Grand Cayman was the least favorite of the four ports we visited. Last year when we went I had a great experience swimming with stingrays and this time I wanted to see more of the island. It's not a terrible place, don't get me wrong. In fact, it's beautiful. It's just the the other 3 ports are spectacular ports. I signed up for an island tour with my mom, dad, Grandpa and Missy. The tour would show us around the Western Side of the island. We also got to visit Hell, a sea turtle far and the Tortuga Rum Cake Factory. We started with the sea turtle farm which was brilliant! The sea turtles ranged from 8 weeks old to over 100 years old. The old fellows were massive, it was so cool to see them swimming around.
Next we went to the Tortuga Rum Cake Factory which was literally the size of a convience store and it was as packed as Target on Black Friday. I decided I would pass on rum cake sampling as I've tasted it before and wandered around a nearby petrified reef instead. I got some great pictures and had some time to myself, which was rather nice.
After people finished getting their rum cake fix, we went to Hell, which was the biggest tourist trap I have ever visited in my life. A Puerto Rican man dressed in jeans, a red cape and hand made devil horns walked around asking people "What the hell are you doing here?" It was lame-o.
