    Fly, unless you are a really good swimmer.
    Rent a car. DEMAND a right side drivers seat. Half the cars are right and half are left. Since this is a British territory they drive on the left side of the road and you really need the steering wheel on the right side of the car. Make sure that is what you have reserved before you go.

    We took a non-stop flight on Continental Airlines from Newark NJ. Four hours later we arrived in Grand Cayman with no incidents. I love non-stop flights!
    Since we were a group of seven, we rented two cars from Budget rental car. They gave us two very new and clean Hyundais. We quickly learned how to drive on the left after a few fits and starts. The toughest thing is trying to avoid turning on the windshield wipers when making turns. You also learn to tune out your passengers screams of 'Left! Stay Left!' The cars turned out to be a real blessing. We went touring all over the place and it definatly made going out to dinner and everything easier. Split among our group the cost was negligible; about $80 per person.

    by Tdolphin Updated Aug 25, 2002

    I really enjoyed the cruise, though sometimes they can be expensive...you have to look hard for deals..in 1998, the cruise i went on cost about $500...it took you to Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Cozumel
    i suggest a tour bus...i didn't try to rent a car, so do not know how hard it is...the Caymans are a very rich set of islands and things are pricy...tour buses take you all over the island for a decent price...you have to take a tour to see the stingrays, i believe

    Traveling to and from the airport is very easy. The airport is really close. A cab ride to accomodations on 7 mile beach will cost, on average,$15 US.
    Cabs (very convenient) are fairly expensive while the bus (very cheap) is only $1.25 or $1.50 I can’t remember. I took us a day to figure out that you can pick out the buses from the other vans by their blue license plates. Don’t worry about bus stops, just wave your hand and they will pick you up wherever you are. They come by about every 15 minutes. The buses travel from Georgetown all the way north at least as far as the North West Point of the island. Oh, they also travel from north to south. We took the bus way North late in the day. If you do this, plan on taking a cab back. The buses are not reliable that far North later at night.

    McCurley's Tours 345-947-9626 We rented a car from them. They pick you up at the airport, take you to the grocery and liquor store, then deliver you to your destination with your car waiting. It helps you get used to the left hand driving!

    by rjg Written Aug 24, 2002

    One of my favorite things about Grand Cayman was that it was so peaceful, yet so close to the U.S. It was very easy to get to with non-stop flights from Miami.
    Rent a car. Grand Cayman is very expensive, but we rented a car for only $40 U.S. per day. Each taxi ride costs about $20 U.S.

    Cayman Airways will get you to the islands cheaper and usually with a direct flight. The flight attendants are friendly, nice plans, and good food.
