Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is the biggest of the three Cayman islands.¬† The eastern part of the island is less developed than the western part where you can find Georgetown, the capital, and the Owen Roberts International Airport. Fastfood restaurants, nightclubs and resort are on this side, on the other side you find more fancy restaurants. Between September 11 and 12 2004 Grand Cayman was hit by hurrican Ivan. There weren’t a lot of victims, but 80% of the buildings on Grand Cayman were (heavily) damaged.
