Destination of the Year – Cayman Islands
The Cayman Islands is a laid-back place, with kind people and almost impossibly beautiful beaches. It’s remained somewhat under the radar, however; that’s starting to change, though, and thanks to the efforts of its tourism sector the island is seeing new heights, including one of the highest rates of arrival growth in the Caribbean. That’s come without any notable new hotel openings or airlift — simply good marketing work. It’s exciting to see what will happen next.
