Living in and working in the Cayman Islands is a truly privileged way of life. Even your drive to work can be a pleasurable experience, enjoying sea views along the way, a far cry from the hustle and bustle of city living. Nearly half of the work-force in Grand Cayman is employed from overseas so you will get the opportunity to meet plenty of people who are also new to the Island.

The lifestyle in Cayman is extremely casual and outdoor oriented. Most establishments on Island welcome casual clothing, although shoes and shirts are always required. There are several high-end restaurants and events that will require slightly more formal attire, so it is a good idea to check when you call to make reservations or purchase a ticket.

Shopping

Despite being a small Caribbean Island, Grand Cayman offers many of the advantages of a large city. There are a number of shopping centers located around the Island from downtown George Town, along Seven Mile Beach, in West Bay and East End offering a variety of services and stores. The supermarkets in Cayman are comparable in size and style to those found in the US and UK, stocking a wide range of International foods catering to the many different nationalities living on Island.

For locally grown produce and products you should check out the local Farmer’s Market held at the Agricultural Grounds in Lower Valley. The market is open Saturday mornings from 7am – mid-day or at Camana Bay every Wednesday afternoon from mid-day -7pm. Camana Bay is also home to Bay Market, a gourmet food store that focuses on selling a wide range of organic items. Fresh fish can be purchased on the waterfront in downtown George Town where fishermen display and sell their daily catch.

Television:

There are many options to suit even the most avid TV addict.

  • Cable – Weststar: There are three tiers of television service: Digital Starter for CI$39 per month which includes 18 channels; Digital Limited for CI$60 per month which includes 39 channels and Digital Classic for CI$72 which has 49 channels with the option to add various channels at an additional cost.
  • Satellite – Dish Direct TV: Satellite TV services with up to around 500 channels including high-definition. The Basic Plan costs around CI$65.00 per month for 120 channels or the Everything Plan for CI$125.00 includes over 280 channels

Radio:

Local radio stations offer something for everyone, with just about every type of music represented.

Giving back to the Community:

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and give back to the community at the same time. There are many charitable organizations on Island who would welcome your assistance. Look out for the many fundraising events held on Island, from Charity Runs, to Dog Shows, Balls and Concerts to name a few.

  • Cayman Islands Humane Society: Once you are settled into your new accommodation you may wish to consider adopting a new fury family member but check first with your landlord in case of any restrictions. The Cayman Islands Humane Society are always looking for potential foster families and people to adopt the cats and dogs they house all year round. Or sign up to become a volunteer which is a great way to make likeminded friends and help our four legged pals at the same time. Dog walking generally takes place on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
  • The Cayman Islands Red Cross: Welcoming volunteers with or without specific skill sets, the staff work hard by helping vulnerable people in crisis. Find out more here Cayman Islands Red Cross.

You can also volunteer at several other establishments on Island including The Pines Retirement Home, the Cayman Islands Cancer Society or become a mentor for teenagers through the Chamber of Commerce Mentoring Program.
