Vacation, Travel & Dive Information
Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac
form the tiny Cayman Islands chain located 480
miles south of Miami and just west of Cuba.
In terms of size, they are little more than specks in the ocean. All 3 islands are actually the jutting peaks of
a huge undersea mountain. Not surpassingly, all 3 are
very popular diving destinations.

The largest and most commercially developed
is Grand Cayman, which houses about 94% of the Cayman population.
The most famous attraction is underwater: Stingray
It also has one of the Caribbean's best self-guided
town walking tours, beautiful Seven-Mile Beach, plus a few
rather unusual attractions: watching marine turtles
breed or literally going to Hell, at a small
patch of bizarrely shaped rock that's a major tourist
Grand Cayman is one of the most prosperous
islands in the Caribbean. A melting pot of British
colonists, Canadians, Americans and Caribbean islanders, it is ranked
as one of the world's top major international banking centers,
on par with Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
It has a staggering total of more than 500 registered
banks and 300 insurance companies. But they
are discreetly hidden; they don't stick out on every
corner like 7-Elevens.
The wealth these financial institutions have brought
to the island is obvious. Grand Cayman has enjoyed
a condominium boom, shopping malls have popped up all over, and the
island now boasts more restaurants per capita than
any other Caribbean island.
