Default Anybody gone to Hell lately?

I been reading up on Hell in the Grand Caymans and there are soooooo many mixed reviews. As people who actually like cruises (boy there are some cruise haters out there) what are your opinions of Hell. Is it worth going to Hell? I was considering the Island tour and Turtle Farm, which has a stop in Hell. Has anybody been on that? Is the Turtle farm any good?

Thanks in advance!!!

We have been to hell, I found it interesting and unique, I liked the turtle farm, it's very good and they let you touch some of the turtles. On this tour we also stoped at a rum cake factory, and had some free samples.

I've heard the turtle farm is very interesting and as long as the side trip to "Hell" is part of it, worth the time. I wouldn't just plan a trip there alone, not much to see, but be sure to mail some post cards from there, they have a mail box there. You will beat any post cards home however, but still nice to send friends and family cards with that postmark. There are some very neat rock formations there you can view and take pics, a little store, etc., but thats about it, worth a 10 minute stop.

Yes I have been to Hell ( a couple of times in a handbasket ) and it is very interesting. I enjoyed the turtle farm very much especially since they remodeled it. I think you should enjoy them both. The last time I was in the Caymans they had just completed the bridge at the new hotel. The hotel may be complete by now. Enjoy your cruise.

I was just there nov 10th we went to hell.. it is a spot to see... we went to the 7 mile beach and the cemetary beach.. we went to the markets and shopping and to the turtle farm... the turtle farm is very expensive.. its $54 per person to see all of the turtles.. i think its a good idea to get the tour its intresting.. or just jump in a cab and they will take you where ever you want!!

I, a supposed IT manager, cannot figure out how to get the pic in here. Anyhow, I thought the best thing about Hell was taking a pic of the post office.

Grand Cayman is defn the type of place I would recommend getting a cab from the pier to take you on a tour so you can go at your own pace and spend more time where you want without rushing. Usually the cab tour operators will stop at Hell on way to Turtle Farm. I thought the larger tours didn't spend enough time at the Turtle Farm, given the crowds. The cab driver got us there when it was less crowded and let us go at our own pace....

I also dive, and I would also recommend finding a small diving operator if you want to dive, as sometimes they seem to cram way too many divers on some of the dive trips there.

Hi JR,
Very easy to put the pic in the message, although the pic has to be on the net somewhere. You can use the photo gallery here and use the [url] the same way your ticker is put in.
