Travel Like a Tourist and Eat Like a Local in the Cayman Islands

15 Nov 17

 

The culinary capital of the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands, is the place for basically two kinds of people. One, who is inspired by the natural beauty and the other, whose driving force is food. You can roam around like a tourist in the lanes of the Cayman Islands to explore the true beauty that will leave you in awe every time you visit it but to delight your taste buds, you must enjoy the food like a local, on the streets as well as in popular waterfront restaurants in Cayman.

When any tourist plans an excursion, the first thing that he or she does is, surf the almighty internet and note down all the famous places to visit and eat. While the spots might be as amusing as the fascinating guides show and present the basic idea of things to do in the foreign land, you should explore the local places on your own as well. The Grand Cayman dining presents an amazing view along with the sumptuous food. Go and find out the variety of options there.

Behaving like a local neither means giving up on your identity for a while and adapting the local tradition to avoid being tagged as an outsider nor does it mean to compulsorily blend in so you don’t feel like a tourist. It is all about exploring the place just like it is meant to be, while simultaneously inhaling all its positive vibes. Here is why eating like a local makes the place all the more adventurous and fun:

#1. Acquaints you with the real Caymanian taste

Divert from the tourist bubble, that revolves around the noted places and make your way to the less known spots of the Cayman Islands that offer revered food. Avoid eating food from the major food chains that you find in your city, instead, acquaint yourself with the real Caymanian taste by indulging in the authentic Cayman delicacies.

#2. Lets you explore the Seasonal Cuisines

We all know that the fish based food in Cayman is famous and available in all seasons. There are plenty of cuisines which are available only in specific season. Go out of your tourist routine and visit the Cayman-based restaurants, which will educate you on the same and prepare those cuisines which you would have missed otherwise.

#3. Allows You to learn more about the Caymanian Way

Even though the way of preparing Cayman cuisines is originally adapted from other Caribbean countries, over the time it has developed its own unique way in which they are cooked. Taste the difference, feel the difference with Cayman cuisines, once you try them.

Embark your food excursion like a local, instead of behaving as a tourist to binge-eat best food in the Cayman Islands. The food in the Cayman Islands is often enjoyed in the company of the Cayman wine and the splendid beauty of picturesque island that many restaurants provide there. So, next time you plan your excursion in the Cayman Islands, enjoy it in a pure Caymanian style.
