Shopping on Grand Cayman

Photo credit: © Vlad Krylov
 

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.

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you enjoy shopping for gifts consider visiting 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. Visitors can reach them at (345) 949-7428.

Another place to consider is Blue Iguana Souvenir Outlet, which is located less than a mile away from Too Hot Downtown. With over 1600 unique souvenir items available at Blue Iguana Souvenir Outlet, you can be certain that you'll find something "Cayman" for every person on your shopping list. The convenient location on the waterfront in George Town allows you to stop in as you tour the popular tourist area. Find them on South Church Street .

A third shop to consider is One 345 Swanky Shack. On the racks and shelves here you'll find clothing, accessories, and souvenirs that define the island. Guests can find them at 65 North Church Street.
