In the Cayman Islands driving is on the left side of the road. Caymanians are naturally friendly people and we are always happy and willing to lend a helping hand if you need directions and if you are really stuck, we have been known to drive there with you!

Renting mopeds and scooters are also a great way to explore the islands on your own.
