Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

It is a pity, though, that because of the choice of familiar dishes, many visitors don’t bother to taste the real Caymanian dishes. Fresh conch, turtle, and snapper are grilled, blackened, or cooked in mouth watering soups and spicy chowders. Don’t leave the islands without tasting cracked conch, or coconut fritters, or had a sunset beach barbeque of fresh caught snapper or sizzling jerk pork, grilled over fragrant pimento wood. The Caymans produce some of the world’s finest rum, and each bar or restaurant has its own special way of mixing up the perfect rum punch.
