7 Cool Things to Do & 1 to Skip in The Cayman Islands

Diving (read more here) and snorkeling are great activities, but there’s plenty to do in Grand Cayman above the water as well. Art galleries, shops all around, restaurants, coconut water from street vendors, and of course, good old island rum.

Opened in the summer of 2013, it’s the only distillery in the island. They actually age their rum on the ocean floor and have the first-ever undersea rum maturation site! Since the Caribbean is all about rum, why not indulge and take a tour of the distillery while sipping a delicious cocktail? It’s five o’clock somewhere right?

Located on the west side of the island, the Seven Mile Beach is a beautiful stretch of white sand with hotels to fit any budget. We have stayed at the Comfort Inn Suites, where the rooms have a kitchenette which is great for families, couples or divers who don’t want to eat every meal out; and save for extra excursions. If you want a bit more luxury though, stay at the Marriot Resort next door (where we stayed in 2013). They have completely updated the decor to a more organic meets modern beach house vibe and it’s fabulous! The lobby bar serves great appetizers and a tasty rum flight that shouldn’t be missed. Almost directly across the street, there is a slightly outdated, flamingo pink strip mall, where you’ll find a tiny bar called Havana Club Lounge. Cigars are rolled out front by a traditional Cuban roller and inside, the rum selection is pretty fantastic. It’s a great spot to cap off the night or start it! ......
