I had forgotten to write about this place. We stayed for 10 days at Mango Manor for our first real southern vacation back in 2004. I learned to snorkel here although the dead coral which lines the shoreline is a bit tricky to navigate on your way into the water. Hiking is a bit of a problem as well unless you come equipped with a good pair of hiking boots because the island is made of dead coral and can really carve up your running shoes when you leave the roadways to explore. The history of the area is very interesting and if you corner George you can settle in for some great stories. George is an Islander, born and raised, so he has many experiences to tell and is quite the character. Ask him to show you how to cut a coconut but stand back. He really can swing a machete. We stayed in the main house and enjoyed morning breakfast before setting off for the day, and there are some really great cafes to eat for lunch and dinner. George and Lynn also have a chalet with a kitchen for those who prefer to be by themselves and I checked that out before we left. I found it to be very clean, well laid out and close to the water, read other reviews that stated that a car was important, but my husband and I are hikers and walked most of the island during our stay without issue, (except for the bull in the field that we wanted to cross) We had a wonderful time here, relaxing, soaking up the sun and doing some great snorkeling at a fabulous price.We are busy exploring new areas of the world but always thought we would return to Cayman Brac someday. Enjoyed.
