Location Description

The Cayman Islands- Living up to its name in every sense, Grand Cayman fuses arts with culture, and nature with wonder, to produce the perfect atmosphere. On the west side of the island is award-winning Seven Mile Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of sand with infinite possibilities. Meanwhile, the North Sound is home to a neighborhood of stingrays that’s so big, we call it a city. Come face to face with the inhabitants of Stingray City and you’ll leave grinning from ear to ear.

English is the official language and the main spoken language heard in a variety of dialects. Spanish is frequently a second language.
