The Cayman Islands is a British over-seas territory comprising the Grand Cayman and two Sister Islands: Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Most of the tourist attractions and places to stay are on the bigger Grand Cayman Island, but the smaller ones are also travel destinations.
You’ll find the majority of the hotels in Grand Cayman, on the so called Seven Mile Beach.
Weather and tourist season
Nested between Cuba and Jamaica, the Cayman Islands have “true” Caribbean weather. There is little difference in temperature between the seasons and the weather is nice all year round. The wet season lasts from mid-May to October with afternoon showers quite common but they last just enough to cool the air a bit. During winter (peak season) temperatures average 75 F during the night and 68 F during the day, while during summer the average daily temperature is a bit higher (83 F).
