Things to know:
Everyone is on island time. Don’t expect your dinner reservation to mean that your table will be ready right when you show up or any posted store hours to be set in stone.
TCI does not have a way to recycle waste, so minimize your plastics and bring empty bottles back with you to recycle at home.
Most goods are imported so prices are high. Consider saving money by bringing our own toiletries and sunscreen in a checked bag.
TCI is a casual place. Leave the stilettos at home.
