Hotels in Cayman Islands offer incredible access to a paradise destination known as Grand Cayman Island. Some of the most crystal clear water exists in places such as Grand Cayman’s Rum Point, Seven Mile Beach and Cemetery Reef. Unique places you’ll find on the island include Hell, which consists of a half-football-field sized area of short, black, jagged limestone formations, as well as Stingray City, where you can swim with stingrays in the middle of a crystal clear, shallow sand bar, seemingly in the middle of the ocean. If you are looking for the quintessential Caribbean trip, then hotels in Cayman Islands have a lot to offer. Before we get you to hotels in Cayman Islands though, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
A British overseas territory located in the Caribbean Sea, roughly 270 miles south of Cuba and west of Jamaica, The Cayman Islands have a population of around 65,000 people. While no archaeological evidence exists to suggest that the islands had been inhabited prior to European exploration, it is thought that the islands were first discovered by Christopher Columbus during his 1503 voyage to the Americas. Columbus originally named the islands Las Tortugas due to its large turtle population, but were later renamed to the Cayman Islands after its crocodiles. Thereafter, the islands became inhabited mostly by pirates, shipwrecked sailors and army deserters from Jamaica. In 1670, England took formal control of the Cayman Islands by way of the Treaty of Madrid, and by the 1730s a permanent English-speaking population had been established, with enslaved Africans accounting for over half the population in the first 1802 census. Slavery having been abolished in 1833, the Cayman Islands in 1863 declared itself independent from the Crown Colony of Jamaica, and it wasn’t until 1972 when a new constitution was written that the islands were granted a large degree of internal autonomy. Historically, the Cayman Islands have never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or wealth tax, which make them an attractive tax haven for big money hedge funds in particular.
The Cayman Islands today benefit from little temperature changes throughout the year. Hurricane season occurs from June to November. The Cayman Islands Dollar (KYD) is the islands’ official currency, with tourism contributing significantly to GDP. Grand Cayman is home to a number of popular attractions that include Seven Mile Beach, George Town, Pedro St. James Castle, Stingray City, Hell, Cayman Turtle Centre, Mastic Trail, East End Light and Truman Bodden Sports Complex. Popular food items include the likes of coconut shrimp, jerk chicken, turtle soup and stew, while the unofficial national dish is cassava or heavy cake, which is made with margarine, vanilla, boiled coconut milk, brown sugar, spices and grated cassava. For drinks, you might do well with rum punch, daiquiris, pina coladas, bikini martinis or the “seven mile breeze”, a concoction made from local vodka, cranberry and grapefruit juices, poured over ice and garnished with lime. Now that we’ve covered a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Cayman Islands that will help make for an unforgettable time.
