These cakes are found all over the island. But if you go to a Tortuga factory, they are the best price. My family fell in love with the original flavor and we had them with coffee 2 mornings for breakfast. We also brought 12 home with us to give as gifts (and keep a few for ourselves). We will be...

It's not a factory but more of a shop and not a pleasant one. You can try samples of the cakes and buy them but the place was quite grubby with full, smelly bins outside so we just left. Others seemed to enjoy it though.

Be sure to stop by the Tortuga location near the Airport. Besides rum cakes and alcohol, they also sell meat, chicken and vege patties! Pastries are good too!

I have visited Cayman several times but this was my first visit to The Tortuga Rum Factory! It is a cute little store with lots of goodies inside! They have a variety of rum cakes and rum for sale (both can be sampled)! In addition, there are shirts, jackets, purses etc. This is the only Tortuga store to sell the... More

We stopped at the Tortuga Rum Factory while in port at Grand Cayman. The "factory" part is a small, dirty window where you can look into the kitchen area, where they make the rum cakes. The biggest part of the operation is the store. They offer free samples of the different kinds of cakes. But, it's interesting they call it... More

The actual staff here was friendly. They provided free samples of rum and cake. However, I felt the security guard was unpleasant. He approached my group who was sampling the rum which is self serve. We poured a sample in a little cup ourselves and he walked over and almost yelled at us and said only one sample per rum.... More

Not much to see here unless you really want to buy a rum cake. We didn't see any of the "factory" just the storefront portion.

Free Rum Samples & Rum Cake? YES, PLEASE!! Who cares if it's 10am? There are so many flavors of rum and rum cake -- this was a great stop on our tour. Free samples galore! Plus, they'll ship if you can't take them home. Our friend ended up buying about 10 full sized cakes and about 10 mini cakes --... More

Took an excursion around the island, and one of the stops was here. The staff was friendly and the samples were delicious, that we had to buy some for family and friends back home  I fell in love with the rum cakes ( bought 6 of them ) and wish I would have bought more! Please check out my... More
