We were able to book a tour to the caves during our stay. It's a 45 minute drive from SMB, but highly recommended if you enjoy natural wonders!
The Cayman Safari tour vehicles aren't traditional - they're more like Jeeps which makes the excursion even more exciting. Upon our arrival at the caves, I was amazed to see a gift shop that looked like a cabana, compete with picnic tables and grass umbrellas. There were several items which were original (as I found many of the "touristy" shops had the same items).
The actual tour takes you through three caves, all a short walk from the parking area. Learning about the rock formations and botany from our local tour guide was priceless. The caves themselves are incredible; almost indescribably beautiful. For lovers of nature this is an absolute MUST!
Perhaps the best part and my recommendation to you: Ask for Owen. Native to the island, he informed us about Grand Cayman's history, politics, nature, food..etc. Not only was he educating our group, he was quite entertaining as well. I've never met anyone so happy and I will forever remember him gleefully singing "come along!" on our walks through the caves.
Great tour, great tour guide, AMAZING experience!
