Comments [None]Our trip to Little Cayman began on January 2nd with a long day 2 stops to get there. We arrived at 5:30 pm just enough time to do alittle grocery shopping. We were very pleased with the accommodations at Paradise Villas. All units are ocean front with porches looking out to sea. Each had a bedroom, kitchenette and sitting area besides. The location was great, right next to the airport and next to the small shopping area. Bicycles were provided for island exploring. The units were very comfortable, clean and quite. Marc the manager goes out of his way to have a smooth running operation. Even the snorkling was good right off the little beach to the left of the property (lobsters, flouder, squid +).

Diving was with the Conch Club Divers. 2 am dives and afternoon dive was there schedule. A night dive could be arranges with another dive operation. Three dive masters on a boat and the number of people varied from 15 to twenty. Even with twenty people everything was well managed. Anne, Ben and Tim were excellent in the water finding small and unusual fish. A very well run operation. We were lucky to dive the North side on all 6 days which is unusual for that time of year. (This is the site of Blooy Bay Marine Park)

We usually ate and the Hungry Iguana (resident Iguana Janet usually there). The food was good to very good, often with leftovers for lunch the next day. We did go to Southern Cross for the Friday barbeque and it was excellent.

If you are looking for laid back and quite this is the place. Also Little Cayman is home to the red footed booby and there was an area to observe them which was a 3 minute bicycle ride away at the Trust House (don't miss the ice cream there).
