Flights to Grand Cayman
Your Grand Cayman flights will generally land at Owen Roberts International Airport, the main airport of the Cayman Islands. More than 55 weekly Grand Cayman flights land from Miami, either on American Airlines or Cayman Airways, but service is provided from a range of providers to other locations, including Chicago, Detroit, London, and New York. With only one terminal building, Owens International may seem small, but it is an important base of operations for all flights, and flights from Delta, United, and American Airlines arrive and depart there regularly. From the Owen Roberts Airport, you can get to your hotels by complimentary van, taxi, or limousine service. Book a ride on the airport bus service in advance to get to nearby Georgetown and its cruise ships.
Grand Cayman Weather
Flights to Grand Cayman deliver you into the warmth of the tropical sun. In the winter, the temperature ranges between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. In the summer it can rise to 95 and get quite humid. If you are looking for a temperate time to visit, March may be your best bet, although if you want lower humidity and temperatures, visit any time between December and April. Seasonal trade winds keep the temperature lower, despite the humidity in the summer months. Pack mostly casual summer clothing, but remember to bring something nice for that fancy dinner!
Getting Around Grand Cayman
Your Grand Cayman flights are just the beginning of the adventure! Once you are on the island, there is a lot to do and explore. Getting around the island can be an adventure. While getting a temporary drivers license and renting a car may give you the most flexibility in exploring the island on your own, sometimes traveling the way the locals do can be even better. Several public bus lines run through the districts on the island. The main terminal is located in George Town, and licensed buses with blue plates take both US and Cayman Islands dollars. While there are few bus stops around the island, you can flag down a bus at the side of the road.
Grand Cayman Attractions
Attractions and activities include snorkeling, diving, shopping, museums, as well as hiking and caving. You could spend your entire holiday just trying to decide what to do first! Make sure you explore the natural world of Grand Cayman. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
