The Grand Cayman Islands is located in the Caribbean. Disability access is very limited with lots of the stores and restaurants up in the air with curb cuts not in place. Visiting the Grand Cayman Islands can range from a day in the port to a couple of days to visit.

Just 22 miles long and eight miles at its widest point and yet the largest of the three Cayman Islands is the world's fifth largest financial centre after London, New York, Tokyo and Zurich. It's described by one commentator as "a sunny place for shady people. How much of this is seriously dodgy vs. exploitation of loopholes which assure its status as a tax haven remains to be seen. Most of the tourist places - which cater for a monied clientele - are clustered around Seven Mile Beach.

We chartered a boat to go snorkeling instead of joining an excursion and it was awesome! Our captain took us to a great place where you can either go snorkeling or diving. It was a great experience.

We went on a bus tour around Grand Cayman after getting off of our cruise ship for this stop. The weather was really nice and hot in February so it was a nice change from the winter in the Carolinas, where we live. Interestingly, there wasn't a port we could get off of so we had to get on a small boat from our ship to get on the island. It really made me feel like I'm in a James Bond movie! Coincidently, this island is also a British colony! I suggest going to the turtle farm when you are here. You get to hold the turtles! You'll see hotel names and fast food franchises that you'll recognize here like Burger King and Hiltons so you don't feel like you're entirely in foreign territory. Everything is really expensive to buy!

Grand Cayman offer plenty of options, depending on how busy and how wet your family wants to be for the day. Swim, touch and even kiss a stingray in the clear water of Grand Cayman’s Stingray City sandbar. Home to a breeding pond, turtle hatchery and education center families learn about turtles while having holding and swimming with them at the Cayman Turtle Farm. If you just want to hang out at the beach you can do that too. Seven Mile beach is busy and has all the toys and amenities you can think of. If quiet if what you want, venture further out and you can have a stretch of sand to yourself.

Hmmm, idk. I went to see the dolphins & turtles and that was ok but the people were a little rude-ish. Once in the actual town though the people were like full blown rude... and there was like no bathroom anywhere!!!! Everything seemed to be pretty clean and the post office was beautiful!!

Went on a Royal Caribbean cruise, absolutely recommended for those who are looking for adventure and shopping.
7 Mile beach is a terrific place to lay down all day along with the stingrays (this boys won't hurt anybody!) Also you can find very good deals on some ivy brands (Cartier, Mont Blanc, etc.) and diamonds from "Diamond International"
