GETTING THERE

GETTING AROUND

Many international airlines have daily
services to the Cayman Islands, which
are located in the Western Caribbean,
480 miles south of Miami, Florida; 150
miles south of Cuba; and 180 miles
northwest of Jamaica. By air, the Cayman Islands are only a 70-minute flight
from Miami.
Most international passengers arrive
at Owen Roberts International Airport
a couple miles from George Town on
Grand Cayman. Some flights also serve
Cayman Brac’s Gerrard Smith International Airport. The best access to the
islands is from the US, and numerous
carriers have regular flights between
Grand Cayman and Florida’s Miami,
Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando.
Airlines also offer direct services from
Houston, Atlanta, Memphis, Pittsburgh,
Indianapolis, Chicago, Boston, Newark
and other US cities. Cayman Airways has
a few flights between US cities and Cayman Brac. Air Canada flies direct from
Toronto, and British Airways flies direct
from London-Heathrow. There are also
flights between George Town and Jamaica on Air Jamaica.
Cruise ships regularly dock at George
Town on Grand Cayman and at Creek on
Cayman Brac.

Cayman Airways has daily flights to the
Sisters islands.
Grand Cayman Island has well-maintained roads and highways that allow
divers to explore the entire island.
Rental cars are recommended and your
hotel can usually arrange for a weeklong package with your hotel accommodation. Do reserve a car in advance
as they are in demand. You have to be
at least 21 years old to rent a car.
Traffic flow is to the left side of the
road, as in Great Britain (Americans take
note!). Local driving standards, the risk
of accidents, the availability of emergency roadside service, quality and
frequency of signage, and enforcement
of traffic laws, generally meet or exceed
the standards of the United States. Visitors must obtain a temporary driver’s
license, easily granted upon presentation of a valid state driver’s license and
payment of a small fee, at a car rental
agency or police station.
Be aware that laws against driving while intoxicated are strictly
enforced. Don’t drink and drive. Take a
taxi instead. Seatbelt laws are also enforced and require the driver and all
passengers to be fastened in while in
motion.
