It has become somewhat of a tradition for Ms. Dana to celebrate her birthday during her Plantana vacation, and this year, she marked her 80th in the company of her Plantana friends and members of her family who flew in for the special occasion.

This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 1st and while that might feel like ages away, there are many reasons while you should get ahead of the game and book your flight to Grand Cayman from now.

What better way to show your loved ones how you feel than spending Valentine’s Day here in the Cayman Islands? With stunning scenery at Plantana and a plethora of restaurants, shops, florists and spas nearby, you have everything you need to keep your loved one sweet. 

Ditch the snow, wind and rain and replace it with sun, sea and sand at Plantana’s idyllic spot on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach. With low temperatures all over the northern hemisphere, what better way to get away from winter than an escape to the warm sunshine of the Caribbean? 

Warming up your winter in Cayman has never looked better. With events such as the Taste of Cayman Food and Drink Festival set for January 27 2018, you won’t want to miss out. Situated on the festival green at Camana Bay, Cayman’s melting pot of high quality local and international fare is a short drive from Plantana, Seven Mile Beach.

January marks Grand Cayman`s biggest culinary celebrations, to kick off the new year allow your taste buds to explode and run amok as you indulge in an unparalleled gastro honeypot of food adventures coupled with legendary cocktails and fine wine at Cayman Cookout. Now in its 10th year, this exclusive and interactive event showcases over 40 different experiences from cooking demonstrations, experience food tastings, culinary tours, gourmet dinners, wine pairings and distinctive beachside and barefoot culinary experiences.

 

From no fuss to fancy and everything in between, you are sure to find your own perfect way to bring in the New Year here in Grand Cayman. 

There may not be snow on the ground or a chill in the air, but the Christmas spirit is certainly alive here in the Cayman Islands and with just a few days left to go, there are still plenty of things to enjoy over the Christmas break:

The Christmas season brings with it many different traditions. And while some traditions may fade with the times, others come back, bigger and better than ever. 

While the Cayman Islands may not be your typical idea of a winter wonderland, there is still plenty of holiday cheer spreading across the islands at this time of year. As the sun sets, Grand Cayman comes alive with twinkling Christmas lights adorning our beachfront condos, roads and homes throughout the island. 

While Thanksgiving isn’t an official holiday here in the Cayman Islands, we always like to take the opportunity at this time of year to acknowledge and celebrate the wonderful things that we have to be grateful for.

One week this summer, a series of handwritten notes were personally delivered to our office by one very special guest, 8-year-old Helia. 

While we are sad to see the year pass by so quickly, we are glad that November is finally here as this month brings with it one of Cayman’s favorite national festivals: Pirates Week.

Now in its 40th year of festivities, Pirates Week takes place in Grand Cayman from November 9th -13th. Music, street dances, competitions, games, traditional dishes and drinks and spectacular firework displays, will ensue across these 5 days.

After a long morning, relaxing on Plantana’s private stretch of Seven Mile Beach, you’ll probably want to grab a bite to eat. Cayman is lucky enough to have several family-friendly and casual restaurants taking part in Restaurant Month this October.

October is Restaurant Month here in Grand Cayman which means guests can enjoy some great deals at selected restaurants across the island, many of which are just a short walk or drive from Plantana’s central location on Seven Mile Beach. 

Every trip to Grand Cayman is a truly extraordinary experience. With our tropical temperatures year round and a different beach for almost every day of the year, including Plantana’s own private stretch of Seven Mile Beach, is it any wonder we have become a second home to so many?  

Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by Hurricane Irma in our fellow Caribbean Islands as well as our family and friends in Florida, the Southeastern states and those in Texas trying to recover from Hurricane Harvey.

One of the great features of our condos here at Plantana is the fully equipped kitchens that provide the perfect place to cook a family dinner. But, when there are so many vacation memories to be made, who wants to waste time shopping for groceries. 

The Public Health Department of the Cayman Islands has recently announced that Cayman has been removed from the Zika virus travel advisory list. 

Work experience in the tourism industry for students is a sure fire way to open their eyes to a future career in tourism while encouraging them to commit to a life of being Caymankind to everyone.
