It is my pleasure to share with you fun and exciting info on Cayman Islands including travel, dining, Cayman Weddings, fun activities and other interesting facts!
The Cayman Islands were just named Destination of the Year by Caribbean Travel Awards. The Caymans are laid back with a wonderful non assuming elegance. The beaches are amazing with primary focus on the famous Seven Mile Beach! The charm of Grand Cayman calls all who dream of a vacation with interesting architecture, warm British charm, plucky, warm and inviting Cayman hospitality, world class dining (also #1 in the caribbean), fabulous accommodation choices and world class diving and snorkeling (to name a few reasons)
Try some Warm sticky toffee pudding, dine on fresh caught local fish, swim with the sting rays, visit and get up close and meet a baby turtle or a well matured turtle! There is so much to do and see on Cayman Islands and with this blog please enjoy the shared info.

As we enjoy coming into Christmas week, here is a fun Caymanian tradition!
Backing Sand Family outings to the beach on the weekend are a major part of Caymanian culture, but sand plays another very important role in Cayman at Christmas time. Unlike many parents around the world, Caymanians have always been able to guarantee their children a white Christmas. The tradition of ‘backing sand’ has stood the test of time. Often, beginning as early as October, Caymanian women and children could be seen by the light of the moon carrying ‘ground baskets,’ woven from leaves of the magnificent thatch palm trees that tower loftily over the islands, brimming with powder-white sand from the beaches. The sand would be deposited in the front yard and on Christmas Eve raked into intricate patterns and decorated with shiny new conch shell pathways.
