Grand Cayman: Family-Friendly Destination Populated by Sea Turtles, Stingrays, and Blue Iguanas
Early in 2012, the New York Times recommended Grand Cayman—the largest of the three Cayman Islands—as 1 of 10 winter getaways for families. The Times praised the island for its easy-to-access flights and kid-friendly activities, such as the Cayman Turtle Farm, which hatches and releases green sea turtles, and Stingray City, where visitors can touch dozens of Atlantic southern stingrays and feed them bits of squid. Adult-centric pursuits include the North Sound, Blue Tip, and Britannia golf courses, all located on the westernmost area of the island, known as West Bay.
Farther inland, you can find some of Grand Cayman’s most elusive residents—blue iguanas. Native only to Grand Cayman, the lizards were driven to the brink of extinction through habitat destruction and the introduction of cats and dogs to the island. But recent conservation efforts by the Blue Iguana Recovery Program have begun to restore the population. Today, hundreds of blue iguanas live in protected areas such as the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and the Salina Reserve. <p>
