As busy businessmen mingle with reggae musicians and Bermuda-clad tourists, the streets of Cayman Islands come alive with color and character. Indeed, three days is perhaps too short a vacation here, but a planned approach can ensure that you make the most of it.
Day 1: Get Introduced
Begin with the Grand Cayman tour to experience all that Cayman Islands have to offer. Starting in the capital of Georgetown you’ll be guided down the beautiful south coast for a Cayman style lunch. This six hour tour has something for everyone. You will visit Conch Shell House (a house constructed entirely of conch shells) Cayman Turtle Farm and shipwrecks, and sample tasty delights at the world famous Tortuga Rum Shoppe. Next, soak up some sun at one of the world’s best beaches: Seven Mile Beach. Alternatively, try the Cayman West Bay Highlight and Shopping Tour.
Day 2: Sail Away
Begin your morning on the seas with the Grand Cayman Stingray City Lunch Sail. Enjoy the refreshing sea breeze aboard a luxurious 65 foot catamaran as you sail to Stingray City. With two snorkel stops along the way, get engrossed in the stunning beauty of the Cayman’s unspoiled coral reefs and friendly marine life. Play with some of the ocean’s friendliest stingrays before enjoying a mouth-watering deli style lunch. Finish your day lounging on Seven Mile Beach where you can treat your taste buds to the delectable fish tacos at the Sunshine Grill.
Day 3: Away From the Hustle and Bustle
The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park tour lets you escape the crowds of tourists to the charming colonial Bodden Town. Keep an eye out for the Cayman Blue Iguana as you enjoy a stroll through the park that is also adorned with historical offerings such as the heritage garden and a circa 1900 Caymanian house. If you’re visiting in March, don’t miss the park’s famous annual orchid show. Get in touch with your inner child on the Swim with the Dolphins Adventure Tour. Finally, dive beneath the pristine turquoise waters of the Cayman Islands and immerse yourself in the marvels of the ocean on the Atlantis Submarine Expedition.
