There is Lots to do on a Cayman Islands Family Vacation

Cayman Islands
Before you set out on your Cayman Islands family vacation, you should know that the Cayman Islands cover an area of approximately 100 square miles but despite their size, they cover a multitude of diverse cultures and experiences.

This means you can stay in Grand Cayman and experience a Caribbean family vacation that has a distinctly westernized feel to it due to the Caymanians providing all the comforts of home in this tropical setting.

Or alternatively you can come off the cruise ship beaten path a little and visit one or more of the smaller islands such as Cayman Brac or Little Cayman where you will find life a little slower, a little more colorful, and a lot less like Disney went to the Caribbean!

From December to April when tourism on the Cayman Islands is at its peak, temperatures are approximately between 20 and 24 degrees. During the off-peak season the temperatures rise to around 28 degrees, and the rainfall is at its worst between the middle of May and October when short showers can be expected most days.

However, as the rainfall and temperature rises, in the Cayman Islands family vacation, the cost drops and so if you could have your holiday there somewhere between October and November for example, you could find yourself on a tropical bargain!

If you’re staying on Grand Cayman then George Town and in particular the Seven Mile beach are the places to see. Here the white sand and warm water is what every visitor’s dream of a Caribbean vacation is all about. If your family wants the opportunity to do some diving and snorkeling in the Cayman Islands than Eden Rocks and the Devil’s Grotto are close to George Town and you’ll be able to hire equipment near there.

Other exotic wildlife off this shore is Stingray City where you’ll be able to feed native stingrays in their natural habitat. If getting your feet (hair) wet isn’t part of your family vacation fantasy, then take a submarine tour on the Atlantis Adventure and explore the stunning views beneath the tropical waters.

Hikers should head across to Cayman Brac. Here you’ll find a great spot for championing eco-tourism on your family vacation. Apart from a network of approximately 28 trails around the island, you’ll also find the National Trust Parrot Reserve. Lighthouse lovers will be thrilled to see the lighthouse standing at the Northeast point.

If you want to experience a Cayman Islands family vacation with the least amount of normal tourist traps, then a visit to Little Cayman will be perfect. The smallest of the Cayman Island group this is the most undeveloped and iguanas outnumber humans for the most part.

Apart from being a great place for bird watching, Little Cayman is also a good location for those who love diving.

 Cayman Islands Family Vacation

Spot avian fauna on Grand Cayman Tours, including two endemic subspecies of Amazona parrots: Cayman Brac Parrot, native only to Cayman Brac, and Grand Cayman Parrot, which is native to the Cayman Islands, forested areas of Cuba, and the Isla de la Juventud (Isle of Youth).

Among other extraordinary fauna you may encounter on your excursions is the endangered Blue Iguana, which is endemic to Grand Cayman. Also present are the Central American agouti, along with the Booby Birds on Cayman Brac.

Cayman Islands offer a lot of diversity in terms of what visitors can expect, and that’s what makes it such a great choice for a family vacation. It’s hard to find one destination that suits everyone, but the Cayman Islands have so much variety, that it can’t fail to do exactly that!

    Best Destination Wedding-The Reef Resort

    I proposed to my fiance over a year ago and last month, we had our grand wedding in The Reef Resort in Cayman Islands.

    We chose the place because we met there five years ago. I met her when we were in the diving site. She was on vacation with her family while I was with my friends. Apparently, we are both from LA so we decided to continue seeing each other.

    Our destination wedding was really breath-taking. We said our marriage vows in beach area. The set-up was really cool and the food was really great. We couldn’t have asked for more since the resort staff did all that they could to make our wedding very memorable.

    Our guests really had a great time because after the day of our wedding, we toured around the islands. We went shopping, visited the islands’ attractions.

    We can say that it is one of the best places in the world. Now, my wife and I are planning to go there every two years so that we could reminisce one of the best days of our lives.

    Fabulous Stay At Cayman Islands

    We had our first ever out of the country vacation last month and I can say that it was our best vacation ever. We went to Cayman Islands and stay at the Reef Resort.

    When we arrived there, we were really treated well; it felt like we were the Royal Family. We had great accommodations, great food and most of all, we had a great time in the beach.

    We even did scuba diving at it was indeed the thing my family and I have ever done, to date.

    Hopefully, next year, we could go back in the Caribbean Islands and we are pretty much sure that the best is yet to come. Any place in the Caribbean that you could suggest for us to go to?

    • I love Antingua

      I would pick Antigua as your next vacation spot. The island is itself small but the beaches and the activities that you can do there is as grand and magnificent as Cayman Islands.
