Fun Local Shopping
Duty Free Shopping
Cayman is a duty-free destination which means there are many exciting opportunities for you to save on items such as watches, china and crystal, perfumes and fine jewellery, including authentic treasure coin jewellery. Prices average about 25 percent below regular retail price tags; although some goods run as much as 30 percent below US retail prices. In addition to traditional duty-free selections, diverse and interesting shopping – from chic European fashions to outstanding local art – delights visitors in speciality stores, hotel boutiques and shopping plazas. What’s more, there is no sales tax!
There is no end to the luxury goods available but Grand Cayman also caters to the needs of those interested in specialist areas such as diving and art.
Arts & Crafts
A growing interest in developing local arts and crafts has led to the opening of galleries featuring local and Caribbean art. Underwater photography services and an excellent selection of underwater photos and prints framed as art pieces are available as well. You can also arrange for custom underwater videos and photographs of your own diving and snorkelling experiences – a unique souvenir of your Cayman vacation!
You will be surprised by our selection of interesting and unusual shopping. The Tortuga Rum Company, for example, offers 10 blends of rums, Taste of the Caribbean sections featuring samples of the Tortuga Rum Cake, Tortuga label gourmet food products and a wide variety of Caribbean specialty foods, coffees, spices and sauces.
An amazing variety of local items await you as well. These include shell jewellery, thatch work, wood carvings, Caymanian-style birdhouses, crocheted items, pepper sauces, tropical fruit jams, honey, Caymanite (Cayman’s semi-precious stone) jewellery and sculpture, and a unique selection of antique and treasure coin jewellery.
