Cayman Islands Transportation

  • Cabs, buses and vans

    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.

  • Renting a boat

    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.

  • The streets at the Grand Cayman

    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.

  • Cayman Airways

    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.

  • Rent A Car

    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.

  • Andy's Auto

    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.

  • Rent a Car

    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...

  • Not a Cruise

    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...

    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!

  • Getting There and Away

    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 fewflights between US cities and Cayman Brac. There are also flights between George Town and Jamaica on Air Jamaica. Travelers from Europe have...

  • The best way to travel is...

    The best way to travel is simply walking. The island is not very large to begin with, and it is easy to find your way around. I do suggest however, to take one day with a rental car to see the things on the island.

    Although Cayman Airways offers great service, they only go to Tampa, Miami, and Houston. Lately they have not kept their fares competitive either. Many US carriers fly into Grand Cayman. What many people do not know is that Island Air (a regional carrier) offers several flights per day to Cayman Brac (CYB). Island Air can only be found on the...

    Although they seem to have a thorough bus system, we rented a car for the week. Here is our 'mid-sized' rental---a Tercel. Not what I'd consider a mid-size, but it got the job done. By the way, we paid about $3.50/gallon US for gas while we were there.

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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.
