The Cayman Islands – A Destination for Foodies and Fun Seekers

We’ve just returned from The Cayman Islands having spent the week checking out what all three islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman – have to offer. On this visit, we brought along media from some of the country’s best outlets including Mercedes-Benz Magazine, the Huffington Post, Dabble, the new Away Magazine and many more. Our group was in the destination to experience the annual Cayman Cookout event, hosted by Michelin-star chef Eric Ripert and friends including Anthony Bourdain, Daniel Boulud, Marcus Samuelsson and Canada’s own, Lynn Crawford to name just a few.

We made sure our media had some truly unique experiences including a one-of-a-kind farm-to-table lunch in Cayman Brac, a picnic on deserted Owen Island just off Little Cayman (they kayaked over to work up their appetites!) and numerous meals at fine dining restaurants in Grand Cayman. And because they had to work off all that food, we kept them busy with a snorkel trip to Stingray City, and visits to Starfish Point, the Cayman Motor Museum, Hell Post Office, Camana Bay, a relaxing afternoon at the Silver Rain la prairie spa at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman and much more.

Check out the photos from our trip and let us know in the comments if you’ve been to the Cayman Islands or hope to go soon!
