Grand Cayman with Kids
- Ease of getting there. Our flight was under 4 hours and around $300 per person. Once we landed, it was a few minutes' drive to our condo. We stayed in Georgetown, which I highly recommend, but even Seven Mile Beach is only 15 minutes from the airport.
- Safety and comfort. The island is known for its low crime rate. On top of that, we didn't experience the harassment from vendors and aggressive sales tactics prevalent in other tourist destinations. The whole time we were there, we saw one person who wasn't affiliated with a resort selling something on the beach and she was simply advertising, not approaching anyone.
- Tropical, yet familiar. We were on vacation on a tropical island, eating lots of delicious oxtail and curry, yet we felt at home. Dollars were accepted everywhere we went, as were our credit cards. Driving was on the left side of the road and that took some getting used to, but otherwise, it was all very easy and comfortable.
