The Turks and Caicos are as elegant and laid back as a tropical Caribbean island can be. We love to enjoy the soft sand, warm waters and tropical surroundings as part of daily life here. But there are times when things get kicked up a notch, and Cinqo De Mayo is one of those times
There is always some sort of celebration going on in Turks and Caicos, be it a cultural or sporting event, so it makes it easy for vacationers who would like to attend an event or festival during their stay to do so.
While the main celebration every year occurs at Turtle Cove in Providenciales, all Islanders celebrate this day of Mexican heritage with music, Mexican food, cervesa, and tequila!
Cinco de Mayo marks the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla (“Batalla de Puebla”) on the 5th of May (“Cinco de Mayo”), 1862. The date is observed as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, it’s also a sentiment shared by all of Latin America.
Tuesday is a work day, so things will wrap up early enough to head back to Bohio and have a restful sleep before heading out snorkeling or diving the next morning. But we’ll understand if you want to sleep in; and coffee is always on.
