We just returned from a cruise that included Grand Cayman as one of the ports of call. In a word, it was AWESOME. The snorkeling was fantastic at Eden Rock, part of the Seven Mile Beach. Don't miss the Stingray Adventure. You will board a boat and travel four miles out to sea. Your boat will anchor on a sandbar ranging in depth from around 3 - 6 feet. Once you enter the warm water, you will be surrounded by stingrays. It is an incredible sight to see these wild creatures all around. Several of the boats offering this tour offer use of snorkeling equipment. Take advantage of it. Shopping was good, but not as inexpensive as other islands in the area. Prices were firm, no bartering. Lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe on the beach was pricey, about $40.00 US for 2 hamburgers and cokes, but very good. Locals were very friendly. However, several people working in shops along the beach, had recently moved to the Caymans. They were not very knowledgeable about the area - could not give directions, ect... So, do your research before you go, and make a plan if you are short on time.

history of these islands in one book but Jenny Palmer`s camera has captured the flavour of the lives of these peaceful and friendly people in an unaffected and unstaged way. This book also gives readers an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the exotic flora and fauna that exists on the islands, including the famous national emblem of Cayman, the turtle.The stunningly clear crystalline waters are rich in marine life including magnificent coral reefs. Cayman is a truly magical place and Jenny Palmer has provided a memento to treasure of a much-loved part of the Caribbean.
