Our illustrated travel guide will take you to the Cayman Islands, an island group in the Caribbean Sea, ninety miles south of Cuba. The outstanding coral reefs and beautiful clear waters have made the Cayman Islands a favorite destination of divers. Great beaches, fine restaurants and resorts make it an excellent tourist destination as well.
In addition to banking (the islands have no direct taxation, making them a popular incorporation site), tourism is a mainstay, aimed at the luxury market and catering mainly to visitors from North America.
Total tourist arrivals exceeded 2.19 million in 2006, although the vast majority of visitors arrive for single day cruise ship visits (1.93 million). About 90% of the islands' food and consumer goods must be imported.
The Caymanians enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world and the Cayman Islands are one of the richest islands not only in the Caribbean but in the world.
