Travel to Cayman Islands

Found in the western Caribbean, the Cayman Islands are just south of Cuba and east of Mexico.  It is often thought of as a place of wealth, but there are numerous attractions that draw visitors to the shores of this beautiful location.

Your journey here begins on Grand Cayman Island, where Seven Mile Beach stretches along the sea. White-sand beaches meet emerald waters, with the backdrop of world-class resorts supporting your every want. Bake in the sun, have a favorite cocktail, and enjoy moments of quiet as the waves gently come in.

The marine life around the Cayman Islands is stunning and all 3 islands provide snorkeling and diving opportunities. Be sure to ask about a location where you can swim with stingrays, such as Stingray City. There are two shipwrecks off the shores of Cayman Brac that are worth exploring, along with many more off Grand Cayman.

During your stay, you’ll want to take some time to explore Hell. How the area got its name is up for debate, but the unique beauty of the area cannot be denied. With stunning black limestone formations, it is a view that is quite rare in the world. Additional attractions include the Observation Tower on Grand Cayman, East End lighthouse, and the Cayman turtle farm.

Staying in the Cayman Islands can be a 5-star experience. You can explore or you can find a spot on the beach – whatever suits your mood best. That is why this Caribbean destination is always a top choice for a tropical getaway.

In the summer months, May-Oct, the temperature during the day ranges from 85-90 degrees and 73-85 degrees by night. Also, most people don’t realize just how close to the equator that these islands lay and that means that the sun is HOT. The islands are cooled by the prevailing trade winds but don’t let this fool you, take the sun in small doses and always wear lots of sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. Given the beautiful Cayman Islands weather, do be aware that it does occasionally rain there! You might want an umbrella just in case. The rainy season starts in May and ends in October with the 2 rainiest months being May and October. March and April are usually the driest.
