Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are unique in beauty compared the the Bahamas.

Cayman Islands may not be the most popular port in the Caribbean, however, it does hold a good variety of tourists attractions that are not enjoyable but also unique including:

Stingray City

Stingray city is the most popular attraction in Cayman Islands. It is the place to go if you want to rub elbows with friendly stingrays and get the chance to feed them. For those wary of swimming or snorkeling with the sea creatures you can still have a good look at them from the safety of a glass bottom boat.

Cayman Turtle Farm

The Cayman Islands was originally named Las Tortugas due to the huge number of turtles on the island. The turtle population was almost depleted by the 1800s giving rise to the Cayman Turtle Farm, whose primary function is to raise green sea turtles.

Thanks to the Cayman Turtle Farms’ breeding, release, and research programs the green sea turtles now are safe from over production. Green sea turtles are still bred for their meat but the release of turtles also ensure their numbers stay stable.

Of course tourists also enjoy visiting the farm to see and even sponsor the turtles.

Other not so exotic yet equally enjoyable attractions in the Cayman Islands include:

  • Cayman Islands National Museum
  • Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park
  • Cayman Taffy Company - Great place to stop for treats and a fun time for kids too
  • Island Glassblowing Studio - Great place to stop for souvenirs
