Trip Report Grand Cayman...we are hooked!!

Jump to last reply

Just got back from Grand Cayman & still in awe of the perfect, perfect beaches & beautiful island. Stayed at Westin on points. We loved the hotel & the location. Would definitely stay there again but will probably stay at condos next time because plan to bring our 3 kids & just seems to make more sense.

Snorkeled lots in front of hotel & Governors Reef next door. Shocked how much I saw. Took snorkeling trip with Capt Marvin's. Unbelievable!! Did a catamaran sunset cruise from hotel. Pretty enjoyable & lots of locals too.

Went into Georgetown shopping one day & used buses. Very easy & enjoyed lunch & shopping.

Mostly just hung out on that beautiful 7 mile beach, took long walks & floated around in the ocean. We made a point to catch the sunset every night...best one was watching it from Calico Jacks...which we loved. Nothing like sitting barefoot, drinking a cold Caybrew, eating fabulous jerk chicken & watching the sunset. Words can't describe how clear the water is in Cayman. Really as clear as a swimming pool.

We talked to so many very friendly local people. Felt safe at all times & we walked home from restaurants / bar every night on beach in the dark.

Thanks for all of the great advise from you experts. We are DEFINITELY going back!
