Stroll through the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park to see some of the island’s natural flora and fauna. Pedro St. James National Historic Site is a “castle”-turned-museum and the oldest building in the Caymans. Here, visitors can learn about the unique heritage and culture of Cayman while exploring the seven acres of land by the sea that this site sits on.
Food & Dining
While you might choose to cook up dinner in the comfort of your Grand Cayman vacation rentals some nights, make sure to go out and taste the local cuisine on the island.
