   Cayman Islands - Country and People

  The Cayman Islands - Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman - are located in the western Caribbean Sea, about 200 miles south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica.
The Islands are a British overseas territory. It is a financial centre, the so called Switzerland of the Caribbean and one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world.

About 90 % of the 44.000 inhabitants live on Grand Cayman, only about 100 on Little Cayman.

The islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus in May 1503.
Today the Cayman Islands are one of the most developed countries in the Caribbean area with a very good infrastructure. There is no unemployment.
Tourism and financial business is the source of Caymans wealth.

The biggest island, Grand Cayman, is about 25 Miles long and maximum 6 miles wide.

There is a Botanical Garden, a “Turtle-Farm”, an over the whole island spread “Museum” - the Marine Trail, the “Blow holes” in the southeast of the island, the Seven-Miles-Beach, a Butterfly farm, a village named “Hell” and a few other sightseeing spots.

Don’t miss a boat trip to Stingray City - an unforgettable experience!
