We visited Pedro St. James Historical Site one morning during our trip to the Cayman's. It was very nice to see this type of historical site restored.

He knows the history because he lived the history. Mr. Hurleston is... More

This is a good placed to start a visit to the Island, as you get some historical background through varying media. There is an exhibition where you can read local stories about how the island evolved and what it was like to live here in the past. The ticket lady came to fetch us to tell us that the film... More

It was something to do on a day when most everything is closed in Cayman and we didn't feel like hitting the beach as the sea was so rough that day. So off we went. Finding it was a bit tricky, but... More
