Just got back from Stingray City. We went with Captain Marvin's. They're located right across the street from the Westin. I highly recommend them. Staff was super friendly and they were half the price compared to any place the hotel concierge suggested (and most places that I found online). We did the two stop tour (Stingray City and snorkeling) and it was $40 per person.

Ok I'll work on it. Put it in this thread or create a new one? This will be my first TR so wondering which method people prefer. Also, how do I embed pictures in if I'm not doing it on tapatalk?

The Westin in Grand Cayman now stocks Meal Mart Pre-made Kosher Meals, you must contact the concierge to arrange beforehand.

The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman offers premium Glatt Kosher meals from A Kosher Caterer in Miami, they will deliver to other hotels as well.

For more info on Kosher food and Yiddishkeit in Cayman Islands please visit www.jewish.ky

I noticed a drop in prices for all hotels in gc this summer, worth it to book cash imo. Is the holiday Inn near the chabad?

It's one of the places in the caribbean without zika, imo it's safe to go. A pregnant woman should consult with her obgyn

Anybody ever go to GC during Hurricane season?
I've been to some of the other islands during hurricane season, and it really didn't effect my stay that much...

Are you asking whether or not you should go or which tour company you should go with?
