Nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean, lies the peaceful British Overseas Territory known as the Cayman Islands. Consisting of three islands just 480 miles south of Miami, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman remain our little piece of paradise. Government The Cayman Islands highest official is the Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Duncan Taylor, CBE, who is the appointed representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. He presides over Cabinet, the ruling body of the country. Mr. Taylor succeeded Mr. Stuart Jack, CVO. The Governor's term is four years. The existing constitution of the Cayman Islands, introduced on August 22, 1972, provides for the government of the Cayman Islands as a British Overseas Territory. It established a governing body called the Cabinet, which consists of three officials and five elected members, the latter being selected from the 15 elected representatives of the Legislative Assembly. To see the 15 elected representatives or to get more information visit the Cayman Islands Government website. Currency The Cayman Islands has its own currency, first issued in 1972, whose basic unit is the dollar, issued in notes with denominations of CI$100, 50, 25, 10, 5 and 1 and coins valued at 25 cents, 10, 5 and 1 cent. The CI dollar has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar of CI$1.00 equals US$1.25. Or, the US dollar equals CI $.80. There is no need for visitors to exchange their US dollars into local currency. The US dollar is accepted throughout the islands at a rate of CI 80 cents. However, this can be confusing to visitors: for example, a US$20 note becomes CI$16. Banks do NOT give a better rate of exchange! Major credit cards (with the exception of the Discover Card) and traveller's checks are widely accepted. Canadian dollars, Euro dollars and pounds sterling can be exchanged for CI dollars at local banks. In addition, Automatic Teller Machines accepting VISA and MasterCard with Cirrus affiliation are located at Cayman National Bank and other banks and at Owen Roberts International Airport as well as a few other locations such as the grocery stores. Geography The total land mass of the three islands is 100 square miles. Grand Cayman occupies 76 square miles; Cayman Brac, 14 square miles and Little Cayman, 10 square miles. Grand Cayman is approximately 22 miles long and 8 miles at its widest point, reaching a maximum elevation of 79.77 feet in North Side. Cayman Brac is 14 miles long and 2 miles wide and has the most dramatic topography of the trio. Its majestic Bluff rises west to east along the length of the island to 151.75 above Spot Bay. Many mysterious caves are carved throughout this awe-inspiring natural attraction. Little Cayman, only 10 miles long and a mile wide, is flat, reaching a maximum elevation of 55.75 ft. Its famous Bloody Bay wall Marine Park has been called one of the world's best dive sites. Inland, the 203 - acre Booby Pond Nature Reserve is a RAMSAR site and nesting ground for the Caribbean's largest population of Red Footed Boobies.

Mint2btay// Hello guys! For my Spring break, I went to the Cayman Islands! I was so thankful that I was able to go on this trip. My family travels often, and I am so thanful that we do. Cayman Islands had so much to offer. Prior to going I had only heard of the CAYMAN ISLANDS maybe once or twice. The food/people/culture/weather etc. was amazing! It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! Cayman is so different from the states, and personally I love learning about other countries. It has always fascinated me! Cayman is a smaller island, population being less than 60,000, and they seem to have their own style! I LOVED it!

Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com Heads of state, former heads of state, heads of government, former heads of government, relatives and associates of government officials (as well as a fair share of celebrities) have all been exposed for hiding money in offshore accounts. Here is a list of the top 10 Biggest Tax Havens in the World. (Ranking is based on a combination of its secrecy score and scale weighting) #10 United Arab Emirates One of the world’s best known tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions.It has a low-tax environment and a complex array of free trade zones with multiple secrecy facilities and lax enforcement. A large slice of the inbound money comes in the form gold. Secrecy Score: 77% Tax Haven Status: Tiny #9 Bahrain An island of hospitality to banks and businesses and also one of the biggest global centers for Islamic finance. There is no corporate income tax, personal income tax or capital gains tax. Bahrain also has a wide network of tax treaties with a number of developing countries. Secrecy Score: 74% Tax Haven Status: Small #8 Germany Between $2.81 to $3.38 trillion of tax exempt interest-bearing assets held by non-residents as of August 2013. Germany does not sufficiently exchange tax-related information with a multitude of other jurisdictions and despite recent progress with its anti-money laundering framework, major loopholes and many implementation deficits still exist Secrecy Score: 56% Tax Haven Status: Huge but Shifty #7 Lebanon Many members of the population are high-net worth individuals. Beirut’s offshore financial services sector has been growing at an average of nearly 12 percent per year since 2006. Lebanon’s political and military troubles over recent decades have disrupted the offshore financial sector, but it has proved astonishingly resilient. Secrecy Score: 79% Tax Haven Status: Small and Secure #6 Luxembourg The most important private banking and wealth management center in the Eurozone. It has 143 banks holding almost $800 billion in assets, over $300 billion of which are in the secretive private banking sector and is a center of lax financial regulation and is still one of the world’s most important financial centers. Breaking professional secrecy can result in a prison sentence Secrecy Score: 55% Tax Haven Status: Huge #5 The Cayman Islands Banking assets worth $1.4 trillion in June 2014. Hoststing over 11,000 mutual and other funds with a net asset value of $2.1 trillion. It has 200 banks, over 140 trust companies and over 95,000 registered companies and retains many secrecy features plus laws that can put people in jail not only for exposing confidential information, but merely for asking for it. Secrecy Score: 65% Tax Haven Status: Aggressively Protective #4 Singapore A major wealth management center, with $1.4 trillion in assets under management in 2013. In 2014 it become Asia’s largest foreign exchange trading center. It hosts a lack of serious reforms to its corporate secrecy regime and a lack of interest in creating public registries of beneficial ownership. Secrecy Score: 69% Tax Haven Status: Intentionally Blind? #3 USA The U.S. has led the charge in combating international tax evasion using offshore financial accounts. However, the U.S. also provides a multitude of secrecy and tax-free facilities for non U.S. residents It's one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities. Secrecy Score: 60% Tax Haven Status: Ironic #2 Hong Kong Hong Kong has the second largest stock exchange in Asia after Tokyo with $2.1 trillion under management in April 2015 and over $350 billion in private banking assets. China’s control over Hong Kong has shielded it from global transparency initiatives. It also has not signed the multilateral agreement to initiate automatic information exchange via the CRS. Secrecy Score: 72% Tax Haven Status: See-No-Evil #1 Switzerland Switzerland is the grandfather of the world’s tax havens, known to have introduced Banking Secrecy Laws as far back as 1934 However, in 2010, the US enacted the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act and the Swiss government was ultimately forced to bow to US pressure In 2013, the US government signed a tax treaty that calls for Swiss banks to provide details on their American account holders Secrecy Score: 73% Tax Haven Status: BOSS

Our planet seems to be getting smaller all the time but there remain countless locations which are just as untameable today as they were hundreds of years ago when people set out to explore the unknown. In addition to our limited knowledge of what lies at the bottom of our vast oceans, there are still more than a few islands scattered about these massive bodies of water which remain mysterious to us. Of all the dangerous and remote locations on earth, islands stand out thanks to the fact they are not attached to any significant landmass. Furthermore, in the great expanses of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, islands can be hundreds if not thousands of kilometers from the nearest population center. Remote because they are so isolated away from major land masses, these islands are also dangerous for anyone visiting or wishing to set up a residence. Why? Some are only accessible by ship, meaning in an emergency you are going to have to wait at least several days for help. Other islands are home to dangerous animals, active volcanoes or susceptible to terrible weather. Finally, some of these remote locations remain home to tribes of indigenous people who still practice cannibalism or just want to be left alone.

The Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory, encompasses 3 islands in the western Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman, the largest island, is known for its beach resorts and varied scuba diving and snorkelling sites. Cayman Brac is popular for deep-sea fishing of tuna, marlin and barracuda. Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman Island is the largest of the three Cayman Islands. Whether you are looking for complete relaxation, exquisite dining, exciting nightlife or the awesome underwater sights of our oh-so-accessible reefs, we have something for everyone. The water, the beach discover the nature that makes us beautiful. On the west side of Grand Cayman you will find the famous Seven Mile Beach, the crescent-shaped natural wonder with boundless capacity for relaxation. With sand stretching as far as the eye can see, Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Caribbean - and the least populated. Take a trip into the North Sound and visit Stingray City and the Sandbar where you and your family have the rare opportunity to play with friendly Southern Stingrays. ------------- If you want to get off the beaten path and you are looking for adventure, then a visit to Cayman Brac on your beach holiday is a must. Named for its breathtaking 140 ft bluff, the “Brac” is a rugged and charming 14 square miles and provides adventure seekers and nature lovers with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our islands’ most dramatic scenery, exotic flora and fauna. Those of us who make our home on Cayman Brac take great pride in our island. ---------- The least developed, smallest and most tranquil of our three Cayman Islands, Little Cayman epitomises the definition of "barefoot luxury". Our beautiful island offers seclusion and striking scenery everywhere you look, making it the perfect romantic getaway and one of the top honeymoon destinations. With a population of less than 170, this Caribbean honeymoon destination remains uninhabited.

Thanks for watching........ 1) George Town 2) West Bay 3) Bodden Town 4) East End 5) North Side 6) Cayman Brac 7) Little Cayman The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is a major world offshore financial centre. The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. While there is no archaeological evidence for an indigenous people on the islands, a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, refugees from the Spanish Inquisition, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica. The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden who was probably one of Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the taking of Jamaica in 1655.[6] England took formal control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, as a result of the Treaty of Madrid of 1670. Following several unsuccessful attempts at settlement, a permanent English-speaking population in the islands dates from the 1730s. With settlement, after the first royal land grant by the Governor of Jamaica in 1734, came the perceived need for slaves.[7] Many were brought to the islands from Africa; this is evident today with the majority of native Caymanians being of African and English descent. The results of the first census taken in the islands in 1802 showed the population on Grand Cayman to be 933 with 545 of those inhabitants being slaves. Slavery was abolished in the Cayman Islands in 1834. At the time of abolition, there were over 950 slaves owned by 116 Caymanian families. The islands continued to be governed as part of the Colony of Jamaica until 1962, when they became a separate Crown colony while Jamaica became an independent Commonwealth realm. The Cayman Islands historically have been a tax-exempt destination. On 8 February 1794, the Caymanians rescued the crews of a group of ten merchant ships, including HMS Convert, an incident that has since become known as the Wreck of the Ten Sail. The ships had struck a reef and run aground during rough seas.[10] Legend has it that King George III rewarded the island with a promise never to introduce taxes as compensation for their generosity, as one of the ships carried a member of the King's own family, his son Prince William, Duke of Clarence and St Andrews. While this remains a popular legend, the story is not true. However, whatever the history, in practice the government of the Cayman Islands has always relied on indirect and not direct taxes. The islands have never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or any wealth tax, making them a popular tax haven.[12] Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayman_Islands
