As the plane touches down at Owen Roberts International Airport in George Town, a nearby passenger prepares to disembark while excitedly telling her seatmate that this is her family’s third trip to Grand Cayman.
First-timers to the Cayman Islands will quickly learn that this is not a unique scenario, in fact, Cayman enjoys a high repeat factor at 57%. And after getting to know the destination, it’s easy to understand why, reports Ashley Rochefort in this week’s cover story in Travel Courier.
Cayman is coveted for its safety, excellent customer service, and Caymankind, the nation’s very own brand of friendliness.
Grand Cayman, the largest of the three islands, boasts everything you could want in a vacation spot – great beaches, luxury accommodations and amenities, tropical adventures like hiking the Crystal Caves (www.caymancrystalcaves.com) and swimming with wild stingrays (www.caymanluxurycharters.com), not to mention it’s the culinary capital of the Caribbean.
But if your clients are among the many who vacation in Cayman again and again, perhaps they’ll be looking for something new to discover by their second or third trip.
Just 145 kilometres off the north-east coast of Grand Cayman is Cayman Brac, a small island wonder with wild shorelines, unspoiled natural beauty, and unpretentious local charm.
“As the second largest island in the Cayman Islands, Cayman Brac is equal parts thrill and chill,” describes Raymond Mathias, Business Development Manager – Canada, The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. “Cayman Brac is just one of those unique and special places that people remember long after they depart.”
