With the normally cold and wet winter that’s coming in just a few months, now is the time to start looking at an escape to the Caribbean. There were some islands hit pretty hard by the hurricane season and those should probably be avoided, but the Cayman Islands came through just fine and the weather is always nice during the cold winter months up north.
What To Look For In A Cayman Island Vacation
One great way to decide on an itinerary for your vacation is to do a search like, “Fun things to do in Grand Cayman” and pick several of the articles and read them. If it sounds like an activity that would interest you then do a search on one of the travel sites for that business or activity. People are usually pretty honest when writing their reviews and they also give great tips. Like if you’re going snorkeling, be sure and rent from this business and take a certain excursion trip for best results.
And any review of Cayman Islands Vacations will have a visit to the dolphin petting park where you can swim and play with these wonderful animals. Plus, the Stingray Park is nearby and that’s a must-do activity as well. Feeding, petting, and swimming with the stingrays is something you’ll never forget. If you can, rent or buy an underwater camera you’ll thank yourself a hundred times when you show off photos of dolphins and stingrays.
Although they aren’t known for their shopping, the Caymans have great shopping centers that are very popular with the tourists. The island clothing they have is much better looking and more realistic than what you’ll find in the US or elsewhere. And the food is also fantastic with a blend of Caribbean flavors mixed with Mexican and Cuban cuisine. There are also plenty of fine dining restaurants in all of the larger cities that will rival those in Europe or North America.
The real number one activity that people do in the Cayman Islands is relax. They are the safest Caribbean destination there is, everyone speaks English naturally, and the sun shines nearly every single day all throughout the winter.
Of Course, any review of Cayman Islands vacations would be complete without a recommendation to try kitesurfing or kayaking, those two watersports are quite popular and entire areas are designated for them. These great islands aren’t as packed with tourists as the rest of the Caribbean yet have some or the best beaches, bars, hotels, and restaurants on earth.
