The Cayman Islands. I think this was my favorite stop during the trip. We arrived in Georgetown and when we docked, I did not know what to expect. I didn’t really know anything about the Cayman Islands until that day. Before this, the Cayman Islands was just the location for an offshore bank account in a crime movie or an episode of American Greed. I didn’t know that people actually went there. But I was pleasantly surprised.
How do I sum up this small little island? The locals are animated and friendly. They drive on the right side of the car and on the left hand side of the road. There are a LOT of roundabouts. They don’t like stupid questions but they have a good sense of humor. Seven Mile Beach is actually only six miles long. They have their own currency. “Tortuga” is the Spanish name for Grand Cayman. They make the most amazing Jerk Chicken. And they like their rum.
We rented a car and drove around the island which was surprisingly easier than we thought [I actually can’t say much, because I wasn’t the one driving. I was too busy taking pictures and reading the map]. We were trying to find Stingray City, got lost, and ended up driving almost around the entire island. It was a good “lost” though. We made it up to Rum Point, the northern tip of the island. The rest of the day was spent exploring, beach hopping, eating incredible food, and I found a supermarket that shares my sister’s unique name. I loved everything about that island.
A day spent in Grand Cayman. Two down, one more to go.
