The name Caicos is derived from the Taino people’s, the first inhabitants who migrated around 700AD, term "Cayo Hico," literally “island chain". As the name implies, there are two island groups: the Turks Islands of Grand Turk and Salt Cay to the east, and the larger Caicos Islands group of Providenciales, North Caicos, Middle Caicos, East Caicos, South Caicos and West Caicos to the west. The history of the islands is a fascinating one, from the buccaneers in the 1600s and 1700s, to the surge in development in the 1960's which brought the first automobiles and tourists.
