Ahoy mates! The pirates argh here!

One of Cayman’s favorite national festivals, Pirates Week, is finally here and Plantana is the ideal place to stay during this time. In its 41st year, the festival commences with district heritage days featuring a host of cultural activities, traditional foods and music. Check out the district calendar hereand take don’t miss the kick off at East End today! 

When at Plantana, you can choose to spend Halloween eating candy corn or sipping a Bloody Mary on your private screened lanai, or, join the many locals and visitors who will be doing the monster mash in jaw-dropping costumes at nearby venues. Leading up to the All Hallows Eve, you can take in films like The Addams Family on October 27th at the Camana Bay Cinema or if you need something scarier to mark the occasion, hold on tight to your popcorn and watch the cult classic The Exorcist on October 30th in their VIP theater. Both films will get you in the spirit of things!

After completing 6 weeks of works in our condos and around our gardens and grounds, Plantana is ready to welcome you back (or for the first time) to its perfect slice of paradise on Seven Mile Beach. Staff is in full swing, looking forward to the arrival of Fall guests who come for tranquil beach and pool days after a fun-filled summer.

 

Cocktail lovers! Cayman Cocktail Weekis returning for its 6th affair, Friday October 19th to Friday, October 26th. During this weeklong festival, you will sip and savor classic drinks remixed as well as brand new, locally inspired concoctions. This is the ultimate celebration of the Cayman Islands’ cocktail industry and adds another dimension to your stay with us at Plantana.  

 

In the event you needed any more proof that Cayman is the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean, the month of October is dedicated to restaurants – paradise for foodies.  This year, the Cayman Islands Tourism Association has teamed up with 19 of the island’s favorite restaurants to offer fantastically low priced menus for 4 weeks straight.

Plantana Condos has had another successful year and we are proud of our diligent team who uphold the CaymanKind way of life and share that spirit of community with our guests. 

Thanksgiving conjures up images of delicious homemade dishes and family time reflecting on the year and celebrating the blessings we have received. It’s also a time of long waits in bumper to bumper traffic on the highways, with millions of Americans making their way home. So, why not avoid that stress and unwind with your loved ones at your ‘beach home away from home’ at Plantana.

Music, comedy, art, and delectable cuisine. That recipe has all the ingredients for the perfect getaway to the Caribbean. And you’re in luck with the inaugural edition of KAABOO Cayman taking place just a few months from now - February 15-16, 2019. The event, with all its allure, is all happening within walking distance of Plantana Condos but just far enough for you to enjoy some quiet downtime on Seven Mile Beach between the festivities.

Fall is one of the best times to visit Cayman. Not only do you get the opportunity to escape plunging temperatures and bask in the sunshine at Plantana, you can also enjoy some of Cayman’s most entertaining events.

Summer is winding down and Plantana guests are returning home to work and school, while our team takes a moment to reflect on what a fruitful season it has been. We saw so many of our wonderful repeat guests and also welcomed new repeat-guests-in-the-making to the property, and now, we are setting the stage to do it all over again for the fall and winter seasons!

Question: When was the last time you enjoyed a good games night with your friends?

Answer: Probably too long if you haven’t enjoyed one of those on offer around Grand Cayman!

The waves are lapping, the birds are singing, the trees are swaying, the reptiles are playing…wait, reptiles?! When some of us think of reptiles, it conjures up thoughts of snapping Caimans and slithering snakes. 

The beauty of the Cayman Islands is second to none. From the vibrant flora and fauna that call these Islands home to the mesmerizing shades of blue Caribbean Sea to the intricate perfection that is the underwater world, Cayman has been inspiring generations of artists to create some of their most eye catching artwork. 

When in Cayman, do as the locals do and enjoy the delights of happy hour, island style. That’s one of the ways to bring in the weekend as you enjoy our slice of paradise.

At Plantana, we are family. Whether you choose to spend some downtime in our section of paradise or show up each day to ensure others are comfortably settling in at the condo of their choice, there’s an undeniable sense of togetherness at Plantana.

Some of the best memories are made at summer camps, where kids experience engaging, new learning environments and make lifelong friendships.  Cayman has a variety of camps to suit all interests and ages and organizers are always happy to include young visitors to the islands.  Camps are held throughout the summer months and cater to various budgets, so there is potential for limitless fun and adventure while you visit Cayman.

We love seeing our Plantana Family have all their talents recognized and we couldn’t be more proud of our Guest Services Manager, Rita Estevanovich. 

As tempting as it would be to spend your entire vacation on the perfection that is Seven Mile Beach at Plantana, it is worth setting aside a road trip day to North Side to taste fresh local dishes and even food from afar, discover unique hot spots and admire the stunning, natural beauty of the district.

While the Cayman Islands may not experience extreme seasonal changes in winter, spring, summer and autumn, we still have many different seasons that we get excited about and enjoy throughout the year.
