Default Grand Cayman Shopping

Next month is our first cruise (SOO excited) to Grand Cayman and Calica. We have about 2 hours to shop and get back to port from Sotos Cruises (Soto's Charter Club on Palm Heights Drive, off the Seven Mile Beach road).

Any places that we just have to stop/shop at? Thanks, Carla

George Town's main shopping district is directly across the street from the tender pier. It offers the best shopping in the Caribbean, with many local shops carrying products that are of much better quality than what you will find on other islands. In the shopping district, be sure to stop by the rum cake stand for some free samples. The coconut rum cake is my personal favorite!

That said, I should warn you to add 25% to quoted prices before agreeing to a sale. The Cayman Islands dollar is pegged at $1.25 in U. S. currency, so an item quoted as forty dollars will cost $50 due to the conversion.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.

Clarify what currency the price is quoted in. "Is that in CI or US ?" has to be one of the most common questions. Many stores will prominently post signs.

Gr Cayman is so congested, I would shop near the cruise terminal to insure being back on time..that is the main place to shop..lines to re-board can also be long. The new terminal is lovely but with many ships in port the day we were there it really had no charm at all. Hope in April we find a nice spot away from the hordes! We did have a nice lunch at a place called Bacchus--across from Sneor Frogs..it was a nice spot, quiet, good service & nice menu..
