George Town, Grand Cayman Cruise Port

This sunny British isle is known for its diving and fishing, but it’s as easy as the Caribbean gets: What it lacks in “off-the-beaten-path adventure,” it makes up for in safety and family-friendly attractions.

I've been here before but never taken an organized tour. If you just like to relax, take a taxi down to 7 mile beach and grab your own private spot. For those that like shopping, there are many tourist stores. However, I do recommend a Stingray/snorkeling tour. Even with beginner to moderate swimmers, lightweight preservers are mandatory so all are safe. You will see many friendly stingray and they seem to know there is no danger to them. They are free to come and go off this sandbar and always manage to grab some squid chum. To my knowlege, there has never been any bad incident. They welcomed people and didn't mind being touched. Those that didn't want to be touched just cruised on by you.

We thought the turtle farm was really interesting, as we are nature lovers. We had our picture taken holding the sea turtles (you can also take them with your own camera, and aren't obligated to buy theirs) The dowtown area had lots of good shopping. The town of "Hell" is a waste of time, although the rock formations are interesting. We had more interest in this huge lizard that was in the tree overlooking the rock formations!

Make sure you book an excursion if you want to go snorkeling. We waited and thought we could do better on our own. They will not take you unless you book through the cruise line...they have an agreement.

We went to 7 mile beach and had a nice day on our own. We rented some beach toys and my daughter got her hair braided (great price of $10). The island is still recovering from Hurrican Ivan.
