Tour To Stingray City, Grand Cayman

wwworld • 3 minutes read • November 2nd, 2016
Our cruise route had its last stopover in 

Grand Cayman Island

, located further south of Cuba. Large ships are not allowed to come close to the shore, so we were taken there by smaller boats.

The island is controlled by a governor appointed by the Queen and sent from the UK. The country drives on the left-hand side of the road, and all 55,000 inhabitants of the island speak English fluently. Compared to Honduras, the civilization is flourishing there: there are well-built roads, cars are in working order, and the whole territory is very clean. Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands. It is 21.7 miles (35 m) long and 4 miles (6.5 km) wide.  
On Grand Cayman, we had pre-booked a sea excursion, provided by a local agency, to 

Stingray city

- the city of stingrays. First, we were taken by bus to the pier, where we boarded a boat and enjoyed a nice sea voyage.

Stingray city

is a sand bank, located quite far from the shore. Anyway, sailing there took more than half an hour.
