Getting Around

From Point A to Point Beautiful

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.

Taxis
Taxis are available at Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman. This information is available from the taxi dispatcher at the curb. 

During your stay, taxis are also readily available from all Cayman Islands resorts and from the taxi stand at the ship dock in George Town if you take a Cayman Island cruise. 

Car Rentals
Renting a car during your stay in the Cayman Islands provides the most flexibility when it comes to transportation. Visitors can get a temporary divers license at any rental car counter or at the police station. Visitors applying for a temporary driver’s license in the Cayman Islands for the purposes of renting a car must be 21 years of age.

Driving on the left side of the road provides adventure and round-a-bouts provide good stories to tell when you return home. Caymanians are naturally friendly people and we are always happy and willing to lend a helping hand if you need directions and if you are really stuck, we have been known to drive there with you, just to make sure!

Car rentals available include Jeeps, Mini Vans, 4 doors, and SUV’s. 
Renting mopeds and scooters are also a great way to explore the islands on your own. 

If cars, scooters or mopeds don’t work for you, the Cayman Islands offer taxis, buses and limos for efficient and prompt service, regardless of your transportation needs and requests.

Limousine Services
Several private limousine services on Grand Cayman offer transport for special events and airport transfers as well.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What's the average cost of lunch or dinner?
On average, you can expect to pay between US$16.00 and US$32.00 (not including alcoholic beverages).
Can I bring meat into the country?
Small quantities of meat (up to 25Ibs.) arriving from approved countries may be permitted without a certificate, if they are pre-wrapped under a brand name and have an Official Seal of Inspection from the country of origin. If the small quantity of meat was purchased and wrapped at a licensed shop, the meat may be permitted with proof at the discretion of the port inspector. Importing large quantities of meat requires a Certificate of Wholesomeness from the country of origin. Large quantities of meat are permitted only from a specific list of approved countries, and conditions may be specific to a particular country or region.

Game meats are not exempt from certification. Endangered species carcasses for consumption are prohibited. Learn more at www.customs.gov.ky.
