Shopping has always been a favored pastime among tourists on Grand Cayman thanks to many items which are duty free and the diverse nature of available items throughout the island. However, since cruising to the island has become so popular in the last two decades, shops have really upped their game, making this a top destination for shopping in the region.
Here's what you should be on the lookout for when you are looking for deals on Grand Bahama: time pieces, fragrances, china, crystal, fashion wear, and fine jewelry. These items are often 30 percent less expensive than the country in which they originate, but thanks to the rate of exchange may be more expensive than in the United States. Discuss this with the shop keeper and many will be willing to make you a deal. Don't overlook local goods either, authentic treasure coin jewelry is a fun offering, but there are also fine pieces of art, caymanite, and of course, rum.
If you're hoping to find some souvenirs consider heading to Too Hot Downtown, which is located in downtown Georgetown. Too Hot in downtown is open everyday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Customers can reach them at (345) 949-7428.
Another option is Blue Iguana Souvenir Outlet, which is located less than a mile to the southeast of Too Hot Downtown. It would be impossible to list everything sold at Blue Iguana, but there are a few things you will definitely find there, including classics like island-style t-shirts and caps, magnets, coffee mugs, post cards, and shot glasses. You will find them on South Church Street .
A third option is One 345 Swanky Shack. New York Times Travel called it one of the "best kept secrets in the Caribbean." This shop is the island's premier shop featuring locally created designs that encompass all of your clothing, accessories, music, and rum needs for men, women, and children. Visitors can find them at 65 North Church Street.
