Climate: Cayman is known for its warm tropical climate throughout the year, with temperatures seldom dropping below 70⁰ Fahrenheit. The rainy season is from May through October and although it can rain heavily in spells, typically, showers are of short duration and are often not island wide. Cayman’s hurricane season is from June through November.
Economy: Boasting a modern first-world economy, Grand Cayman is well known for its booming financial and tourism industries. Grand Cayman holds great appeal as a financial centre for US and other foreign investors and businesses, due to the absence of all major direct taxes and a well developed financial infrastructure.
