Recommended Posts

Whats something that you always make sure to buy while in Grand Cayman that can't be purchased in the states?

Opening an off shore bank account would be cool.

They do a rum cake, but I'm not into rum at all...There's really nothing you can only get in any one place, anymore! Internet shopping has made that a bit obsolete!

Opening an offshore bank account is far from trivial, as I found out when I needed one for my business on Cayman. It's not like you can just walk into a bank and open one, believe me.

 

There are some brands of rum that I can't easily get in the USA, so I make sure to add to my home rum collection with that. There are some marinades that I can't get either (had this amazing spicy mango marinade the other day). I love Pickapeppa sauce, and make sure I bring some home with me (go great with Jamaican Meat Patties). Spending a little time in a grocery store like Kirks market will often result in stuff that I can't get easily at home.

 

Rum cakes, though, I can get in my local store in Upstate New York, so they aren't the novelty that they once were for me. Rum cream, though, is a wholly different matter - far more difficult to get stateside.

 

Caymanite jewelry is something that isn't common and kind of unique to the island. It's not that expensive either.
