How to Adapt to Island Life in the Grand Caymans

June 13, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Summary: The Grand Cayman Islands are beautiful, but living there will require some adjustments. 

Condos in Cayman Islands offer some of the most exotic beach side living you can find anywhere in the world, but you must be prepared for the move. A lot of things about life on the island differ completely from anything on the mainland. You have to determine the cost of living, including the rent and your day-to-day needs. This short list of preparations should be considered before you make the move to Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac or Little Cayman.

Keeping in Touch

One of the first things you’ll notice about moving to the Cayman Islands is that, while it’s beautiful you can’t take your friends and family with you. Keeping in touch will require a good Wi-Fi connection and a free program like Skype. You can make calls to and from your friends and family for free, as long as they are using the same system. International calling cards are also useful, and offer a lower rate than a standard phone line (international calling cards are not available for purchase on island, so be sure to bring them with you). You can also revive the lost art of letter writing if all else fails.


The food on the island is reminiscent of the main land, but you’ll find it to be just a bit pricier. This is because the island relies almost exclusively on its ability to import goods from elsewhere. Even though Cayman Islands and Grand Cayman real estate are tax free, you’ll still pay a bit more for the food you consume, and those of you on a budget can easily find everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal, from one of the many grocery stores on island.
