Visitors will find that business hours on the Cayman Islands greatly resemble business hours in the U.S.

Although it would be impossible to predict exactly when each and every business establishment will be open in the Cayman Islands, there are a few common opening and closing hours that vacationers can expect to see.  Some establishments also operate under seasonal hours -- that is, they stay open for longer hours during tourist season, and shorter hours (or even close completely on some or all days) in the off season.

You can expect most places to be closed on Sundays, and for banks, post offices, and government buildings to be shut down on national holidays. 


Standard Operating Hours in the Cayman Islands
Bank Monday through Thursday
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Post Offices Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Shopping Facilities Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Keep the above listing of business hours in mind as you plan your vacation, making sure to schedule outdoor activities around the hours when you know a particular business you will need to enter will be open.  Being aware of the typical operating hours of local businesses will certainly help you to maximize your time in the Cayman Islands.
