Nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the Western Caribbean, just 4 hr. from Toronto, the Cayman Islands is comprised of 3 islands gems – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman – each offering endless possibilities. Blessed with sun-kissed beaches, some of the best diving in the world, a renowned restaurant scene and unsurpassed service, the Cayman Islands is a destination for those who want to return from their vacation feeling truly pampered and refreshed.

Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman is the largest of the 3 with fine dining, shopping and a wealth of activities to soothe the stressed. Clients can spend the day soaking up the sun on the powdery white sand of Seven Mile Beach or visit the destination’s most famous attraction, Stingray City. Touted as the “world’s best 12 ft. dive”, this once-in-a-lifetime experience provides a rare opportunity to snorkel or dive with Southern Stingrays in their natural habitat. There’s plenty more to see and do for 1 st time or return visitors – get up close with sea turtles at the Cayman Turtle Farm, check out fine cars at the Cayman Motor Museum, stop by the QEII Botanic Park, laze the day away at Rum Point or check out Camana Bay, a unique town centre bursting with retail shops, restaurants, interactive fountains for the kids and the best view of Grand Cayman – from the top floor of the unique Observation Tower. And that’s just for starters. Grand Cayman has countless activities and attractions for every age, both above and below the waterline.

 For the ultimate escape, send your clients to the Sister Islands – Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Pristine walls and fascinating shipwrecks for divers, nature trails, caves, some 200 species of birds and secluded beaches make adventurous Cayman Brac a must-do destination for guests who love to explore. Rising 140 ft. from the sea, the island’s limestone Bluff is its most striking feature and rewards hikers with a dramatic view from the top. At just 10 miles long, Little Cayman’s residents are outnumbered by the over 2,000 iguanas that roam freely on this tranquil island. Those dreaming of getting away from it all can while the day away in a hammock, explore the island’s abundant wildlife sanctuaries or dive famous Bloody Bay Marine Park with a reef that plummets to 6,000 ft. offering dazzling views of deep water corals, turtles, sharks and rays.


Both Air Canada and Westjet offer non-stop scheduled service year-round from Toronto to Grand Cayman. Other options are available with U.S. carriers through various gateways and Cayman Airways provides daily flights to the Sister Islands.
