The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory located in the western Caribbean Sea. The archipelago consists of three islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. The Cayman Islands are known for their pristine beaches, clear blue waters, and world-class diving and snorkeling sites.
The official language spoken in the Cayman Islands is English. The islands have a diverse population, with a significant expat community, so other languages such as Spanish and Portuguese are also spoken.
The primary currency used in the Cayman Islands is the Cayman Islands Dollar (KYD). However, the US Dollar is widely accepted, and most businesses will accept either currency. The exchange rate between the two currencies is fixed at KYD 1.00 = USD 1.20.
The Cayman Islands are in the Eastern Standard Time Zone, which is 5 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-5). Daylight Saving Time is not observed in the Cayman Islands.
The flight time from the UK to the Cayman Islands varies depending on the departure and arrival cities. On average, it takes around 11-12 hours to reach the Cayman Islands from London, including a layover in a US city such as Miami or New York. The exact flight time may vary depending on factors such as the airline, departure airport, and layover time.
The main airport in the Cayman Islands is the Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM), which is located on Grand Cayman Island, about 3.2 kilometers (2 miles) from the capital, George Town. The airport serves both domestic and international flights, with many direct flights from major US cities. Its address is 71 Owen Roberts Dr, George Town, Cayman Islands.
