|This is a good topic to read for easy access to many resources for our most highly valued Cayman Islands restaurants. I accumulated several of our most frequently asked questions about Cayman Island restaurants and consolidated them into this topic for easy reference. I will try to keep this topic updated as often as possible so it always contains the most current information.
If you have not already rented a vehicle, you will receive generous discounts from Andy's and Economy for being an Activity Guide member. I always encourage every visitor to rent a vehicle to to see all of the best sites, attractions, activities and restaurants on Grand Cayman; if you are staying in one of the outer districts like East End or Northside a vehicle becomes outright critical, unless you just want to spend your entire vacation sitting on your beach; not that there's anything wrong with that but I do believe it to be a huge disservice for anyone to come to the Caribbean islands with the greatest diversity of water sports; wide variety of exclusive attractions; unparalleled activities and world class cuisine, to divorce themselves from the overwhelming majority of that owing to lack of a $30/day car rental. However, if for whatever reason you are adamant about not renting a vehicle, even for a day or two, then you can still save money and see some of the nearer attractions to you by using my friend Chris at
Holiday Taxi. Whether arriving by air or by sea, Chris will provide the lowest rates and give all Activity Guide members and readers a 10% discount.
If this all sounds a bit complicated, it's really not. We have many features here at our forums specifically designed to facilitate your vacation planning; such as our handy must do feature where you can create your own personal must do lists of everything that appeals to you while browsing through the topics and seeing the information, reviews, photos and videos. Then just print your own personal must do list prior to departure and it will act as a handy personal reference guide to save you valuable vacation time.
Note to Cruise Passengers:
Activity Guide magazine is not distributed to or near the cruise ship docks. To take advantage of our many significant savings, simply view the current issue of Activity Guide online:
and print any coupons that appeal to you. A few pennies of ink and paper will typically save you 10% on activities, taxis and most restaurants. The average party of three experiencing two activities and lunch can easily save $100 or more by simply booking everything direct and mentioning that you are an Activity Guide member. You can roughly calculate your savings by selecting your activities and then subtracting 10%.
Anyone requiring assistance or instruction pertaining to your personal must do lists will find all of the details HERE. If for any reason you are not able to locate the information you need, simply post your question in that topic and you will usually receive a reply in a matter of hours.
