If you’re looking for a sunny summer getaway, the Cayman Islands are a great choice. With beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters and plenty of activities for the whole family, you’ll be sure to have a memorable vacation. Here are some tips to help you plan your trip:
- Choose your accommodation carefully. Make sure you visit the hotel’s website to ensure that the location is in an area that fits your needs. Sometimes, it is best to book a hotel a few meters away from the beach if it offers better amenities and services than other hotels that may appear better located at first sight.
- Check if your hotel offers free transportation to and from the airport. If you’re renting a car, it’s recommended to verify that your insurance company covers your rental vehicle while in the Cayman Islands. Some credit cards also offer rental card insurance under certain terms and conditions.
- If you’re traveling with little children and you need a babysitter, ask your hotel concierge for references. Be sure to interview the sitter in person and check their references carefully. A lot of local resorts offer some type of “kids club” or recreation center for the little ones.
- No matter how you’re traveling to the Cayman Islands, be sure to pack lightly. The climate is warm and humid year-round, so you’ll only need light clothing. Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit, sunscreen and a hat!
- Once you’re on the island, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. Visit one of the many family-friendly attractions, such as the Cayman Turtle Farm or take a glass bottom boat tour. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, try snorkeling. Stingray City or scuba diving.
- The Cayman Islands are also a great place to enjoy the outdoors. Spend a day lounging on the beach or take a hike through one of the island’s nature trails. You might even spot some of the island’s native wildlife, such as iguanas or parrots.
- When it comes to dining, there are plenty of options for families. There are several casual restaurants that offer kid-friendly menus and many hotels have family-friendly amenities like poolside snacks and buffet dining.
- Ask the hotel concierge for local events taking place during your visit. Concerts, exhibits, art shows, and sporting events are very common year round. Most of the websites also include some type of “Calendar of Events” so you can plan ahead of time what events you would like to attend during your stay.
- If you like shopping, Grand Cayman offers duty-free shopping for luxury brands as well as local arts and crafts. Many of the stores offer family discounts or special sales during certain times of the year.
- Beach days are a must when visiting the Cayman Islands! Seven Mile Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the island and offers plenty of activities for families. There are several restaurants, bars, and cafes along the beach. You can also find parasailing, jet skiing, and banana boat rides. If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, Smathers Beach is a great option. This beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and picnicking.
