The Cayman Islands are not a particularly complicated stretch of roads to navigate, but finding what you want to do can suck hours out of your day. If you can, talk with your travel agent or hotel liason about ideas for things to do. If you’re already on the island, or have no other contacts, you will need some outside help. Fortunately, there are plenty of applications you can use to navigate.

GPS Maps

Most car rentals in Cayman Islands can come outfitted with GPS systems you can use to maneuver around the island. These maps are updated frequently, and will help you find new roads and closures that old maps may have omitted. Be sure to update the firmware for these maps, as new versions of the software may come with exciting features. GPS units can also record places of interest, which are helpful when you or the next user turns the GPS unit on in the future.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality apps like “Layar” can display interesting tidbits about the world around you. These visuals can clue you into historical facts, give you reviews of restaurants and provide a general heads up display with more detailed information. Still in its fledgling stages of development, this technology won’t give you step by step instructions on what to do. It is a fun program to use if you’re at a loss for things to do or places to visit. You might learn something new.

Cayman Visitor App

The official application of the Cayman Islands is like a compendium of things to do. It has “Open Table” functionality for booking tables at restaurants, and it comes with a currency calculator to help with conversions. It’s a helpful application that tries to point you in the right direction, and it’s free. If you’re looking for recommended dive sets, daily alerts and reviews of popular destinations, the Cayman Visitor App is a good idea to download.

Final Thoughts

Getting around the island will require a Grand Cayman rent a car, in addition to maps and navigation equipment. Remember that you’re on vacation, so if you feel stressed or bored, try something new! The Cayman Islands always have something going on, especially on the beach. Don’t forget to check points of interest online, and seek out advice from other websites too.
