You wouldn’t be too far off the mark if you called fall “the Season of Festivals” on Grand Cayman. With the weather in much of the U.S. and Canada starting to take on a chill, it’s only natural that thoughts turn to milder and warmer climes to take part in everything from triathlons to plundering with Pirates.
Here’s a selection to rouse your interest, and get you thinking ahead to what a great combination a trip to Seven Mile Beach and Aqua Bay Club could make with a season favorite festival or event.
1st-31st – Cayman Restaurant Month
Cayman Restaurant Month 2014 is your chance to re-visit your favourite restaurant or branch out and try something new with great specials throughout the island.
2nd – The Cayman Islands Triathlon
All you need to enter is a bathing suit, a bicycle, helmet, and running shoes! Race solo, or as part of a team. www.triathlon.ky
