dive sites one can find, making these islands among the world’s top 10 diving spots.  The islands are relatively flat and covered by dense vegetation and sandy dunes.
