Set on the edge of the Cayman Trench is Grand Cayman, the largest island in a chain that also includes Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.  Depending upon where on the island you visit, you could be staying in the very commercialized and tourist-driven west coast which is never want for activity, or be surrounding by the undeveloped natural beauty of the rest of Grand Cayman where activities center on exploring the local Eco-system.

Perhaps because of the aforementioned Cayman Trench, scuba diving is the activity that Grand Cayman is best known for.  Under the sea the landscape is teeming with strong and colorful reef, hundreds of species of active marine animals, and dramatic nature-made architecture.  A huge majority of people who visit the island do so specifically to dive.  Still, there is more to the island, and tourists can make plans to participate in fishing trips, spend some time hitting the links, birding, and sightseeing.
