In the Cayman Islands, you can hike through untouched woodlands, pay a visit to colorful reefs and fish on a scuba-diving or snorkeling excursion, or plunk yourself down on the islands' white sands with a frosted drink in hand. You can rent an isolated West Indian cottage or stay in a luxurious resort. You can chow down on fresh fried fish at a waterside shack or indulge in a world-class five-course meal in a fine restaurant. Whatever your tastes and budget, we will guide you to the best that the Cayman Islands have to offer.

This is devoted to the where, when, and how of your trip -- the advance planning required to get it together and take it on the road. Because you may not know exactly where in the Cayman Islands you want to go or what to do after you're there, we begin with a quick rundown of the various islands and their attractions.
