Grand Cayman is renowned for being one of the most family-friendly holiday destinations in the Caribbean. The small paradise island is essentially a sunny playground fringed with tropical waters and palm trees, overflowing in fun activities for children of all ages.
Pirates Week is a personal favourite for many of the locals in Cayman. It’s become a lovely tradition for families, teenagers and adults alike. It’s been going on for over 40 years and is still wildly popular.
The traditional activities begin with the ‘invasion’ of the pirates, capturing the Governor and taking him/her on-board their pirates ship. Everyone lines the streets in town to watch this light-hearted, pirate-filled showcase. Following this, the festivities are kicked off with a bang! Quite literally, as wonderful fireworks light up the night.
Here in Cayman we have several animal shelters and organisations that are focused on helping pups find their ‘forever home’, so if you’re thinking about adopting a puppy in Cayman, let me point you in the right direction.
