Grand Cayman Island Travel Information

When to Go

Mid-December to mid-April (winter) is the peak tourist season. Summer is a great time to come. The weather's warm, accommodation cheaper and the crowds thinner. There is more rain in summer, but it tends to come in downpours that clear as quickly as they arrive. You can be assured that the Caymans, nestled between Cuba and Jamaica, are as Caribbean as a steel drum. From mid-December to mid-April temperatures average a pleasant 75°F (23.9°C) during the day and 68°F (20°C) during the night, and humidity is at its lowest. During the off-season, temperatures average 83°F (28.3°C). Rainfall is highest from mid-May through to October, with frequent afternoon showers that clear as quickly as they arrive.

Getting Around

Most international passengers arrive at Owen Roberts International Airport just a couple miles from George Town on Grand Cayman. Some flights also serve Cayman Brac's Gerrard Smith International Airport. The best access to the islands is from the US, and numerous carriers have regular flights between Grand Cayman and Florida cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando.

Public minibuses operate on nine routes across Grand Cayman that radiate out from the bus depot on Edward St in George Town. Service is during daytime and frequency falls off the further east you go from George Town.

You can take a taxi anywhere on Grand Cayman, though availability drops off the farther you get from George Town. Taxis are not available on Little Cayman or Cayman Brac, though many hotels offer shuttle services to guests. You can take a ferry between North Sound and Rum Point on Grand Cayman, which takes about 40 minutes each way. The Caymans are flat and small enough that getting about by bicycle is feasible, so long as you're not ferrying scuba gear. Bicycles are available for hire.
