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

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

Was closed mid week middle of the day! This is a big tourist attraction and should have been open. Very disappointing! Bought the rum cakes at the airport! Shame on you Tortuga Rumcakes Factory!

We stopped here on a tour from a cruise ship. Honestly, I'm not a fan of Rum but there were some nice souvenirs in the shop. The animals that are kept outside were probably the highlight for me. Took my dad home a rum cake, he loved it! Is there even a factory here?
