Cayman Islands: Day 2 (Part 1)

March 19, 2013

After enduring many months of cold weather and endless days without sunshine, it is now finally time to start thinking about the arrival of spring.  What better place to celebrate brighter skies, blooming flowers, and the feeling of grass between your toes than in the Cayman Islands?  Three small islands make up the British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands and are bordered by the deepest part of the Caribbean: the Cayman Trench.  While known around the world as a tax-haven paradise, there is so much more to this vibrant nation than just banks and beaches.  The best way to experience your vacation is by renting a car, which can be conveniently done at the airport.  Be sure to remember that Caymanians drive on the left side of the road!

My husband and I had never rented a car in another country together, thus we were both incredibly excited to partake in this new adventure, especially since we had a convertible.  There is nothing quite like driving around with salt air in your hair and the sun beaming down on your face.  We had no map and our intention was to get lost.  The following photos were taken during our short road trip around Grand Cayman:

With amazing culture, beaches, and activities — not to mention the weather — the Caymans are an extraordinary group of islands offering the ultimate spring escape.  Relaxing on sandy beaches, hopping between islands, partying at a resort, discovering wonders underneath the water, or catching a perfect wave above are all possible at this unforgettable Caribbean destination.

    Rod tripping around Caribbean islands is my favorite way to explore them. You find hidden coves and can really get off the tourist track. I haven’t been to the Cayman Islands but your photos make me want to go!

    Yay! I know what you mean about needing a spring vacation. The weather has been dreadful on the east lately, especially in DC, where I am. I’m so inspired by your Cayman Trip. I started looking at flights last night!

    I’m a bit envious of you after seeing these amazing photos. I really love the one of the driftwood and umbrella, and the one taken from the bottom of the palmtree. Gorgeous!
    BTW, can you really get lost on an island while driving 😉
    What a great way to see and experience a new place. We rented a moped of some sort to tour Grand Cayman. What a ride!
    Thanks for the beautiful pics!
