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're hoping to find some gifts you might want to try Too Hot Downtown, which is situated in downtown Georgetown. A nice mixture of fun apparel, souvenirs, and gifts, Too Hot is all about offering shoppers unique options and are particularly proud of their T-Shirt selection. If you have questions and want to call in advance, do so at (345) 949-7428.

A second possibility 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. They're located on South Church Street .

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