Hell Things to Do

  • Pose Like the Devil

    We didn't see the devil in Hell. Perhaps he was out for the moment - or just wearing one of his many disguises.However, on the viewing platform which overlooks the Hell rock formations there is a cutout picture of the devil where you can insert your own head for a photo. You will find it at the end of a short boardwalk, behind the Hell Post Office....

  • Explore Hell

    Hell, Grand Cayman, derives it's name from a natural area of black, limestone formations, about an acre in size - more or less. The rocks, called "Ironshore," are found in many locations on Grand Cayman. It is said that the largest and most spectacular forms of ironshore are found in Hell. Visitors are not allowed in amongst the rocky formations....

  • Mail a Postcard from Hell

    If you go to Hell you MUST send a postcard to someone with the postmark to prove that you were there. I have a favorite Aunt who lives in Atlanta and has collected postcards all her life. Now Aunt Fay has a postcard from Hell - sent by her loving nephew and his lovely wife.We learned that home mail delivery is not available in the Cayman Islands,...

  • Unusual Rock Formations

    Black brimstone looking rocks are what gave Hell it's name. They are quite lovely to look at but besides take a few pictures and buying a postcard, there isn't a Hell of a lot to do!

  • Visit Hell's Gift Shop

    What's a trip to Hell without visiting Ivan's Gift shop? To the rear, is a field of Hell Stone. Ivan dresses everyday like the Devil, he even has post cards of his travels! Don't be scared to ask him for a pic. This is also the place to send a postcard postmarked from Hell.

  • Post Card from Hell

    Hell is pretty small and you can see it relatively quickly. Basically you can walk around for a short while and snap your photos. But I think the best thing to do is to send your friends/family a postcard that will be from and officially stamped as being from Hell.

  • MY OLD DEVIL

    Hell is well off the beaten path on the northwestern end of Grand Cayman Island. Tour buses go there, or you could take a rental car. Karen and I were with a group of my family members and we hired a taxi/van to take us to Hell.

    If you do decide to rent your own car and drive to Hell, be sure to have a good map, because there are few directional signs on the road to Hell. Also, be advised that they drive on the left side of the road here. And - contrary to conventional wisdom - you don't have to "Drive like Hell" to get there.

    Our driver, Bronson, was a very knowledgeable older gentleman who shared with us many interesting bits of information about the sights we saw along the way. Taxis are easy to find in the downtown area of George Town on Grand Cayman Island.

  • Hell: Been there - done that!

    There are three souvenir/gift shops in Hell, and all of them carry similar items: Most people who come here don't want to leave without at least some small memento or maybe a T-shirt that says "I've been to Hell and Back." We bought postcards - some of which were mailed next door at the Hell Post Office for it's unique postmark. And of course, I...

  • Gifts from Hell.

    As to be expected, Hell's gift shop is full of Hellish items. Shirts, hats, bumper stickers, postcards-- all with either the Devil on them, and/or witty Hell captions such as "Wish you were in Hell."Dumb yet amusing. Definately buy a postcard and have it sent from Hell.

    Hell, as in all of the Cayman Islands, is a very religious place - primarily Christian Protestant. This is evident by the large number of churches you see, and also the fact that most businesses in the Cayman Islands are closed on Sunday.

    One shop owner in Hell takes advantage of his unique name and location by displaying this sign on the side of his gift shop. It reads:

    JESUS DIED FOR ALL OF US SO GIVE HIM YOUR HEART AND GO TO HEAVEN!

  • Dispelling Myths about Hell

    All my life I've heard about Hell. However, after going to Hell and back, I must say that some of the things I'd heard about the place simply are not true.I've always heard that the road to Hell is paved with "good intentions."Actually, the road we took to Hell seemed to be paved with asphalt. I've heard many say that people are "going to Hell in a...

  • Hades is less crowded

    If Hell is full, there is always Hades next door - depending on the time, it can be a little less crowded but you can still have your photo taken with Beelzebub. I miss the warmth that you get when in Hell and the unique scenery.
