There’s so much more to Grand Cayman than Seven-Mile Beach, the turtle farm and a trip to Hell. Here are the top five things on my island to-do list. 1. The Mudslide Head over to the Wreck Bar & Grill at Rum Point, where you can slurp a Mudslide where […]

Shopping in Grand Cayman, Part II

Shopping in Grand Cayman, Part II

(Click HERE to read Part I.) I couldn’t resist popping the cleverly named Bedside Manor, where you can buy […]

My Dirty Little Jamaican Secret

My Dirty Little Jamaican Secret

I’m a big fan of authentic Caribbean food. Trini doubles; Bahamian conch salad; Puerto Rican mofongo; Anguillian crayfish: bring it on! But I have to confess to one distinctly counterfeit Caribbean culinary obsession: Jamaican KFC. It all started in when I lived on the irie isle, where, as far as […]

Grand Cayman’s Coolest Cocktail

Grand Cayman’s Coolest Cocktail

On the northern tip of Grand Cayman, the Wreck Bar at Rum Point is the mecca for thirsty cruise-ship day-trippers (and on Sundays, a local boating crowd) in search of surf, sand and slurps. It’s also the home of the Mudslide, the signature libation that many claim was invented right […]

Shopping in Grand Cayman

Shopping in Grand Cayman

Sure it has 30 stores but whatever you do, don’t call Camana Bay a mall! As I found out on a trip there last week, the burgeoning development on Grand Cayman is so much more than that. Opened four years ago on 500 acres bordered by Seven Mile Beach and […]

BuyDay Friday: The Caymans’ Hottest Souvenir

“$20 a jar?! This better be some AMAZING stuff,” I thought as I handed over my cash at the supermarket in Grand Cayman yesterday. During dinner with some islanders the night before I’d asked what local product they take with them when they visit friends and family abroad. It’s a […]

Grand Cayman’s Floating Restaurant

Grand Cayman’s Floating Restaurant

I know: those tepid Caribbean waters feel so good you never want to leave them. The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman knows, too. That’s why guests of the swanky Seven-Mile Beach resort can drink and dine without ever emerging from the big blue on four-person Aqua Lounge tables that float in the […]

Grand Cayman’s Secret Beach

Grand Cayman’s Secret Beach

What’s not to love about Grand Cayman’s Seven-Mile Beach? Sugar-white sand; glassy turquoise waters; a string of hotels, restaurants and bars right on the sand (shout out to Calico Jack’s!); and a lively, in-the-thick-of-it vibe. But sometimes even the beach-iest bum wants to take it down a notch and chill […]
