Guests staying in Cayman Kai, North Side, or the East End will definitely need to rent a car. Grand Cayman is a foreign country and we do not have Uber or Lyft. We suggest booking a rental car early as inventory can become scarce during peak travel seasons. All major rental car companies are located across the street from the airport.
We encourage our Seven Mile Beach guests to consider a day trip to the eastern districts to discover the quieter side of Grand Cayman and explore the best snorkeling sites along the north coast.
All rental car companies offer baby and toddler car seats. You may need to request one in the “Additional Comments” field when reserving on-line. Call directly prior to arrival to confirm your reservation. Marshall’s child car seats are complimentary. Most other companies charge a per day fee of approx. CI$10 ($12.25 US).
