I wanted to go so I can say I have been to hell. It was not really what I expected. There were a few souvenir shops, post office and in back was the black rock formations which was neat. There was another shop where you can get your passport stamped as well. Glad we went but don't expect much because you will be disappointed.

Although this is a 20 minute (at most) stop, it is worth checking out. Hell in Grand Cayman is a tiny 'town' with a post office, a gift shop and the namesakes' rock formation. The rocks do look eerie and a bit 'Hellish'. The post office provides you the opportunity to mail a post card to your friends back home and have it postmarked from Hell. The gift shop is interesting, with the expected Hell themed tongue-in-cheek shirts and mugs...plus one interesting thing you simply cannot get elsewhere...a stamp for your passport (be sure to bring it with you..and throw a few bucks in the tip jar aside of the stamp pad). How many people can prove by their passport that they have been to Hell and back?

You can get to Hell from Georgetown via public transportation for $2.50 p/p so don't overspend by using a taxi. The gift shop is located next to a real post office. If you buy postcards at the gift shop be sure to mail them at the POST OFFICE next door--not at the drop slot outside the gift shop. That way you will be sure it will get processed and postmarked with the Hell, Grand Cayman postmark. This place has become quite a commercialized area that was once just a shack that housed a post office. In 1980, I passed this place while on a local bus and did not realize that the shack located just off the street was indeed a post office and in a "city" called Hell.
It has some rock formations in the back and several photo opportunities for vacationers to make memories of Hell. Fifteen minutes should be adequate to see this place and send your friends a postcard. On your return trip to Georgetown, stop by the rum cake factory and/or turtle farm as well as the public beach at seven mile beach.

A lot of hype. There isn't much to see. It's quite out of the way and looking a bit tired. Your kids might think it's funny to have a picture beside the "Welcome to Hell" sign.

It's worth a few minutes of time; send somebody a postcard from Hell, get your picture taken, check out the cool black rocks in the back.
