Default Re: do-it-yourself shore excursions

In Grand Cayman we purchased the String Ray City Tour from the Cruise Line. On the way back to where the boat was docking from Sting Ray City we asked the Captain how we get from where we were docking to the Turtle Farm. We did as he said. Walked about 1/4 of a mile to the Hyatt Hotel, flagged a taxi that took us to the Turtle Farm. Toured the Turtle Farm (small charge as compared to the Cruise Line price) and Tortuga Rum Cake Factory. We asked the cashier at the factory, "how do you get to Hell?" She said it was an easy 15 minute walk. Well we may have been somewhat slower than she because it took us about 30 minutes. We walked through some not very good neighborhoods, however, everyone we saw had a smile on their face and geeted us. We felt perfectly safe going to Hell. Once we arrived that area was aptly named. It was just a bunch of rocks and few shops. We were glad we did not pay the Cruise Lines price to go to Hell! We caught a taxi back to our tender and all in all had a good day!
