Cayman Christmas !

It's Christmas time on the island! What Cayman lacks in snowflakes, it makes up for in thousands of colored lights! From the town centers to the residential areas, everyone goes all out with bright lights - a sight to see especially when flying in during the evening hours. Do take the time to plan a night time drive around the island - you will be amazed at the detailed light displays!

When here this season make sure you plan to visit Camana Bay, the newly developed town center, offering 5 restaurants, a deli, coffee shop, ice cream parlour, movie theatre, retail shops all within a beautiful upscale, island-style setting.

On certain nights of the season it actually snows throughout the open air paseo! Beautiful lighted fountains add to the festive fun. Moonlight and Movies is another fun kid friendly passtime offered some evenings at Camana Bay. The Wednesday Market Night is fun for local crafts, food, steel pan music. Just a lovely place to take a leisurely stroll through and enjoy all the sights.

Another fun and festive place to see holiday displays is at the Ritz Carlton resort - The Ritz is just a 5 minute walk up the beach from Beachcomber and the friendly staff at the Ritz makes all visitors feel welcome. The Ritz is always decked out in its holiday finest - fun to walk through the common areas to see the spectacular floral arrangements, art gallery, displays. Go up for an evening cocktail or try any one of the 6 fabulous restaurants. Go for lunch at Periwinkles then head to Silver Rain spa for a luxurious spa treatment or plan a set of tennis on one of the 4 courts offered (1 grass and 3 clay). The Ritz offers a wide variety of children's programs as well,the Ambassador of the Environment program is not only fun for the kids but educational - depending on the choice of activity you choose. On some evenings the Ritz offers open air movies for families, next to Periwinkles restaurant - marshmellow roasting included! The Teddy Bear Tea is offered from Dec 18 12:00 - 2:00 for families with young children. The Ritz just knows how to make everything special!

If you are here December 26, think about participating in the, always popular, "Dashing Through the Sand" beach fun run. It's all about the tee shirt and having fun, fun, fun - free breakfast at the end! 7:30 AM behind Grand Cayman Beach Suites (the old Hyatt) and ending with breakfast at Tiki Beach (Public Beach). If it's too early to get up and out... at least cheer on the participants as they pass by Beachcomber! It's a very Jolly bunch!
Wherever you are spending the holidays - we send our very "warmest" wishes to you all for a wonderful, blessed Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year, and hopefully, in the not too distant future..... See you on the Beach !
