A panoramic drive along the South Sound area offers a glimpse of some old-style Cayman gingerbread homes. You will pass through the district of Bodden Town -- the first capital of Grand Cayman. Notice the Guard House -- your guide will explain its historical significance.
You're headed to the newest natural attraction of Cayman's north side. Hidden in the lush tropical forest are three beautiful caves. A specialist cave guide will lead you on a 45-minute walk through the caves, believed to have been the hideouts of pirates back in the day. Is there still some treasure hidden here? Maybe. But for today, the great treasure you'll take home is spectacular photos of ultra-cool 'rooms' and some wild and wonderful stalagmites and stalactites. These calcite structures formed thousands of years ago, and you will understand why they are called the Crystal Caves. Birds, iguanas and fruit bats populate the caves, but all tend to be very shy and have little interest in meeting you up close. Listen to your guide's in-depth explanation of the caves' history and how the owners developed the area for decades. A clear, mirror-like subterranean lake marks the grand finale.
You will exit the cave and return to the ship.
Wear comfortable walking shoes.
