Unfortunately, the Cayman Islands do not offer camping or specifically eco-touristic accommodations.

Travelers interested in exploring nature can take advantage of scuba diving packages, especially those offered by resorts on Little Cayman. Little Cayman is definitely the getaway island of the trio. On this island you'll take a step away from the hustle and bustle of Grand Cayman and its popular resorts. You'll find yourself nestled among natural wonders and close to some great diving.

Your best course of action for exploring the natural side of the Cayman Islands may be to make it a plan to visit as many of the National Trust Heritage Properties as possible. The Cayman Islands National Trust has created a list of both natural and historical sites that are important to the island's culture and heritage. The natural attractions on this list include bird habitats, beaches, trails, parks, and other reserve areas. You can obtain a list of all the sites from the National Trust Headquarters and Visitors Center on Grand Cayman when you arrive, or learn more about them by visiting our guide to Nature in the Cayman Islands.

Trails through swamplands, gardens, and preserves are also a great way to explore the island. This way you will be able to see the island's flora and fauna existing in their natural habitat, plus enjoy the fresh air and typically pleasant weather.

Another way to learn about animals in the Cayman Islands is by visiting some attractions set aside specifically to teach guests about animal life. A few of these include Dolphin Discovery, where patrons will gain the opportunity to swim with the dolphins, and the Cayman Turtle Farm, which houses a large number of the endangered Green Sea Turtle.

While avid campers may be discouraged with the lack of camping opportunities in the Cayman Islands, those who are simply interested in getting a little closer to nature can easily find numerous ways to do so during their vacation on the islands.
