Introduction

George Town

George Town is the capital and largest settlement on the Cayman Islands with a total population of roughly 25,000 inhabitants. It is located in the west of the main island, Grand Cayman, and is a major financial centre, not only for the Cayman Islands but for many foreign companies and there are hundreds of banks located here. Apart from that, the town functions as a major port for cruise ships as well as cargo and as a consequence all the amenities tourists are dying for when they finally leave a ship are here: shopping malls, bars and restaurants. Apart from that, it is not a particularly rewarding place to visit but most people will find themselves in or near the city when arriving by plane or boat.

Weather

George Town has a perfect climate with warm and humid weather with almost constant sea breezes. Temperatures hoover around 28 to 30 degrees Celcius during the day and 24 degrees at night. The months of June to September are slightly warmer. During these months, extending into November is the rainy season on the other hand, with a small chance of a hurricane passing by now and then. December to April is the dry and slightly cooler period which is a good but popular time to visit. May and November are good months to visit if you want to avoid crowds, high prices and very bad weather.
