The Cayman Islands, including Big Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, welcome thousands of visitors every year to experience a secluded island paradise. All three islands have played Hollywood movie roles over the years suggesting a place of intrigue, glamour, high stakes gambling, and forbidden romantic escapes. Visitors are drawn here by a sense of tropical mystery and adventure. This may be an exotic movie destination, but it's also a paradise for birdwatchers, scuba divers, and those who love to explore scenic inland hiking trails. The central city of Georgetown and the surrounding areas of the Caymans are a place of breathtaking natural beauty and are a home to several protected wilderness areas and marine preserves.
The best way to experience Georgetown and the Caymans is with a stay in your own private luxury vacation rental. Wake up in the morning in your elegant downtown condo or beachside villa and enjoy a leisurely breakfast on your balcony overlooking the ocean. Then wander downtown for a day of exploring, hiking, offshore adventures, and world class shopping and dining.
Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your trip:
-Go horseback riding: Georgetown riding stables offer guided trail rides, private lessons, and opportunities to gallop along the beach at sunset.
-Ride the Go Karts: Cayman Karting offers a fantastic indoor track for high-speed go kart racing. This is a perfect family friendly way to spend the afternoon.
-Visit the Cayman Islands National Museum: Explore this small but fascinating museum in the heart of Georgetown to learn more about the island's natural and cultural history.
-Visit the Boatswain's Beach Turtle Farm: The stewards of this protected wildlife area and turtle hatchery strive to educate visitors about the fragile turtle species that inhabit the islands and surrounding ocean.
-Play at Wowballs Caribbean: Splash the hot afternoon away at this fun waterpark, one of the most popular attractions in the area for families.
-Go deep sea fishing: Fishing tours leave the harbor each day soon after sunrise in pursuit of the game species and large fish in the deep waters off the coast.
You'll never run out of fun things to do in and around Georgetown, no matter what time of year you plan your visit. And you'll have no trouble finding the perfect vacation rental that offers the amenities you need to host your friends and family. Most condo rentals here are less expensive than hotels and provide more space and privacy. While you're in Georgetown, be sure to schedule time to explore Little Cayman and Cayman Brac as well.
