I know this places offers temp housing like sublets and rooms for rent. Have anyone tried this in GC?
We were on the sting ray city tour in January and my daughter was stung by something in the water. She didn't see it and wasn't aware of it until we got out of the water. She then had very red sore and swollen toes and that night developed a fever. We were on a cruise and saw the doctor on board who gave her an antibiotic to which she didn't respond. 4 days later she still had fever and swollen toes, we then went to a medical center where she was given a cortisone needle. She then started to respond. Has anyone had a similar experience?
My husband and I love the Cayman Islands and want to bring our 3 year old. The only time we can fit it in our schedule is late August, but I'm worried about the rain. Can anyone tell me What kind of weather we would be in for? If it rains, is it an all day occurrence or just a short while and then it clears back up? Also, I've read several stories about the mass amount of red crabs coming ashore over the past month. It sounded like they were covering the beaches, which will freak out our daughter. Are they still everywhere?
Within the next two months I'm going on a cruise and stopping at Grand Cayman. It will be my spouse and I and we are trying to pack everything in that we can for our day adventure there. We know that we definitely need to do Stingray City and were wondering if we should do the Turtle Farm and/or Starfish Beach? I have seen pictures of Starfish Beach and it looks amazing! It's not one of the cruise tours but I want to know if the beach is really like all of the pictures and is worth going to. Are there other places that are a must in Grand Cayman for when I go? Lastly, if I want to hit up some/all of these places (I know we have limited time but we would make it work) is it better to hire someone to drive us or just purchase everything through the cruiseline and go to the places along the tour we take? Please let me know, we are excited to go and want to know the places we should see. Thanks
I have read that it is okay to take a 2 year old to stingray city. I am wondering if anyone can recommend a company that would be toddler friendly. We don't need to participate in any snorkelling afterwards and would prefer to keep the trip relatively short. If you thinks it's really inappropriate to bring such a small child along, I'm interested in hearing your opinion. Thanks,
We will be arriving via cruise ship April 18th. We'd like to have lunch at one of your local establishments, shop where the locals go. I'm not into the big fancy jewelry shops. I would like to shop where the locals sell their crafts. There is 3 of us, all middle aged ladies celebrating our birthday's together. I think we'll pass on the snorkeling, stingray's etc. Not saying we wouldn't like to try it, just not enough time. I do want to purchase some rum and johnny cakes! None of us have been to GT before, totally looking forward to it. I guess I'm asking for any tips, suggestions, advice you might have for us. We arrive at 10 and ship leaves at 6. (RC) I want to make the most out of seeing your town and enjoying it on the time frame we have. I did read where the taxi's are somewhat expensive, I think we'd be happy exploring your GT within walking distance. Not saying a taxi is out of the question. I would appreciate any tips, suggestions, advice for our day in GT! Thank you! Debbie
We are thinking about booking an excursion to stingray island from our carnival boat, but we don't like the time restrictions on an excursion. Is it easy to snorkel there ourselves? Or not? We don't want to miss the boat....
Hi there Im going to take a cruise and I will spend one day at Grand Cayman. Im not really interested on the tours from the cruise, so Im wondering if its worth it to walk around the town. Do you know if there is public transportation to downtown, or what do you recommend? I don`t want to spend much money. Are there free beaches or where should I go? Im kind of lost here, I will appreciate your help. Thx
We will be on carnival cruise lines, visiting 1 day in January between 7am and 4pm. Do you think there will be time to do some snorkeling? Also is it true this is the rainy season, and it is windy?
We are viviting the Caymans on a crusie and need to know about any visa requirements.
What's the weather like in January in Grand Cayman?
Hi! My best friend and I will be in the Caymans and I would like to know how far it is from Carnival cruise line port to Georgetown? Do I need to get a taxi? Or get a guide to take me? How much? And is margaritaville worth it? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! gmnjr4
Visting for a day as a crusie stop over. I am looking for suggestions of what to do. I will be travelling as a family with two boys aged 9,10. Thanx
Hello, My husband and I are considering visiting Grand Cayman with our 1 year old. We would likely stay at the Morritt's resort on the opposite side of the island from 7 mile beach. There are some openings in September but we understand that this is generally the rainy season (and of course hurricane season). We are wondering how much it actually rains. Since we'll have a small child we don't want to be cooped up in our unit most of the day, nor do we want to be hanging out on the beach in the rain. Can anyone tell me what it's usually like? We've been the island in May when it was completely dry with only a few showers at rum point (seemed to be the only place on the island getting the showers at that time). It's our understanding that the side of the island we are considering is also generally wetter. Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.
Hey all! Heading to George Town on a stop with a cruise in Feb. and wondered if anyone knew about the brewery. I was hoping to take a trip to it after hanging out with the family on shore. Cost of taxi? Time to get there? Length of trip? Also, what about a good place for cuban cigars? Any other info about George Town would be helpful too!
Staying with the family on the 7 mile beach for a week. Is the island accessable by bike, scooter, foot, or will we want a car to get around to restaurants and general exploration?
We are loooking to stay on grand cayman in january. East end seems nice and remote ( we are not looking for night life etc) however the guide books mention a stong onshore breeze/wind. Does anyone know if this is a problem at this time of year? We would want to be able to sit on the beach etc. Is the snorkeling off the beach good? Does the breeze make the sea conditions too rough? Any other information gratefully recieved. Many thanks Linda

I would like to know, what are the prices in Cayman islands (for clothing, for example) ? Are they similar or better then in USA or UK ? What products are good bargain there ? I know that there is duty free, but otherwise its a tourist destination with potential bigger prices... Thanks for every advice.
We plan to rent a condo at North point on April-May, but we have concerns about the beach and the water. Is the beach is littered of dead corals and seaweed ? The entrance to the water is littered of dead corals ? which means, we have to wear beach shoes ? is swimming is good ? lots of seaweed into the water ? The condo is located about 5 minutes (by car) south of Rum point. Every information you know about North Point, Cayman Cai, for the beaches, the water, snorkeling is appreciated. Thanks. Nous voulons louer un condo à North Point en avril-May, mais nous avons des interrogations concernant la plage et l'eau. La plage est-elle remplie de coraux morts et d'algues ? L'entrée est-elle aussi remplie de coraux ? ce qui veut dire, porter des souliers de plage pour marcher dans l'eau ? peut-on nager facilement dans l'eau ? y a-t-il beaucoup d'algues dans l'eau ? Le condo est situé 5 minutes en auto au Sud de Rum point. Tout ce que vous savez sur North point, Cayman Cai, pour les plages, l'eau, le snorkeling est apprécié. merci.

Is there a place near the cruise ship terminal to rent snorkel gear for a day?
I would like to schedule a trip to Grand Cayman in Feb. 2010. I am looking for a kid friendly place for a 3 and 7 year old. One adult diver, one adult non diver. Would prefer all inclusive because of the kids and who knows what they will or will not eat. Has to have a pool. Any suggestions? Dive shop recommendation would be apprecipated too.
We are going to have a 3 hour lay over in Grand Cayman prior to traveling onto Cayman Brac. Are there any suggestions to enjoy this time at Grand Cayman that would fit the timeframe? Thanks. Pam
Any do's and donts, warnings etc??????????????????
What other water activities are there to do on Grand Cayman other than the Sting Ray City (which we have done before)?
Hi all, Anyone know of some cheap accommodation on the Cayman islands. Budget hotel, hostel or guest house. Even a small appartment, anything will do. We are on a trip around the world and have a 1 week stay planned in may. Any ideas. Our budget lies around 30 euros per night but we could go up a bit. Thanks in advance Ben
