Whether you want to sit in the driver's seat, have your own driver or are looking for land-based tours, there are a variety of options to make getting around while you’re in the Cayman Islands a breeze.

Friendly cab services are at your beck and call from Grand Cayman resorts, Owen Roberts International Airport and the ship dock in George Town. There are also several reputable rental car companies available, allowing you to pick up your vehicle at the airport or at several locations around the islands. You’ll find a few public bus stops in the busier districts too, but these buses can be flagged down from anywhere along the side of the road as well.

Driving on the left side of the road provides adventure and round-a-bouts provide good stories to tell when you return home.
