    Don't buy the coconuts here to eat or to drink it's juice. They are not sweet at all. You are just wasting your money.My daughter bought one and she said it didn't have a taste on it. It's not like those coconuts that you buy in Southeast Asia especially those found in the Philippines (I grew up eating fresh coconut meat and drinking it's fresh...

    When we went to the Cayman Island's Stingray City, the owner of the boat that we rented was extra special. For free, he took us on a side trip to dive conches.The owner and his partner, an immigrant from Honduras, let my husband and daughter Rainier dove for two live conches. The Honduran guide took a huge hammer and cut the back of the conch...

  • Crime

    When I was there a group of us visited a nightclub somewhere along Seven Mile Beach. We were far from being a rowdy crowd of drunken Englishmen abroad but that didn't seem to stop a few of the local guys from taking exception to us. We ended up being chased out of the club with machetes and the hire cars had the scars to prove it. Be warned!

  • THey drive on the WRONG side...

    THey drive on the WRONG side of the road there! It's a bit scarey the first time a car comes at you from the right! Actually, it was a bit scarey the whole week! Plus, the turn indicators are on the wrong side of the steering wheel----which resulted in us having the cleanest windshield on the island!

    While we were there, crabs were running all over the place! It made it a little interesting trying not to hit them while driving! Some of them were quite large---makes you wonder how they lived to get so big! There were also a lot of tiny ones, like this one.

    If you're a relatively new diver, as we were (actually we were just certified 2 days before our trip), be sure to go with a divemaster. We went out on our own & I got some bad equipment. Actually at 60 feet, my reg stopped working & I had to buddy-breathe to the top. It didn't stop us from diving however - we've dove many, many more times & are...
