The sun-kissed Cayman Islands can be found almost in the center
of the Caribbean islands. Grand Cayman, the largest of the
trio of small islands is 22 miles (35 km) long and 4 to
8 miles (6-13km) wide. The busy coastal fringe leads
to an interior of luscious gardens, natural lakes and forests.
The Caymans sit on the edge of the Cayman Trench, a massive
trough that drops some 25,000 feet into the deepest part of
the Caribbean Sea. Divers from all around the world call it
"The Underwater Capital of the Caribbean". A dazzling
array of colored fish and corals is always on display.
The smaller, less developed islands of Little Cayman and
Cayman Brac are within easy reach. Isolated for many decades,
the islands provide peace, quiet and wilderness.
There are a number of car rental companies on Grand Cayman.
