I just got back from an amazing and much needed vacation at Club Med’s resort Turkoise in the Turks & Caicos islands. This was a bucket list item to take a vacation by myself. I also knocked off the scuba diving challenge as well. I chose Turkoise based on a recommendation from a colleague and booked it rather impulsively with out much research so I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. I had use-it-or-lose-it vacation and had to take it between projects so I needed a place that I could travel to by myself and still have a good time. When I read that Turkoise was an 18+ resort that catered to solo travelers and friends groups, I was hooked.
I honestly didn’t know much about Club Med prior to the trip. I expected to get some guff from my friends when I mentioned the resort, but got little. In my mind Club Med was a dated chain of resorts that was all the rage for the twenty-some baby boomers in the 80’s and was still primarily occupied by those baby boomers today. I couldn’t have been more wrong! There was a large variety of age groups, and I had no problem finding some fun young travelers to hang out with.
