Overview

The authors know their stuff and it shows... jam-packed with travel tips. Travel Weekly. Color maps & photographs throughout. This guide zeroes in on the largest island in the Cayman group, though it contains abundant information about the Caymans as a whole. The Caymans are ultra-prosperous and safe, with great resorts, fabulous watersports, terrific restaurants. A major stop for cruise ships, there are 1,800,000 cruise visitors per year, plus 250,000+ arriving by plane. Lots of detail on the shopping, dining, hotels, sightseeing and entertainment, based on personal visits by the authors - plus a special emphasis on activities such as boating, fishing, golf, walking, biking, scuba diving, snorkeling, and bird watching. Other activities included are paragliding, sailing, catamaran cruises, soaring, waterskiing, windsurfing, driving trips and horseback riding. For all of these, the authors give a list of local operators who can set you up with equipment, ferry you around from site to site or actually guide you on the trips. Diverse woodlands and pristine wetlands occupy much of the islands' interiors, rugged hiking trails meander across the peaks and valleys, and mangrove swamps cushion the shoreline, offering a unique breeding ground for many birds and fish. These protected wilderness areas are often left unexplored by lay-in-the-sun-all-day tourists, who miss some of the biggest attractions the islands offer. We tell you how to see them all. The authors then take you touring, visiting all the popular tourist sites and towns, offering valuable tips on shopping, transportation, restaurants and accommodations.
