Grand Cayman in February is BEAUTIFUL. As a result, rooms get booked early. We recommend you BOOK YOUR ROOM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you think there is a chance you will be attending the wedding.
We have made accommodation arrangements at the following location, located within 2 miles of where our wedding will be held:
Sunshine Suites Resort
We have a group rate with Sunshine Suites, which is very highly rated on Tripadvisor (“Best deal on Cayman”) AND provides some of the more affordable rates on the island. The rooms are based on availability. We do not have rooms blocked off, so please book soon.

General Hotel/Housing Options
There are many resorts, condos, and private house rentals on the island. If you prefer to book accommodations outside of our room block, feel free. However, we recommend you stay on or near SEVEN MILE BEACH during the wedding festivities. It’s a small island, but staying East of George Town could result in driving times of 30 minutes or more – that’s way too long of a commute to party! Feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com if you have questions regarding accommodation locations on the island.
A few other locations we recommend are:
For those curious to check out Cayman’s by-owner rentals, airbnb.com and vrbo.com also offers some great options. Grouping up with some friends (or making some new ones at our wedding) can make VRBO’s rates very affordable. Once again, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding location.
The main airport in the Cayman Islands, Owen Roberts International Airport (airport code GCM), is located on the largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman. There are more than 55 weekly flights into the Cayman Islands including 28 flights each week between Miami and Grand Cayman.
Airlines servicing Grand Cayman from the US include American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, Cayman Airways, United, and US Airways. More information regarding flight schedules can be found here http://www.caymanislands.ky/planatrip/gettingherebyair.aspx.
We recommend www.kayak.com or www.hipmunk.com for flight fare comparison searches, but we also recommend booking directly on the website of the airline you would like to fly on as they may have more flexible travel policies than Kayak or Hipmunk.
For those guests interested in exploring the smaller Cayman Islands before or after the wedding festivities, inter-island service between Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman is provided by Cayman Airways and Cayman Express, making Cayman Islands travel quick and easy. Cayman Airways provides daily jet service to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, while Cayman Express provides service four times daily to both islands from Grand Cayman.
Taxis are available at Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman. This information is available from the taxi dispatcher at the curb.
During your stay, taxis are also readily available from all Cayman Islands resorts.
View for a list of sample taxi fares from the airport to resorts all around the island. These rates may be from 2007 (apparently updating information like this is done on ‘island time’) but it will give you somewhat of an idea. http://www.caymanairports.com/userfiles/file/Taxi%20Rates%20and%20Conditions.pdf
We will be providing transportation to the wedding festivities; however, should you wish to rent a car there a number of rental car companies located on the island.
Rental car companies operating adjacent to the Airport are listed below. Please note you may want to look up information via the internet to avoid international phone charges. If you prefer to call, buying Skype phone credits is a cheaper way to make calls to Grand Cayman.
