Only a few other tourist destinations can match the kind of joy and relaxation that a trip to the Grand Cayman Islands can bring. After the holidays, we need another dose of happiness to kick off the year right. If you’re looking for a first (or second) holiday getaway, look no further than the Cayman Islands. If you’re thirsty for nature sightings, hiking and adventure, it’s time to prepare the whole family for the Grand Cayman experience.

Sting Ray City Grand Cayman

One of the most interesting tours in this tourist-rich region is Stingray City. Stingray City is located in North Sound; it’s a sandbar where guests can interact and even feed Atlantic stingrays with the aid of aquatic safety instructors. You can even hold the stingrays if you are up for it. People who have visited Stingray City swear by it up and down, that it’s safe if you know how to follow the instructions of the safety officer and most of all – unique and fun. There are several ways to enjoy this tourist attraction. You can go snorkeling (so you can also explore the sandbar itself) or if you don’t want to get wet, you can just ride a glass-bottom boat to see the massive Atlantic stingrays below while remaining dry and warm.

And of course – the glorious waters. Your visit to the Grand Cayman Islands wouldn’t be complete without visiting Seven Mile Beach, a wondrous testament to nature because of how well it has been preserved throughout the years. What makes this particular beach special, apart from the great view that it offers of the surrounding waters, is the soft coral sand that that is heavenly to walk onto. Not all sand is equal and your experience of any beach is certainly affected by the type of sand it has. Just keep that in mind especially if you want the whole family to enjoy frolicking on the beach. Special tours are available if you want to a more guided experience, and prices range from $20 to $85.

After time at the water and the beach, you may be wondering if you can get a dose of nature in this place. Yes, you can! The Mastic Trail at Grand Cayman Islands is well-known because of the lush, natural vegetation of the mangrove swamp and the variety of botanical life that you will be able to see during a guided tour. Tour services are available daily even during holidays so if you’re coming in this January you can rest assured that there will be slots available for everyone in the family.
