With its perfect beaches, enviable luxury properties and exquisite cafes, it is no wonder that the Caymans regularly claim that their island is the most suitable for living in the world. Add to the mix a first-class food scene and a growing list of adventures, excursions and cultural attractions on its doorstep, and you might just agree with them. We will give you many reasons to visit the beaches with rain or shine with our useful guide for needs
Turn on the pipe
It’s so hellishly hot that almost everyone drives and the rules of engagement are to be heard about everything. From saying “morning!” To “move yourself!” you will hear percussion with horns wherever you go. It is also common for local buses to beep to check if you need to travel.
Occupying a country
The Grand Cayman is roughly divided into two parts. To the west is the place for those looking for Seven Mile Beach and a more cosmopolitan atmosphere. The East, though not so polished, compensates for it with island charm.
Here’s a tip
Whether you’re saying thank you for your Mudslide or trying to join this new club, don’t worry about your money – it’s common to tip and that’s what keeps the service running at the beginning of the game.
Take a walk on the wild side
The caiman is alive with all kinds of flora and fauna. Forget the clichés about dangerous things – there are no poisonous spiders here. So get off the beaten path and explore the wild side of the Cayman.
Hot under the collar
It’s either hot or really hot, so the shorts are practically the same, although much of the business community still wears suits. This means that the average temperature of 77 degrees during the cooler months (December – April) means that you may need an evening jacket for these formal occasions.
Late night tales
Cayman is more of a morning island than a night island. There is no entry to bars and clubs after midnight on Saturdays and there are usually no drinks served after 3am. That said, there is a very growing scene of cocktails and pool parties.
Cayman is a very safe island, but if you still find yourself in a pickle, here are some useful numbers: Emergency services: 911; Country Code: 345; International access code: +1; George Town Hospital: +1 345 949 8600; Kirk Pharmacy: +1 345 949 7180 (closed on Sundays)
Cycling is growing as a good way to get around, even if you keep your mind to yourself! Indicate your direction by extending your hand and keep in mind that moving to the right takes precedence. Helmets are optional, but the lights at night are. Bicycles are usually offered by local hotels and apartments.
Getting to know
From island jeeps to personalized convertibles, renting a car is the best way to get around the island and a number of reputable local and international car rental companies will help you there.
