Best in Cayman

Hello! My name is Val Kegel and I feel very fortunate - I absolutely love my job, and I absolutely love the Cayman Islands! As a flight attendant for a major airline for 44 years, I have spent the last ten years flying to and from Grand Cayman several times a week. During my flights I find out first hand the best of the best of Cayman. During my flights I have asked thousands of passengers five questions:

  • Where did you stay on the island?
  • What businesses gave you the best service?
  • What was your best restaurant experience?
  • What was your favorite activity?
  • What was your best Cayman shopping experience?

Passengers give such good and frank advice; I summarized their comments in a Fun Fact Sheet which reflects the best of Cayman. I hand this out to all my passengers traveling to Cayman. One thing about passengers, they will tell you what is hot and what is not! The popularity of the Fun Fact Sheet led to this web site, which offers so much more. So enjoy and I hope you fall in love with the Cayman Islands too!
