Location

The Cayman Islands are located 180 miles south of Cuba and 200 miles northwest of Jamaica and a one-hour flight to Miami Florida. Of the cluster of three islands the majority of the population resides in Grand Cayman. The centre of business activity is George Town.

Climate

The Cayman Islands have a tropical marine climate, with a wet season of warm, rainy summers (May to October) and a dry season of relatively cool winters (November to April). In the capital, George Town, a typical daily maximum is around 32 °C (89.6 °F) in the summer and 29 °C (84.2 °F) in the winter. Atlantic hurricanes occasionally hit the islands, with the hurricane season running from July to November.

Culture & Lifestyle

The Cayman Islands are considered amongst the most livable islands in the Caribbean. The Islands offer world class golf courses, restaurants, and shopping. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of George Town head out along the western coast of the island. Better still, leave Grand Cayman and visit the charming sister islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Here life runs at a slower pace and the natural delights include bird-watching, hiking, diving, and snorkeling.

Blue Iguana

The Blue Iguana is endemic to Grand Cayman - meaning it is found nowhere else in the world. The Grand Cayman Blue Iguana is a unique and magnificent creature, but one which stands on the brink of extinction. For more information visit www.blueiguana.ky
