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.
The three islands comprising the Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman ... more
Brac) support 415 native taxa in a land area little over 260 square kilometers, 29 of which are uniquely Caymanian. This full colour Flora of the Cayman Islands by George R. Proctor is a total revision of his first edition. While still being a classic flora, 250 line illustrations and over 400 colour photographs illustrate the majority of species most likely to be encountered. Thus, it satisfies the needs of the professional botanist, while providing the non-expert and eco-traveler with an accessible, informative field guide.
