There are cabs on the side of the street that are available. They are lined up in front of the Breeze restaurant.
The buses that go to Spot's Bay are at the back of the mall. They have middle men who collects money and hands you tickets. The fare going to Georgetown to Spot's Bay is $5.00.

There are many boat rentals at Grand Cayman Islands. It is best to bargain and share expenses. For us, we shared with other tourists so we can go to the stingray farm. It lessened our expenses. We shared with some tourists from Pennsylvannia.

sThere are no traffic lights that I noticed in the islands but what I observed is that every intesection is a circle. You have to loop around. This is a very smart idea to observe traffic and not wasting electricity. It slows down drivers, too.

The best and easiest way around the island is to rent a car. Pretty much all of the places you will want to go are going to be along 7 Mile Beach. They do drive on the opposite side of the road from the US, but don't worry it is all pretty easy driving. Be sure the buy the insurance though. Someone backed into a car that our family rented.

We rented a car for a day for our trip to Rum Point. Andy's Autos had a location directly across from Comfort Suites, which made it really convenient for us. We rented the cheapest car possible for $50 (included insurance). This was my first time driving on the left hand side of the road....took a few minutes to get comfortable driving this way.

You've heard it before, DRIVE ON THE LEFT!
Not only that, but often the rental cars have right hand steering wheel. It usually takes Jon about three days before he stops washing the windshield when he meant to flip the turn signal!
Auto rentals are relatively inexpensive in Cayman.
We have used several different agencies and can't really complain about any of them. We have used McCurly's; Andy's; Avis (twice); and Island Style.

Most definitely NOT, I say NOT, a cruise. If you do that you won't get the real flavour of the island and you won't be able to visit the other two beautiful, smaller islands. You'll just be herded around like cattle and pushed to do only the 'recommended' activities. You should definitely fly there and plan to spend at least a week. I'd recommend not spending all your time on seven-mile-beach or in Georgetown (which is where the cruiseships land)... Rum Point has nicer water and fewer people and East end has many great restaurants.

Unless you're cruising, you pretty much have to fly there.
You definitely need a car unless you're planning on never leaving your resort. There are plenty of car rentals at the airport. But plan on spending about an hour waiting in line, and processing your paperwork. Don't forget, Caymans drive on the left!

The best access to the islands is from the US, and
numerous carriers fly between Grand Cayman and
Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Houston, Atlanta, Pittsburgh,
Indianapolis and other S cities. Cayman Airways has a few
flights between US cities and Cayman Brac. There are
also flights between George Town and Jamaica on Air
Jamaica. Travelers from Europe have to connect in the US,
There's a departure tax of US$13. Cruise ships regularly
dock at George Town on Grand Cayman and at Creek on
Grand Cayman has a public minibus service, but renting a
car is the best way to explore the island. On the sister
islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, it's virtually the
only form of transport. You can rent from agencies at the
airport or have a car delivered to your hotel. The required
driving permit is available from your rental agency for
US$7.50; you must be at least 21 and carry a valid driver's
license from home. Motorcycles and scooters are also
available on all three islands.
Short of chartering a private boat, the only way to get from
Grand Cayman to the sister islands is by air. Island Air flies
small prop planes to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman in
about half an hour. Cayman Airways flies 737s to Cayman Brac
but doesn't offer a service to Little Cayman. Island Air's
puddle jump between Cayman Brac and Little Cayman takes
about seven minutes - you can see the runway you're approaching
as soon as you take off!
Grand Cayman's Owen Roberts Airport is less than 2 miles south
of George Town, and taxis are plentiful for the trip into town.
Gerrard-Smith Airport is located at the western end of Cayman
Brac. On Little Cayman, Edward Bodden Airfield is located just
west of South Town, on the southwestern coast. Neither of the
smaller islands have an airport taxi service, but hotels will pick
travelers up. There's no ferry service from Grand Cayman to
either of the sister islands, but private boat operators will
shuttle you between Cayman Brac and Little Cayman for about
US$20 (20 minutes).
