  • NO STREET SELLERS !!!

    FANTASTIC! No fake watches, no necklaces, no T-shirts, no Time Share, no beggars (almost). The Cayman Islands prohibits street hassles and the people who hassle by law. Anyone doing so must pay a big fine. They do have Police patrolling around the small islands and anyone bothering a Tourist would be easy to spot. You will only see people,...

  • R&R (Rum and Relaxation)

    Relax... the locals are very easy-going and extremely nice. Some times things are a little slow due to this mentality, but hey, you’re on 'Island Time.' Just grab a drink, find a hammock, and all will be good with the world.

    We were told that if you aren't Caymanian, you could not have kids while you live there. Also that if you're living there and you want to get married, you have to marry a Caymanian, and you still can't have kids. That sure is one way to controll the population explosion!

    We were on the island on November 8, 2000 when the island held their election. Almost everything on the island was shut down that day and alcohol cannot be served until all votes have been counted. The island was also shut down until 7pm the following night.

    Driving is on the left side of the road. The car that we rented also had the steering wheel on the right side of the car, along with having the controls all moved to opposite sides than I am used to. It took about a day to get used to since driving in America is totally different.

    The food prices are very high in the Caymans. This is commented by both the tourists and the natives. Remember to look to see if the menu prices are in US $ or Cayman $. Normally they are in Cayman $ and that raises the price by another 20% (I think).
