If there is one out of a few places in Cayman I would recommend it is Pedro St. James. There is so much history and to me is one of the key places to visit if you ever want to know about The Cayman Islands

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Pedro Saint James. Miss Trisha, our tour guide, is a jewel and so knowledgeable about the history of the house and the Cayman Islands. The theater show is sophisticated and multi-dimensional. Well done my Cayman friends!

Enjoyed the film first to be educated on the Cayman Island history, much of it involved this house and its occupants. The home itself has been totally rebuilt, furnishings are all authentic. To tour everything takes a minimum of 2 hours. Nice not to rush...More

Oh, if weather conditions prevent tendering into GT, ships sometimes can anchor off the South Shore and you tender in there as well.

We are considering a 6 night trip to Grand Cayman. We like the beach but are not into water sports and wonder if there would be enough to keep us busy. A possible itinerary is. Day 1 - Arrive, walk around and go to beach,. Day 2 - Full day island tour. Day 3 - West End tour and go to beach or a massage. Day 4 - Davinoff's Concrete Sculpture Garden and Pedro St. James National Historic Site . Day 5 - Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and Mastic Trail. Day 6 - Cayman Turtle Farm and...More

I am wondering how you came up with this proposed itinerary. To me, one of the best features of Cayman is slowing down to "island time" and relaxing on the world famous beaches. (You would not actually have to go into the water if that did not interest you, but it is incredibly tempting). IMHO you should plan to spend most of your time on the beach. To answer your questions: there are public buses to go to the sculpture garden and Pedro's castle, but it is not a short trip. From SMB area it...More
