The rock formations forming “Hell” are interesting, but this is the kind of spot people on cruise ships go. It is a novelty and not worth spending a lot of time exploring it. They have nice souvenirs from “Hell” that are easy to take home...More

If you are at Georgetown, Grand Cayman Islands you need to take time to see "Hell". Most people might call this a tourist trap but it is unique and you can see how nature impacts the environment. You can also send a post card from...More

We made a quick stop at the Hell post office to send a post card to a family member for a laugh. Directly behind the post office is the neat rock formation that gave the town its name. Check it out. This is a quick...More

We drove to hell, there was no more room for us - the post office and the little souvenir shop took it all. Interesting place, though! Got to see the lava rock formations at the back of the stores which added to the Hell story.

There’s no way you can spend more than 30 minutes here and it’s worth going to say you’ve “been to hell and back”. Definitely a tourist scene, but still a fun/quirky stop if you have the time. Make sure to bring your passport! The gift...More

The black fossilized coral was interesting but only took about 30 seconds to see since there's not much there. The gift shop had a lot of trinket junk and some shirts. Given the short amount of time we were in Grand Cayman we wish we...More

The formation that the name of this town comes from is a fossilized coral reef that is above ground, pure black and right behind the giftshop pictured above. My visit was about 30 minutes which is about right for seeing the formation, looking for iguanas...More

Part of our Caman Island tour included the town of Hell. We were able to send post cards back home wishing they were in "Hell" with us. A uniqe place to visit and this is our third time,.

Without a guide to explain what you are looking at, it sure seems like a pile of rocks and some tourist-trap shops. Not worth the inland drive.

Oh, please don't spend your time that way! It is just an interesting thing for a quick stop if you are driving by anyhow -- I would go to the beach, take one of the boat tour options, if you don't want to do the water thing... More

Return from Grand Cayman (8 Replies)
Let me begin by saying, that after some 30 plus trips to the Caribbean and Mexico, as well as major US destinations, we feel that we have experienced just enough to be able to provide a fairly unbiased and accurate trip report on any destination we visit. We have always wanted to visit Grand Cayman and because of a great low-season price on Priceline we decided to go. Madelyn & I have just recently returned from an 8 day stay at the Marriot Grand Cayman Resort on Seven Mile Beach. To say the...More

Great report for long stay visitors. We're calling at GC on a cruise so what tourist things would you recommend that we can fit into just 9 hours ashore?

Tips from our Trip - Part 3 of 3 (1 Reply)
Continued from Part 2..... Restaurants: For breakfast, we ate at three places: Belly Buttons, Tradewinds, and the bakery in Esperanza. Tradewinds – the food here was “okay”, but it was the most expensive of the three places we ate. In their defense, they gave us so much food that we couldn’t come close to finishing it. If you go there, be sure to try the French toast made out of the local bread. Belly Buttons – Very good basic food (bacon, eggs, pancakes, coffee, etc.)....More

Best way to get to HELL (9 Replies)
Can some one please help me with the directions to hell. We plan to take the public transportation (bus) and I know we need to the West Bay bus to Water Course Road. But how far is it off West Bay Road? How far do we have to walk on Water Course Road? Or does the bus actually go down Water Course Road? Thanks

Take the #1 or #2 bus and just asked to be let off at Hell. They'll get you there.
