Two of us are returning to GC 23 Mar - 30 Mar 2013. This trip we will stay on 7 Mile Beach. Last trip we stayed down the road from Rum Point on North Side.
I think we are staying at George Town Villas, which is up the beach from GeorgeTown between Grand Cayman Marriot Beach Resort and Grand Cayman Beach Suites.
My first impression with this location is that we may not need to rent a car, as there is inexpensive bus service along the 7 Mile area. Any insight into do's and do not's on bus service? Does one pay exact change only in Cayman $ or U.S. $?
I haven't figured out how to get from airport to condo, but I know there are taxis at the curb outside the airport. Guidelines on taxi costs?
We arrive around 2:30 p.m., so we'll unload luggage at condo and then venture out to buy supplies (groceries, beer, etc.). Any recommendations on which store is closest for all this?
Now on to the bigger questions:
1. Is there any decent snorkeling in walking distance from this area.
2. Are there recommendations on inexpensive places to eat and drink in the immediate area?
Last trip did not enable visiting GeorgeTown, so I'm thinking it is close enough to walk to from condo. This will take some more checking. Any suggestions on things to see in GeorgeTown? I am not a shopper, I'm into history, old buildings, etc.
Anyone's thoughts on staying in this area?
I now have 7 months to fret about the trip.
