You absolutely cannot return home without taking some Cayman Sea Salt with you! Away from the British empire, this archipelago of islands is ninety miles south of Cuba. Any tourist who loves diving will enjoy the crystal clear beaches here. 

English is the official language and Christianity is the predominant religion. Here, they use electric sockets of types A and B. The standard voltage is 120V. So, you don’t need to bring an adapter, if you are coming from the USA

The official currency is Cayman Islands Dollar. It is tied to US Dollar at a fixed rate of CI$1 = US$1.2. However, in banks, the exchange rate may be a little different. Also, US Dollars circulate freely, so there may be no need to exchange them. Major international credit cards are easily acceptable. Also, ATMs are available widely. 

Grand Cayman is the main island, as well as the favorite island among tourists. Also, George Town is the capital city of the islands. The other two islands include Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. The vibrant Caribbean beaches include Seven Mile Beach, which is very popular amongst tourists. Boatswain’s Beach is another option for those who want to do something other than sunbathing.

These islands are not home to standard beach towns. However, they aim at the luxurious class of tourists. You will be astonished to know that these tiny islands have a very high standard of living compared to the rest of the world. Winter is an appropriate time to visit. The weather is dry, warm, and conducive for the beach holiday you want.

La Casa Del Habano is an over the top restaurant where you can collect incredible and expensive cigars. Divers can head to Stingray city, where you can hang out with the moody stingrays. Historical sites include the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and Pedro St. James Castle. If it suits you, you can explore the history of these opulent Caribbean beaches.

Getting Around

The islands cater to mostly North American Tourists. Owen Roberts International Airport offers just an hour flight from Miami, Florida. If you want, you can take a cruise ship to the islands. Taxis are mostly reliable. However, it is still better to ask your hotel receptionist to arrange the cab for you, if you stay at a hotel.

When it comes to getting around, cars, scooters, and moped rentals are good choices. You can drive here if you are 21 years of age, but you will need a temporary driving license. Roads are of reasonable quality, but you should beware of potholes on smaller roads. Everywhere is accessible by car. However, cars drive on the left side of the road here.
