Cayman Islands Vacation Guide
It may be famous as a tax haven but no place is equipped for fun-filled vacations quite like the Cayman Islands. From all inclusive luxury resorts on Grand Cayman, to exciting events like Pirates Week and the Cayman Carnival, to an entire season of travel discounts during the Cayman Summer Splash, the islands make it extremely easy to find an affordable and enjoyable vacation, whether you're a banking whiz, college student, retiree, or from any other walk of life.
On land, Seven Mile Beach is where the action is with plenty of bars, restaurants, and thousands of other tourists who are here for the surf and sand. In the water, nothing beats Stingray City where you can snorkel, scuba dive, or hop on a jet ski laden with treats to feed the stingrays by hand. If a quiet and relaxed vacation is what you're looking for, you will find it on Grand Cayman's sister islands Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. The smaller islands have plenty of nature reserves, isolated beaches, and all the ingredients necessary to have you recharged and refreshed by the time your Cayman Islands vacations draw to an end.

How to Save on Vacations to Cayman Islands
If you can bear the high temperatures of a Cayman Islands' summer, plan your vacation around the Cayman Summer Splash when discounts are available on everything from flights and hotels to water sports and restaurant meals. If you're travelling with family, look out for additional discounts on tickets for children or groups at local attractions, and keep those savings coming.
Food on the islands can be expensive, especially for items which have to be imported. So this is your chance to indulge in a lot of seafood one of the few things that doesn't have to be shipped in from overseas and is therefore quite cheap. And if you're just not that into squid and scampi, there are over 150 restaurants on the islands, giving you plenty of budget options to choose from.
The Cayman Islands are a popular vacation destination during the winter months owing to their sunny weather and pleasant temperatures which average 23-24°C from December to April. This is also the peak tourist season on the islands and it will be difficult to find cheap flights or hotels during this time.
The rest of the year is considered the off-peak season and you can find all inclusive vacations to the Cayman Islands quite easily from end-April to November. However, be prepared for occasional showers and temperatures approaching 30°C in July and August. The islands are rarely hit by hurricanes, but just in case, check the weather forecast before you travel.
