As previously mentioned, we could not find the strength to leave the Cotton Tree on our last afternoon in the Cayman Islands. We were more than happy to stay right where we were and explore our nearby surroundings in between refreshing dips in the pool. Having said that, I do have a confession to make: I did not love Grand Cayman. While I thought it had beautiful beaches, though definitely not the most beautiful I have ever seen, I felt like the island really lacked the vibrancy, friendliness, and culture that is found throughout neighboring Caribbean nations. Nonetheless, I am firm believer in second chances and if I am ever afforded the opportunity to travel to the Caymans again I would not hesitate to accept. Next time I would like stay somewhere along the famed and centralized Seven Mile Beach and definitely visit the sister islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
