About Kerry And Byron

Hi! We're Kerry and Byron, beach addicts, entrepreneurs and the founders of Corks and Tacos.

For as long as we can remember, we’ve been passionate about one thing. Escaping our cold Canadian winters as often as possible.

Even before our paths crossed, we both had a serious love for travel. When we met, we quickly discovered our shared passion for one specific kind of travel – escaping the cold for tropical beaches. 

Since getting married in Vegas (it was epic!) in 2011, we've been on countless adventures together throughout the Caribbean and Tropical Atlantic.

Our travels have taught us more than just the thrill of new places. Travel isn't just about the places you go. It's about the life it brings you. For us, it's been about finding that perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, all while immersing ourselves in the unique lifestyle each beautiful destination has to offer.

However, of the many tropical islands we’ve had the joy of visiting, one archipelago in particular has captured our hearts.

The “Beautiful By Nature, Turks and Caicos Islands.”

And that's what we're here to share with you – the best of our Turks and Caicos travels, the hidden gems we've found, and how to make the most out of your tropical escape.

Our Turks And Caicos Discovery

Byron and I stumbled upon Turks and Caicos while thumbing through an in flight magazine. We were en route home from another travel adventure when we came upon a photo with the most magical turquoise water.

Our jaws literally dropped! I pointed to the picture and said to Byron, “this is where we’re going next!” No sooner were we home and googling all things Turks and Caicos! 

We had never even heard of Turks and Caicos before this, but we sure made up for our lack of knowledge with hours of research and daydreaming till we were ready to get on the flight for our first trip.

That was many years ago and well, it’s safe to say we’ve been spoiled to go anywhere else ever since. 

When you see that turquoise water for the first time, nothing prepares you for how breathtaking it is and the impact it will have on you. 

And that's how our love affair with Turks and Caicos began – a chance encounter leading to a lifelong passion.

Our Experience

Why Trust Corks And Tacos?

Having visited Turks and Caicos countless times since 2014, we understand the challenges of planning a trip to this beautiful destination.

We’ve made it our mission to learn as much, do as much, eat as much, drink as much (for research, we swear!) and mingle as much as we possibly can on every trip.  We’ve met some of the most amazing people along the way, many who we now proudly call our Island Family.

Each visit we immerse ourselves in community events, fundraisers and donate whenever possible. Rescue organizations like Provo Ponies and Potcake Place K9 Rescue. Along with charities and non profits such as The Orchard TCI are top of our list when it comes to planning our trips.

We’ve learnt an invaluable amount of information from The Turks and Caicos Reef Fund. From being giddy Canadians excited to jump in the water to now knowing which sun screens to pack and how we can do our part to keep the incredible waters of Turks and Caicos pristine and protected. Don’t get us started on people taking starfish out of the water for pictures.

Our trips to Turks and Caicos have taught us the importance of traveling with respect and mindfulness. 

At Corks and Tacos, we're not just excited to share our wealth of knowledge and help you plan your perfect trip, we're equally dedicated to doing so in a way that honors the islands, their people, the local businesses and the environment.

We believe in creating travel experiences that are not only unforgettable for our readers but also beneficial and respectful to the local community and natural beauty of Turks and Caicos.

It's about striking a balance – celebrating and exploring this magnificent destination while contributing positively to its preservation.
