Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is a grand contradiction, a tropical idyll combined with an international banking haven. Here, you can sip frozen refreshments next to Gucci-clad bankers crunching numbers and lobster shells, open an offshore bank account, and pet a stringray on the same day. Taxis are available at the tender pier, but George Town can easily be explored by foot. Walk north along Harbour Drive, the waterfront promenade, and plunge into a sea of shops, luxury boutiques, and first-rate restaurants, all clustered within a few-block radius. Caymanians enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the region. A hassle-free ambiance pervades, and there's not a street vendor in sight.
