Introducing Cayman Islands

What’s so surprising about the three Cayman Islands (population 56,800) at first is how un-British they are for a British territory – Grand Cayman seems straight from the US, with ubiquitous SUVs jostling for space at upscale malls and US dollars changing hands as if they were the national currency. Think of it as a much more orderly version of South Florida.

But get away from the crowded commercialism of Grand Cayman’s long western coastline and explore the low-key rest of the island. Or visit tiny Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, where crowds are measured in the dozens.
