We were due to go a few months ago, but sadly we had to rearrange. Finally we got to go.
Cayman Airways flies direct from Tampa, so we were already pretty close. Nice relaxed morning before we headed out on a flight that leaves about 400pm if I recall. All credit to Cayman Airways, whilst the aircraft, as expected, were ‘slightly mature’, they were efficient with boarding, left a few minutes early, and had decent food on board.
Flight goes straight over Cuba, before landing in Grand Cayman, after approaching over the Seven Mile Beach, then turning in over the little town of Georgetown. Surprise on arrival, as the airport had been extended and massively refurbished (even the air conditioning works now !). Nice.
Short wait for a taxi, then on through horrible traffic (something had happened but we never quite found out what exactly !), then checked into our hotel, the Westin.
I suppose we are creatures of habit. I first came to Grand Cayman on business back in 2001 and stayed at the Westin. With only one exception, I always stayed there over the years. Nice hotel, nice pool, nice rooms, and great place to eat across the street for those of us who don’t always want to eat in our hotel.
Arrived at the hotel in time for a bite to eat at the outside terrace between the pool and the beach. In good time to see the sun set beyond us. They had a couple of Latin sounding singers there, and we smiled at a little boy who was dancing to the music Latin-style 😂😂
Quick peek at the shops and outlets, then back to a nice cool room afterwards, for a good nights sleep. 💤💤💤💤💤
