Last week, we spent the most beautiful week in the Caribbean. It was a truly dreamy little escape from life. The Cayman Islands are absolutely beautiful, I’d like to tell you about my trip, and hopefully inspire you to visit this beautiful country. They say #CaymanKind, and they mean that the people of the islands are welcoming; I found this to be very true.
During the evening, we did what everyone should do in Grand Cayman – watched the gorgeous sunset over Seven Mile Beach. My mission is to see first-hand why the Cayman Islands are regarded as the world’s friendliest islands and one of the best destinations for family travel. We’re guests of the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.
Diving into the planning process revealed much more than crystal clear blue water. Things to do in Grand Cayman include bucket list experiences for us from riding swimming ponies bareback to kayaking bioluminescent bays. And, that’s just the beginning as our itinerary will reveal.
We flew from Houston to Miami, I found tickets for 60. I found a great set of flights on Southwest Airlines that departs Fort Lauderdale for $71 dollars! it does take a full day to get to the Caribbean from the West Coast but it’s always so worth it. We fly back to Houston via American Airlines, which was 200 dollars! The hotel was nice and offered free Breakfast. We saved over 400.00 dollars with this trip.
We also spent the day at Cayman Turtle Farm. It a must stop, when you visit. It’s an internationally renowned research and conservation centre for sea turtles that also provides up-close experiences for guests. I read they’ve bred and released over 31,000 turtles to date. We’ll take a tour and snorkel with the turtles.
Our hotel, offered discounts to the local restaurants! The Cayman Islands are one of the most picturesque locations in the Caribbean, popular with vacationers and cruise-goers alike.
In other words, visiting Grand Cayman is a truly relaxed vacation, and not our normal style of go-go-go travel! Cayman seems dissimilar to other places we’ve visited in the Caribbean. Grand Cayman is safer and its cities are better-developed, for starters. While over 2 million people visit the Cayman Islands each year, it feels less touristy than other Caribbean islands. There’s much more to Grand Cayman than the tourist side, and even the areas of heavy development don’t have that vibe to them.
One thing that strikes me about Grand Cayman is its diversity: expats slightly outnumber native Caymanians. This is true even in the tourism sector, and it a point that’s illustrated by Rum Point. There, a sign post shares the origin of the staff and crew at the businesses, and a dozen or so countries are represented, including locations in Europe and Australia. This seems to be the rule, rather than the exception, elsewhere in Grand Cayman, too.
