What to pack

Grand Cayman enjoys a temperate weather year-round.  The average temperature is 84F.  In the summer months you will find 89F, in the winter months 80F is about average.  We do receive a couple of cold fronts in the winter, with a chilling temperature of 72F during the evening.  Restaurants do not have strict dress codes so you will not need to bring a sport coat unless "that's your thing".  We put a quick list together for you for essentials, of course we didn't include everything so don't get mad at us if you forgot to pack underwear.....

Passports etc.

United States, British and Canadian citizens, and citizens of British Dependent Territories do not require passports to enter the Cayman Islands, but must present proof of citizenship (passport or original or a notarized copy of a birth certificate and current photo ID. A driver's license or voter's registration card alone is not sufficient) and a return or ongoing airline ticket. (Please note that according to a new US law passed in 1996, a Voter's Registration Card is no longer considered valid proof of US citizenship and is therefore not valid ID for re-entry into the US.)

 

Effective January 8, 2007, the U.S. Government will require that all of our Cayman Islands guests, including U.S. citizens, be in possession of a valid passport when returning to the United Sates of America. Non American Citizens should contact their respective governments to obtain further details. For more information or to get a passport application, visit http://www.travel.state.gov

 

Citizens of any of the following countries do not require a Visa; Americans, British, Canadians, a citizen of another Commonwealth country : Andorra, Argentina, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Irish Republic, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mexico, Monaco, Norway, Oman, Portugal, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland & Venezuela.

Applications for Visas can be collected from your nearest British Consulate or High Commission Office. Entry is granted for up to six months. Resident aliens of the US who show a valid US Alien Registration Card (green card) may be permitted to enter and remain in the Cayman Islands for up to 30 days.

No immunization certificates are necessary for entering the Cayman Islands, you do not need immunization shots to visit the Cayman Islands, we have no airborne or insect carrying diseases.

Customs

Arriving visitors may bring in duty-free any personal items for use while on vacation. In addition, visitors 18 and older can bring in duty-free either one-liter of alcohol, four liters of wine or one case of beer (not exceeding eight liters) and 200 cigarettes, or 25 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco. Returning residents are allowed CI$300 worth of goods duty free. This privilege does not apply to visitors. Gifts brought into Cayman may also be subject to duty. Books and camera equipment are allowed as duty free items.

How to get there

We strongly recommend renting a car during your stay at The Reef or recommend at least a 3 day rental.  Cico Avis rent-a-car has the best deal for Timeshare visitors.  Most guests rent a vehicle for the whole week but you can rent a vehicle mid week by taking the shuttle from Tortuga Club to the Avis airport office (departs each morning to George Town at 9am) cost $3 per person.  The rental car can then be returned at the airport the day you will be flying back home.

If you rented a car from the Cico Avis rent-a-car Airport office, pick up groceries before you get to the resort.

Don't forget, groceries stores are closed on Sunday, but you can buy all necessities at gas stations across the Island.

If you did not rent a car a taxi ride to Royal Reef will cost approx $80.

Electrical, water, phones, computers

The Cayman Islands run on 110v, the plugs are North American outlets, water is potable Island wide.

Phones are all direct dialing worldwide.

Connecting to the internet is easily done, the resort will give you instructions on how to do it.  Cost ci18 per min.  Tortuga Club offers a business center where you can get online without a laptop. Cost $8 an hour.

There is a $10 per day Resort Tax added to your bill at the end of your stay.
