Grand Cayman is easy to navigate with many transportation options to choose from. Getting around by taxi can be expensive so we recommend getting a rental car if you're looking to explore all of the Island. Public buses can be a very affordable and reliable way to get around from West Bay to George Town, but we don't recommend relying on the bus system for transportation in the East End or North Side.

Best Ways to Get Around in Grand Cayman
From rental cars to buses, we cover the best ways to get around Grand Cayman and provide useful driving information for newcomers
There are usually taxis waiting at the main resorts, at the Owen Roberts International Airport, and near the Royal Watler Cruise Terminal in George Town. You'll likely need to call for a taxi if you're not at one of these locations. The taxis in Cayman are not metered and there is a government regulated fixed rate for distances and quantity of passengers. We recommend that you confirm the total cost of your trip before departure and ensure the quoted rate is for the entire party.
Renting a car is highly recommended if you want to explore and visit districts beyond where you're staying. You'll find a wide variety of rental car companies available in Grand Cayman with pick-up options from Owen Roberts International Airport or the Seven Mile Beach area.
Water taxi is a great way to cruise the scenic North Sound and get to Rum Point or Kaibo, especially if you do not have a rental car. The trip duration is roughly 30-45 minutes and the fares range from $20 to $40 per person for round trip.
If you're looking for an upscale transportation service from Owen Roberts International Airport that is pre-arranged, a limousine or town car service can be scheduled where the driver will greet you upon exiting the airport and will assist with your luggage.
