WOW... yep that about sums it up! We have been to Oahu, Kauai and Maui numerous times and also Cancun and Playa del Carmen. As much as we have a special spot in our hearts for the north shore of Kauai, I have to say we have never enjoyed a tropical vacation as much as we did on Grand Cayman. My hubby, myself and our 12 and almost 16 year old daughters had a blast and the Caribbean was absolutely breathtaking. We love to be in the water so the hot humid air and crystal clear calm water on Seven Mile Beach was the perfect combo for us. We loved the people, the cleanliness of the island and the secure feeling we had while visiting there. We stayed 10 nights in connecting rooms at the Westin. Rented a car, took a couple of tours and overall had a great time. Staying there is on the expensive side, we did find it somewhat more expensive than trips to Hawaii, and definitely more than Mexico, but that was really the only downside for us.
