If Christopher Columbus had had his way, the Cayman Islands would still be called Las Tortugas. On the explorer’s last trip to the “New World,” he saw the islands’ large sea turtles and decided to name what became Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman in honor of the massive reptiles. It was Sir Francis Drake who came to the islands in the late 16th century and renamed them as the Caymans because of the animal population he was most impressed by – the alligators.
The Cayman Islands are known for their natural beauty, and in addition to sea turtles and alligators, you’ll find parrots, stingrays and the very rare Blue Iguana on the islands. With such incredible wildlife and beaches, Grand Cayman Islands snorkeling is a must for any visitor. There are even two shipwrecks for snorkelers and divers to explore.
