Though there is truth in the statement that Cayman offers visitors approximately 360 days of sunshine, if you happen to be visiting during the 60 odd days of rain and thunderclouds, you might find yourself at a loss for things to do. Fortunately, there's more to Cayman than sun, sea and sand. Below are a few of the indoor activities you can enjoy during the odd rain shower.
Camana Bay Cinema
When it's raining out, your first instinct is usually to crawl back under the covers with a hot cup of cocoa and binge-watch a Netflix series. Unfortunately in Cayman, even when it rains it's humid and hot, which quickly proves problematic on what would otherwise be considered a duvet day. Luckily, Cayman's Camana Bay boasts a world-class Cinema where you can get hideout and wait out the rain showers which will most likely not last longer than a couple of hours.
Museum and Art Gallery Tour
Get cultured. And we don't mean in the overindulge in cheese-curd kind of way. Although we do support the notion. Rather head out on a museum tour of Cayman, educating yourself on Cayman's rich and vibrant history from pirates to parrots. Learn everything there is to know about our vibrant nation: Cayman heritage, history and local customs.
Local Food Tour
Explore all that the food capital has to offer by heading out on your very own Cayman food journey. Make your way down the Seven Mile strip or head to edges of the island, in every direction you'll be delighted at the local, hidden or not-so-hidden food gems to be found. If the thought of being left to your own devices is not appealing, food tour operators are aplenty. Whether you are seeking an authentic local dining experience or 5-star haute cuisine, Cayman is famed as the food capital of the Caribbean and what better day to test the statement than on one when it's pouring down with rain.
Tortuga Rum and Rum Cake Factory Tour and Tasting
Though you may know and recognize the Rum company, you may not aware that Tortuga offers visitors the perfect rainy day experience. Tour the original Tortuga Rum cake Factory (opened in 1984) and grounds, learn all about the fascinating history of Tortuga Rum Company, their locally produced products and receive a brief history. Conclude your day with a delicious Rum and Rum Cake tasting. Come for the Rum, stay for the friendly faces.
Cayman Islands Motor Museum & Cracked Conch
You don't need to be a car enthusiast to appreciate the beautiful and impressive classic car collection on showcase at the Cayman Motor Museum. It's the perfect activity to pass the time on a rainy day and conveniently located across from Cracked Conch where the whole family can enjoy a delicious drink at their Bubble bar or fine food from their critically acclaimed kitchen.
